In this post we will see how to deploy VLC media player using SCCM. VLC media player is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework. VLC media player plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. This player is compatible with almost all the operating systems. It also allows customization using some cool skins. Once you have written the script you can use SCCM to deploy VLC media player silently.

I am not going to go through all the steps on how to package an application this post will give you the information you need to package your own application.

First, open up notepad and paste the following line:

“%~dp0vlc-2.2.8-win32.exe” /L=1033 /S

Change the .exe file name if required and save the notepad as Install.bat.

When you are configuring the application for SCCM you will need to make sure you select the “Install.bat” as the installation program and paste “%ProgramFiles(x86)%\VideoLAN\VLC\uninstall.exe /S” for the Uninstall program.

For the detection rule use the registry key for the VLC version you are installing, it is located here: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\VideoLAN\VLC\Version

And you are now ready for deployment.
