Automator + Portable VLC?

Nov 19, 2018

I have a video file on a USB flash drive, I want to set it up so that you can click the Automator Application and have it open immediately in the Portable VLC also on the flash drive. So the viewer doesn't need to install VLC or do any other messing around.
I've tried several recipes in various orders; VLC opens but the video will not auto play or show up in VLC.

The video will play in the Portable VLC by more standard methods.

Suggestions? Thank you!
