Open Avidemux using a Project file
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:54:50 PM »
Is there any way to associate project files (on Microsoft Windows OS) so that when I click on one it loads in Avidemux, rather than me having to first open the Avidemx program, and then go to File > Project Script > Run Project.

If I just do a straight-forward file type association with avidemux.exe, the program opens the project script as if it were a video file, and so it generates an error rather than loading the project.

Edit the command launching Avidemux in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\py_auto_file\shell\open\command to include "--run" between "avidemux.exe" and "%1".

(I don't know if this is linked to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\py_auto_file\shell\open\command automatically).
