Don't know if this is right way to do it, but now i config eventghost send stop signal to xbmc, when i press stop from dvbviewer. That works ok.

And when i quick change to dvbviewer, i just send screensaver window and stop action, don't find any no audio/video command.

Now dvbv,xbmc and eventghost works pretty good and changing is fast.
I have to select "Use a fullscreen window rather than true fullscreen", because there is some small issue with dvbv picture quality if i use real fullscreen.


- dub273 - 2011-04-27

I've searched this forum, searched every FAQ I could, and the external player thread in the how-to guide forum, and I still don't have an answer to the question of the necessary "protocols=..." value to launch TMT3 when an HD DVD is inserted into the drive. Blu-ray discs work just fine.

Now, if someone can figure out a workaround for this problem I'm having, I won't need said value. For a while I was using a rule where protocols="" (blank), which launches the HD DVD just fine, and exited just fine. Recently however when I exit TMT3 it doesn't revert to XBMC, but immediately re-launches TMT3 to form an endless loop.

Clear as mud?

I've been able to set MPC-HC as External Player

But, when i select a movie to watch,

XBMC minimizes and then MPC-HC launches and the movie starts playing...

My question is,

is there a way to prevent/stop XBMC from minimizing??

i just want it to stay where it is.......

i dont like to see my desktop even if its for a second Tongue

thanks!!!
Were you able to solve this? Even with hidexbmc set to false it minimizes and shows the desktop Confused

Ashlar - don't know the intricacies of the coding etc, but I don't think it is a situation which can be resolved - sure I read somewhere (on here), that it had something to do with DirectX\d3d or something similar which needed to fully close before gaining focus on the next object. Perhaps all just jibberish and I dreamt it - but sure it was something like that.

Someone else worked around it on another forum. think it may have been dbone's, where they had no screen icons and a black screensaver, this was about as close as I saw anyone get to seamless transfer - incidentally, the same process occurs using an external player in both Media Portal and MediaBrowser.


- ashlar - 2011-05-19

Thanks steelman for your answer. What I find strange is that I'm pretty sure to remember this not being the behaviour when external player was introduced (otherwise what would be the point of the hidexbmc setting?).

I hope a developer will be able to shed some light.


playing dvd disc width power dvd - arzach - 2011-05-31

while i'm waiting to find a blu ray to test, i'm trying to play dvd disc width power dvd.

I'm using this xml:

Code:
<playercorefactory>
    <players>
        <player name="powerdvd" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="true" video="true">
            <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD8\PowerDVD8.exe</filename>

        </player>
    </players>
    <rules action="append">
        <rule name="mydvd" dvd="true" player="powerdvd"/>
    </rules>
</playercorefactory>

but in my log xbmc says the rule doesnt match:

Tuna Wrote:Hi !

First of all, I am an absolute beginner in xbmc.

I have searched on google and this forum for many hours without understanding how to do.

I would need the following:

when I press on my blu-ray iso file in xbmc, I would like it to automatically mount in daemon tools and then automatically playe in the external program TotalMedia Theatre 5.

but I only want to use TotalMedia Theatre 5 for bd.iso files.

I'm using XBMC 10.0 (Dharma).

would be greatly appreciated if someone could write a simple step by step guide so that I can fix this, that even a total beginner as I can understand.Smile

Hi guys,

i'm trying to do the same thing.
I created a playercorefactory.xml file.
Code:
<playercorefactory>
  <players>
   <player name="TMT5" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
   <filename>C:\Programmes\AutoFrequency\AutoFrequency.exe</filename>
      <args> "{0}" </args>
      <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>    
          <hideconsole>true</hideconsole>
          <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
   </player>
  </players>
<rules action="prepend">
  <rule filetypes="iso" player="TMT5"/>
  <rule name="Blu-Ray" protocols="bd" player="TMT5"/>
</rules>

Autofrequency is a program that fixe screen frenquency to 24p when reading a bluray. It mounts iso in daemontool and lanch tmt5.

When i try to read an bluray iso file, nothing hapen.

here's my log
Code:

I'll be having exactly the same problem (when I get the external player thing working that is as I can't currently find where to turn on the 'Play Disc' option on the home screen in Aeon Nox).

I know the protocol for blurays is bd, but no idea what it is for HD-DVD's.

thx

hi,
I have bluray folder (list of HD bitstreaming movies) next to movies, tv shows folders.
is there any way to play them in MPC-HC as an external playe from xbmc?
I mean can i modify advancedsettings.xml so it recognize the main folder name (bluray) not the file name, then play them in MPC-HC ?


- avpap - 2011-06-06

Ok guys I really need your help. I'm trying to use MPC-HC as external player through XBMC but i cannot get it to work. It is loading but the Video stutters, playing frame-frame.

This is my playerfactory.xml

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files\Media Player Classic - Home Cinema\mpc-hc.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".*1080p.*" player="MPC-HC"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

and my advancesettings.xml
<advancedsettings>
<video>
<defaultplayer>externalplayer</defaultplayer>
</video>
<externalplayer>
<filename>c:\Program Files\Media Player Classic - Home Cinema\mpc-hc.exe</filename>
<args>-fs</args>
<forceontop>true</forceontop>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<hidecursor>false</hidecursor>
</externalplayer>
</advancedsettings>

If i play a movie in straight MPC-HC everything is great (I use Madvr + Lavcuvid) but in XBMC + MPC-HC = Heavy stuttering.


- steelman1991 - 2011-06-06

First things first - only a playercorefactory xml is required - delete the advancedsettings xml - also play around with <hidexbmc> and <hideconsole>settings - try setting both to 'true'. I had to change both to true to get it to work.


- M3Rocket - 2011-06-06

Try changing this:
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>

to:
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>

XBMC currently absorbs a lot of CPU cycles if it is not minimized/hidden.


- avpap - 2011-06-12

Problem solved by ticking the "use fulscreen windows rather than true fullscreen". Video runs smoothly through MPC-HC (Madvr + Lav Cuvid).

Only problem a slight stutter when scrolling in menus.

Hooblue Wrote:I'll be having exactly the same problem (when I get the external player thing working that is as I can't currently find where to turn on the 'Play Disc' option on the home screen in Aeon Nox).

I know the protocol for blurays is bd, but no idea what it is for HD-DVD's.
I'm forced to conclude that HD DVD protocol handling it isn't built in to XBMC at all. I did find a somewhat messy workaround, which I describe in more detail in the following post elsewhere:
