utorrent play sound when download finishes


Recommended Posts


i've searched before to post , nothing useful ...

So you can achieve this in 2 settings :

1. General for all torrents : Preferences / Advanced / Run Program


2. or for a single torrent : Torrent properties


where the command is :

cmd /c start /min "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\Sounds\Success.wav"

explanation : the path to the player , mine is :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"

and the path to the file to play , for me it's ok this one :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\Sounds\Success.wav"

Happy torrenting !

ps: if here it is not the right forum , sorry , maybe a moderator can move it

Very nice!...But on my 32 Vista machine the player is maximized and doesn't close...

I added this variation "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mpc-hc.exe" /minimized /play /close "C:\Windows\Media\laser.wav" and it plays the sound minimized and then closes. Invisible!

I'm going to figure out if i can translate that into a .bat and run it from that.

if you like a batch code (.bat file) for VLC here you can have it :

cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\"

start vlc.exe --play-and-exit "C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\Sounds\Success.wav"

where "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\" is the path to your player

vlc.exe is the main executable file

--play-and-exit the switch for VLC to play the file and then close the window automatically

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ImgBurn\Sounds\Success.wav" the file to be played

From the help file of the VLC :

-L, --loop, --no-loop Repeat all (default disabled)

-R, --repeat, --no-repeat Repeat current item (default disabled)

--play-and-exit, --no-play-and-exit

Play and exit (default disabled)

--play-and-stop, --no-play-and-stop

Play and stop (default disabled)

--playlist-autostart, --no-playlist-autostart

Auto start (default enabled)

--media-library, --no-media-library

Use media library (default disabled)

--playlist-tree, --no-playlist-tree

Display playlist tree (default disabled)

--open=<string> Default stream

the help file (vlc-help.txt) of the VLC can be dumped from the command line with one of these switches :

-h, --help, --no-help print help for VLC (can be combined with

--advanced and --help-verbose) (default


-H, --full-help, --no-full-help

Exhaustive help for VLC and its modules

(default disabled)

BUT in this case you have to point uTorrent to the bat file ,

let's say :



That's it, have a nice time!
