-v, --version          : display the version of vmware player used
  -u <name>       : username to login at the host

  -p <pass>       : password to login at the host
-X, --fullscreen        : Start player with the supplied VM in full screen  mode
-U, --unity             : Start with unity enabled
-k, --no-kiosk-warning  : Start an ACE VM without warning
-K, --no-kiosk-mode    : Start a kiosk mode ACE VM outside of kiosk mode
  -h <host>              : (unsupported) hostname or IP on an remote machine (can be running ESX or VMware Server!)  
  -u <name>               : (unsupported) username to login at the remote host
  -p <pass>               : (unsupported) password to login with at the remote host
 
The unsupported -h option works best on  the linux vmware player, when using  windows you MUST also supply the VM  to run.  On linux if you do not supply a VM,  it will present you with a dialog to select the virtual machine from. When trying to access a VM hosted at a VMware Server host, you have to add the :8333 port to the ip or hostname.

Examples:
Connect to a remote ESX/ESXi host using player on IP address 10.10.10.10 and select a windows 2003 VM on the datastore1 storage.
