Untick / Uncheck

“Open movies in new players” “Automatically Play movies when opened”

“Other: Show Content Guide at startup” and “Other: Pause Movies before switching users” as per the image below

pls untick all items indictated


Note: if you are playing back  “.mp4” files using the Quicktime Assistant on some versions of windows, only the play / pauses work. The file rewind / fast forward don’t work. This has to do with the quicktime player. we have found a work around that if you use the Windows Media Player with the vPedal plug-in and install the extra codec’s which allows the playback of mp4 files that solution will rewind / fast forward.
