I am looking for a type of media player or software that will only allow a video to be played automatically when the device is turned on. I do not want any other options to be displayed. I am looking for a tablet look that will provide this feature, and the video can be uploaded onto it. Any help would be appreciated.

    It may possible, but not a easy task, however this is not a built-in feature of the android. You can download tasker which can help you what you want. Click this URL:

    This is not an easy thing to do. You basically want a device to power on and only play a selected video? You also want to disable any user functions. How is the user to log off? Do you just want them to power on, play video automatically and power off? What if they want to watch the video again? Can you provide some more details of how this is to be used in a real world situation? There may be other alternatives.

    Thank you for the replies.  A scenario that this may be used for is someone purchasing a home.  If they walk inside the tablet/media player would be there for them to pick up, and have a virtual guided tour through the house.  When they leave, the next buyer that walks in could pick up the tablet and the video would automatically que.  I want to be sure that if someone presses a wrong button that the video would not be hard to locate for the next person.  If they want to replay the video I would like for it to just pop up again for them to play if they so choose to do so.

    Instead of a player playing a video, an application could be better for something like that, so they can interact with it.  It obviously means you would need to hire some developer to develop it for you.

    In the example you mention, what would prevent a person just walking away with the tablet? If there is going to be a person there to monitor for theft, why not just have them have a PC with a larger monitor running a virtual walk through. If there is only going to be one video to play, and they are at the location why not just let them walk around for real? If it is to be done remotely, do you plan on having a separate tablet for each property?
