====For VLC Windows 7 & Other Power Users - Run VLC as a Windows Service====
===={{color c="gray" text="MS Windows 7 Example"}}====
Investigations, mostly in VLC forum, revealed that you can run VLC Web Interface as a Windows Service. This means that once set up all you must do is start PC; no manual start of VLC Application and then select "Web Interface". It is invisible to the user on the PC.
**Setup Used**
PC: Windows 7 Home 64
DM: DM800
VLC Version: 1.0.5 (some later versions do not work with the DM VLC Plug-in, see forum for details)
**Steps are:**
1. **PC:** Right click on VLC shortcut in All Programs, VideoLan, VLC Media Player
2. Properties
3. Compatibility tab
4. Select Windows XP SP3 mode
5. Apply
6. Start Button, All Programs, Accessories, Run
7. Enter following command and OK: **C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe -I ntservice --ntservice-install --ntservice-name=VLC-Win7_Service --ntservice-extraintf=http --ntservice-options="--no-qt-privacy-ask --no-qt-error-dialogs"**
Include quotes
8. Allow program to make changes on PC, (Win 7 UAC Standard Unknown Publisher Screen)
9. Go to Windows Task Manager, Services, Services Button, find entry for VLC (VLC-Win7_Service) and start service.
10. Shut down and restart PC and service will run automatically on boot-up.
11. Test if Web Interface is working with: http://127.0.0.1:8080 in Firefox (or IE) on PC and Web Interface should appear.
12. **DM800:** Start Dreambox VLC Plug-in on DM800, ensure that the server setting is set up correctly in VLC Plug-in. (see above)
13. VLC should work on Dreambox and you should see the file listing of the shared drive or folder you setup on the PC.
14. **PC:** The switch to XP SP3 mode will cause the UAC screen to always pop-up when you start VLC normally on PC; the UAC screen issue can be solved by reverting back to Win7 mode; take off XP SP3 compatibility.
