Custom command to open VLC with some options

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to create a script to run vlc to play (or queue if a playlist is already present) some videos. so far in my ~/bin/ folder I have created a file ``myvlc'' with the following command: #!/usr/bin/env bash vlc --http-port 54444 %U This works as a command if I set it as launcher command in an icon, but it doesnt work if from the command line I type: myvlc ~/Videos/Some\ Folder/video.avi How can I modify this bash script and make it work?
