    VLC open to Media Library


    I'm new to VLC and still feeling my way around. I saved some of my favorite urls to the Media Library, which is only accessible via the Playlist. Is there some way to open VLC directly to Media Library?

    The only thing I can think of is to have VLC's icon on the Desktop, right-click and choose Properties. On the Shortcut tab change the path in Start In: to the Folder or section of VLC you want to use. Don't forget the double-quotes that are there. The default location is "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC" but the C: part could be showing for a second partition depending upon how the computer is set up and if programs are being installed customized, e.g. on D: drive instead of C:. After that is working you can Pin the icon to the Taskbar, the icons or Tiles on Start don't have the Properties item on the right-click menu.

    Hi,
    No! But you may go to View/Playlist (Ctrl+L) and then check View/Docked Playlist.
    Next time you open VLC, you'll see Playlist but not Media Library which is exactly bellow it (tree on the left).
    The same happens if you exit VLC having Playlist (or Media Library) opened and "undocked".
    That's the best you can do about that.

    Thanks Berton & Werby. I'll live with the original setup. Open to playlist is close enough. Library is just a click away.
