Autostart a video


Is there a way for linux to autolunch a program?

I have a video file that I have on a USB drive. When I put the USB drive into the computer I want the file to autostart and start playing in full screen having to strike a key or touch the computer. Like a DVD Player. is there a way for linux to be a DVD player? I want to just put the file in and it starts playing. Is there a way to do this?

Yes there is - What distribution are you using? In your distro's settings for autoplay, you can tell it to autoplay DVD's with whatever software you choose.
