    Task Scheduler playing a URL


    Trying to get task scheduler to automatically play a Prime Video URL but when I enter the URL to play the video in the Add Arguments field and run the task the URL brings up the full screen video but still makes me manually press play.Any help on getting it to play automatically? windows 10.

    you should be able to set the browser to auto play the video in the browsers settings. Failing that then maybe use a user script addon and then code it to play when it detects video element on the page.

    I am sure there is many media players that can play URL which will mean auto playback, i know windows media player can play some stuff from URL but something like VLC is probably better.

    How far this goes not sure never tried it but i just looked VLC looks to do stuff like you tube pretty easily by the looks of it so that will mean it can play web based media forms.
