Lightbulb How to run program at startup?


Hi, i need help, i will try to describe my problem:

I'm using Debian 7 and some software for video transcoding;
i have access to terminal only via ssh;

I can start the app by caling "screen" then i need to enter for example;

cd /ipsoft/tv/

then run the app ./nameoffapp

This option is runing fine, and any other option without screen terminate my app by closing connection with terminal immediately.

So my question is: How can i run this program automaticly at startup, if i have unplanned reboot...?

I tried rc.local but it's not working

You can script the commands in the file ~/.bash_login which usually runs automatically at login.

See this Arch wiki page.
