how to combine dvdplayer(apendix b) and mpc hc..on coding playercorefactory
sorry..im nubie..im not understand about that..
but thanks for fast respons..i hope u can help me..

Add the rule in Appendix B to playercorefactory.xml. For this to work, you need to add the extension (DVD) to every one of your files. The exception is MPAA ratings videos, which should have its extension changed to .flv because you can't change the name.

Something like this: DTSAudioBumper (DVD).mkv

I get much worse performance with MADVR when using MPC-HC as an external player for Kodi (Jarvis 16.1).

When playing files through Windows Explorer directly to MPC-HC those same MADVR settings work fine.

Is there anything I can do to get the same performance in the former?

Its very capable, 980TI/i7 6700k at 4.6ghz, 32GB ram. The rendering time for all resolutions is well below 41 usually, however when using mpc as external player for kodi it sometimes doubles

Kodi and MPC-HC are completely seperate programs. When MPC-HC is opened, Kodi is simply minimized. So I don't know why one would impact the other. Try turning off madVR's fullscreen exclusive mode.

I opted to reduce settings from NNEDI3 to superxbr and now performance is the same. I prefer it this way actually, less noise from the GPU too

Thanks for your guides, they have been very enlightening

Not sure if this has been posted before but if you are using Kodi 17 from the win 10 app store then the path for playercorefactory.xml is
C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Packages\XBMCFoundation.Kodi_4n2hpmxwrvr6p\LocalCache\Roaming\Kodi\userdata

Thanks for the info. Added to the guide.

A another possibility for closing MPC-HC when playback stops without hotkeys... I use EventGhost to control many softwares, and it has a plugin for MPC-HC. This allows you to detect many events from MPC-HC: play, pause, stop, ... I'm still working on it, but it seems possible that you can use the detection of stop to trigger an action that closes MPC-HC. I am still looking to add the condition that it only does this when Kodi is running, not to have this behaviour when MPC-HC is used normally.

Hello

Thank you very much

Happy New Year


I have questions

I created a playercorefactory Lines good or not ?

Code:
<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc64.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>1140</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mkv|avi|divx|ogm|mp4|mov|m4v|flv|m2v|mpeg|mpg|mts|m2ts|vob|bdmv|iso" player="MPC-HC">
<rule protocols="http|https" player="MPC-HC"/>
<rule protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>
</rule>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

<rule protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>
</rule>
</rules>


<rules action="prepend">
<rule video="true" player="MPC-HC">
<rule internetstream="true" player="DVDPlayer" />
</rule>
</rules>

Is there an error or not ?? Smile

You don't need to repeat the rules section three times. Why don't you just copy the playercorefactory provided in the guide? You only need the first part.
