I tried from pure curiosity the new directx only build.
It worked pretty good. The flashing disappeared!
The only minor problem I have is with the MPC-HC player.
I start it with the D3D fullscreen option, and now there is always the
control bar shown. But this is an MPC-HC setting, so I will sort it out hopefully.:o

Just an update on my findings.

greetings

Great, to be honest, I'd pretty much stopped trying to sort it with the SDL builds, I'm sure it was something deep in the bowels of SDL screwing with me. Glad a directx build works better for you.

Just FYI you probably want at least r22777, prior to that tracking the window state ((un)focused/minimized/hidden etc) was broken and XBMC will eat (lots of) your CPU time even when minimized or hidden.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks, sorry for the delay. Here's a link to my log file, hope this helps some.
http://pastebin.com/m503294b3
For the log file I used XBMC in windowed mode (if that makes a difference)
Again I have my playercorefactory.xml file located in:
Users\(my user name)\AppData\Roaming\XBMC

Edit: Nevermind, turns out I'm an idiot Smile. Reading the wiki more thoroughly I discovered my playercorefactory wasn't in the correct location. I didn't actually place it in the userdata subfolder, only the root XBMC folder.

Everything is working well now!

RAR-files and External Player. - McGilljam - 2009-09-13

Ok... I think I've looked everywhere in this thread and I've noticed some posts about RAR-files, but no really good answer... I guess.

So my question are simple:

Is it possible to start an .mvk/.iso from a rared scene-release with an external player like.. KMPlayer or anyone else?

I've been trying XBMCSetup-Rev22522-moby-ext and even the latest XBMCSetup-Rev22886-dx with no luck.

It looks like XBMC want to send the file to the player, but I guess that as XBMC unpack on the fly for the internal player, it fails on external... Oo

Am I right?

You're right. Your extplayer will be given the name of the rar file; not files extracted from it. If your player doesn't support playing files from within a rar then you'll need a wrapper to unpack it first (which would potentially be very slow).
I'm sure some players do support playback of files from within a rar though.

I think I'm having the same problem, I'm trying to send CBZ files to an external player with no success Sad

I'm using rev 22516. I followed the Wiki but couldn't the external player to work until I made these changes:

Players should be added to XBMC\System\playercorefactory.xml

Rules should be added to XBMC\Userdata\playercorefactory.xml


- ralph9994 - 2009-09-15

well im using (as of writing) the latest svn build on windows 7. but i cant get external player to work. i have both the playcorefactory in my progranfiles/... and in my appdata/... folders. and im using the mpchc from the cccp. but it doesnt work. and the log doesnt say anything about unable to open or something. and i cannot select "Play with.." because its not in the list.

Hmmm... can developers confirm this? I'm stuck at 21930 due to refresh rates/resolutions detection/smoothness of playback problems of following SVNs. If the above behaviour is confirmed and intended, I should update the wiki.

I just tried and that isn't working either Huh

@ashlar: no, if true, it's not intentional; you shouldn't change anything in system unless you're willing to lose it on upgrade

That's how I knew it as well. Cheers for confirming this. Nod
