"Common" group contains check boxes for "Allow To Disable Subtitles", "Tooltips" and "Minimize to Tray". "Allow To Disable Subtitles" affects Full Screen view only.

"Confirm Action" group contains check boxes for "Delete", "Exit", "Save" and "Clone" operations. If some operation's check box is checked then VFS Player prompts user whether to perform the corresponding operation or not. If the box is unchecked then the corresponding operation is performed silently.

"Startup & Exit" group contains check boxes for startup and exit preferences. "Open Last Media On Startup" flag opens last media file on startup if checked. Otherwise VFS Player starts with no media file loaded. "Save Position" flags force the program to save the window and dialog positions on exit and restore them on startup.

"Misc" group contains check box for "Double Click Edit". If "Double Click Edit" flag is unchecked, then double click forces playback or other suitable action instead of edit.

"Subtitle Life" sets time interval in seconds after which the subtitle is erased.

File Extensions List

By default, VFS Player supports only most common file extensions for each player. If someone uses media files or slides with rare extensions that are not in built-in lists, then he needs this page to extend the file extensions lists. Each embedded player has its own File Extensions List. File extensions start with a dot and are separated with comma. Here is an example of extra file extensions for each player.
