Is there a way that I could auto start a music player and play mp3s from a usb stick immediately after my computer has booted up? Ideally the music player would play each mp3 file on the usb stick in turn.
You could also make a playlist and make an application play that in your startup applications.
For example, if I wanted to play playlist.m3u on startup using vlc media player, I could add this to my startup application like this.
And click Add
to install quark you need to compile the file, the easiest is to use the command
if you are using unity you might have the problem that strange-quark wont show up in the system tray (that is where you control it). That is because it's not in the whitelist. to add it simply follow this tutorial.
Now we just need to tell strange-quark what music you want to listen to and enabling the auto play.
Now you are off, reboot and see if it works as it should.
