Refuse to install Windows Media Player

It’s a pity I have to hack the camera to view printing.
Wish Bambulab would give us a choice between Windows media Player or others players like VLC etc.

While you don’t have a direct choice in the slicer itself, VLC will play the file if you navigate to it location. Yes, I know it’s clumsy but you aren’t locked down to Media Player.
I’ve set the file location for downloaded videos to a directory all their own so they are easy to find.

what OS are you using?

My printing videos run directly on VLC; this setting is related to the OS defaults application to open specific file formats.

Sorry, Maybe I’ve haven’t explained myself correctly.

During printing, for viewing you need Windows Media Player. See attached.

Running Windows 11, but uninstalled all the annoying built-in apps. :grin:

Oh! It’s using it as a plug in sort of thing. I had no idea and assumed it was a built in viewer.

Ok. Now I understood.
I never received that message, as I still have the built-in apps despite not using them.
I am no programmer, but it seems a more straightforward approach and less bug-prone to use the built-in apps ( webview2, edge, WMP,…) that rewrite code to work with a multitude of media players.

True that. I’m no programmer either, but hope future updates will include the necessary drivers to function individually.
