IMHO this information must go into the first post.

http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_use_an_external_player
Happy it helped you. We need a moderator to put the link in the first post.

I'll try to link it from relevant places in the wiki. Currently it's on a search or "already know" state.

Thanks for writing up the docs guys - most appreciated!

Anyone know what extension the youtube plugin uses when it plays the videos? I would like it to use the internal player for that only.

I ve been away for a while but Im back
Is the XBMC_for_Windows-9.04.1-repack2.exe from this site https://sourceforge.net/projects/xbmc/files/ working with external player support? And are there any changes or do I still have to make a custom advancedsettings.xml in order to make it work?

thxz m8!

Yes it has externalplayer support, configured through advancedsettings.xml

The filetype will be the extension of the url used to the play the video, which for the youtube plugin is "php". Probably not a nice way of doing it though, you could use:

<rule internetstream="true" player="DVDPlayer" />

to use the builtin DVDPlayer for all internet streams, or more specifically

<rule internetstream="true" filename=".*www.youtube.com.*" player="DVDPlayer" />

for just youtube streams.

For anyone who is searching this thread like I was: If you want to get XBMC to launch TotalMedia Theatre so you can watch bluray complete rips with menu support without mounting a drive each time, I put together a walk thru of exactly what you need to do to get it working. Thanks to Moby and lots of folks who I picked up info from to get it working the way I wanted!

Linky

Could we link Halo7's solution in the wiki or would it be better to add it inside the wiki?


- ashlar - 2009-07-11

Thinking of it... I'd wait for Slyplayer.

Any news on an update?

Latest SVN doesnt record watched status and the last build posted here doesn't restore XBMC to fullscreen when the external player finishes.

At the moment, I'm manually setting the watched status with the remote using latest svn build.

What changed?, it used to work perfectly when this was first released.

Try my build 21650 from http://www.mediafire.com/moby

What changed with mark-as-watch was the way it's handled in XBMC was completely rewritten, I have updates in my builds but as you point out you have window management issues with that. That's because at the same time as fixing the mark-as-watched flag I'm trying to solve those window management issues for everybody; whilst it's always be fine for some, others have always raised issues with their external players appearing behind XBMC.

this is an excellent plugin for xbmc. thanks for diligent work. I have on request, can we add another criteria for the rules - the size of the media file? say, >5g or <400m, etc. because I have two types of *.iso files, one is DVD images, the other is blu-ray disk images. I would like to use internal dvdplayer to playback dvd images, while use external player to palyback blu-ray disk images. This is something difficult to handle by current rules, and it looks something stupid to differentiate them by different file name.

Hi digital, I'm pretty sure there was discussion on trac about something like this. Back then the developers were considering complex schemes based on the presence of certain file types/names (eg. .m2ts). Your suggestion, based on size, could be far simpler to implement (I hope).
