VLC Tricks

VLC Scheduled Recording

  1. vlc_start.bat
    • Contains the command line to start the player & play a url stream & also records it to a file.
    • You can even name the file saved dynamically based on date if u plan to record it daily use the snippet below
  2. vlc_end.bat
    • Contains snippet below, that closes down VLC
  3. Now schedule these 2 bat files using windows scheduler by creating 2 different start & end schedules for these files.


@echo off
"c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" "http://someurl" --sout="#duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=asf,dst='C:\stream-%date:~7,2%_%date:~4,2%_%date:~10,4%.asf'},dst=nodisplay}"


@echo off
taskkill /IM vlc.exe
