Jump to navigation Jump to search

These parameters are only relevant for the web version of Media Station X (i.e. when using the URL http://msx.benzac.de or https://msx.benzac.de) and can be used to override some application settings with fixed values and to set some platform-specific functions.

Note: If you set some application settings via these parameters, the corresponding settings in the application are disabled. For example, if you set the start parameter, the start parameter in the application settings is disabled.
