Action to Play Video

I am attempting to write an action that will play a video when deployed. BigFix reports as completed, but the video doesn’t play. I have had a look at the override command but can’t seem to get it to work.

Anyone with previous experience doing this and have some advice?

Thank you!

Which format is the video, which OS and which media player?

It’s an mp4 with mainly Windows 10. Was thinking of using Windows Media Player

Are you overriding the user with

override run

Otherwise it would use LocalSystem to play the video, and LocalSystem doesn’t interact with the desktop session.

Thanks Jason, that’s the combination and information that I needed.

My Action Script which worked successfully is:

override run
run “C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe” /fullscreen “C:\Path\To\Video\Here”

Then I have another task which enables the WM Player Feature before the video is played.

Thanks for the assistance!
