Windows 7: Create A Scheduled Task - VLC Movie Player

Create A Scheduled Task - VLC Movie Player

I have been trying to get VLC media player to launch a video at a set time however I can't figure it out at all.

I've got the command down that launches the program, but there is nothing in the documentation that informs me what switch or option is used after the command to specify which video file to use.

Is anyone familiar with this program? If I should bring this to their support forums I apologize. I just figured it was (one of) the most popular video players due to it's configurability.

If its your default media player perhaps you can just create a scheduled task to open the specific video itself?
