I have several .vncloc files what contains lines such:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>URL</key>
    <string>vnc://10.10.10.11</string>
</dict>
</plist>

e.g., double click on the file starts the Screen Sharing.app, and connect to the defined vnc URL.

By default it connects in control mode and I need switch manually to the observer mode.

It is possible to add something to the .vncloc file, to connect in the observer mode by default?

.vncloc files are simply URL pointers to the vnc:// URI scheme. This scheme is not standard and currently does not have a way to delineate the mode of the screen share.

    Depending on which mode you are in when saving the .vncloc files (Control or Observe) the relevant <key>controlMode</key> stanza is set to either 0 or 1 and saved to the file. Yet these paramaters are completely ignored when launching Screen Sharing. Very strange behavior. Maybe in future versions these params will be honored. – luckman212 Sep 12 '15 at 22:42
