Launching Videostream from a url link

  • Ok, here is the situation. I have a folder that has a lot of video files in it. Each video file has an associated jpg file that describes the content of the video file. To make searching the videos easier, I wrote a powershell script that scans the folder, and creates an HTML file that contains the contents of the folder, and displays the associated jpg files. Sort of a menu of the videos for my family to use when browsing for content to watch. Right now, the HTML links to the video file with a "file://" as the url. Thus when the link is clicked, the video opens in chrome, and can then be cast to a chromecast.

    This is working today, but what I need to know is if there is a way to build a link that could start Videostream, and auto populate the video file?
