Windows Media Player Control Registry Settings

Windows CE .NET

The registry stores information necessary to configure the system for applications and hardware devices. The registry also contains information that the operating system continually references during operation.

The registry subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Control controls the behavior of the Windows Media Player control. The following table describes the named values for this subkey.

Note   The default registry values vary depending on which features are included in your platform. For more information, see Default Registry Settings.

Value : type Description
URLFlipping : REG_DWORD Default setting is 1. This registry key is the fundamental method of controlling URL flipping support on a platform. Set this value to 0 to disable URL flipping, or set it to 1 to enable URL flipping.

If flipping is disabled through this registry setting then there is no way to enable flipping by any other means. Specifically, changes made to the Windows Media Player control's InvokeURLs property will have no effect. However, if flipping is enabled through this registry setting then the InvokeURL property of the Windows Media Player control can be used to change the player's flipping behavior.

Security Note   A malicious media source can use URL flipping to silently open a browser window and load a dangerous URL. For more information see Windows Media Player Control Security.
