Ok, so this is really pointless, but still, it's going to be funny, though I need a bit of help since I'm not used to writing batch files. My friend sent me this video clip that she found on YouTube last night, and I thought it would be funny to set my computer up to play it while I was at school on repeat (hopefully even full screen) just to bug my parents while I was gone. It can be in any video format that you want if you help me write the batch file lol just figured it'd be a fun little prank.

Video clip:

(Don't flame, it's on my own box, I'm not screwing with anyone else's computer.)

youtube automatically converts it to a flash file

open the flash file and right click on it, select repeat

open it before u leave for school

close it when u get back

lol you've misread, i want the video to run while im gone, not as im leaving (because it will surprise them this way. don't worry about it though, the batch file part is written, I didn't even have to d/l the vid, wrote a batch file

start iexplore http://youtube.com/watch?v=eaE9hvLvfbs

then set it to run as a scheduled task and repeat itself every 1 minute or so

Thanks to LSB for helping me set this up in IRC

if you the scheduled task to run the file off your hard drive, pulling the internet wont fix it, and auto repeat

but that way does work :P
