WMP Library and File association RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am not sure this is the proper forum for what I need but it was the closest one I found.
    What I want to do is add a custom extension to WMP libraries.
    I have searched alot then I have changed the registry:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
     
    ; Parts are set, but type already exists
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mntit]
    @="mntit_auto_file"
    "PerceivedType"="video"

    ; WMPlayer extension
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Multimedia\WMPlayer\Extensions\.mntit]
    "PerceivedType"="video"
    "Permissions"=dword:00000008
    "UserApprovedOwning"="yes"
     
    ; WMP MLS Extension
    ; This is very important for WMP to identify mntit files as video files
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\MLS]
     
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\MLS\Extensions]
    "mntit"="video"

    What is happening is that, when I open WMP the files with the extension ".mntit" do appear in my videos section, but after a while (like 2 or 3 minutes) they dissapear!
    All I want is for them to show up on my library.


    Another question, is there a way to specify how a file will open in WMP?
    For instance, when the user double clicks the ".mntit" file, I want it to run my program "MountIt".
    Is that possible? My program is already finished and working fine. What I need is for WMP to run it passing as an argument the file the user has clicked. Is that possible??

    Thanks.
