I want a video file to be open automatically on my LG tablet when it boots. Is there any app or setting in Android?

There is a video presentation that I am sending to my clients and all I want is that when client turn on the tablet, my video presentation starts playing automatically.


Could probably be realized using Tasker:

  • Condition: Boot completed (or Monitor Start)
  • Task: Start App

Not sure if you can specify a video file directly here. But there might at least be some video player supporting to automatically start playing the latest playlist, which should make up for it.

You can find a free 7-day-trial of tasker on their homepage -- or try alternative automation apps such as e.g. Llama - Location Profiles. Another possibility is to create the profile with Tasker, and then export it using the Tasker App Factory; this way you'ld get a "free version app" of your profile to distribute on the tablets.

  • Wow, I haven't seen the Tasker App Factory before! That's looks like a really nifty app; I'll have to try it out. – Stephen Schrauger Feb 26 '13 at 15:27
  • Yupp, do so! It even permits you to sell the results :) Ooops, close to off topic now #D But the main thing is: You'd only need to buy Tasker once (for your account), and could provide the profiles for all the other accounts for free. – Izzy Feb 26 '13 at 17:44
