What version of XBMC are you using?

<rule filenames="*3DISO.iso" player="3DISO_Player"/>

Is this your exact playercorefactory.xml?

Because it's missing an opening <rules> tag. That might be the source of your problems.

Do you have any other rules or players in your playercorefactory.xml?
Frodo ignores any ISO file rules now, even though it shows as the default player under "play using ..."
Once you make a selection on the popup menu ( 'play main title' or 'show Bluray menu') the filetype actually changes and ignores the ISO rule, unless you force it by going to "play using..."

Instead of

Code:
<rule filetypes="iso" filename=".*3DISO.*" player="3DISO_Player"/>

Try

Code:
<rule filetypes="iso|bdmv|mpls" filename=".*3DISO.*" player="3DISO_Player"/>

See if that fixes it.

Hello guys,

I'm wondering if using everything works with an external player. Such as bluray folder, livetv, pvr, menu overlay such as EPG while watching something.

Thanka

Is PotPlayer not launching at all or just not launching in full screen?

Preferences - General - under 'When Starting' section make sure it is set to fullscreen.


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - hentai23 - 2013-01-14

its not launching fullscreen , and id like to not have it autolaunch into fullscreen in its potplayer settings , since i use it in windows explorer as well to test video sources sometimes and there i use more than one instance so autofullscreen for every instance isnt good , im asking cause back where ive used to use mpchc there was a setting to have mpchc launch in fullscreen when selecting a movie from xbmc but not when normaly selected in explorer , well thats what i want with potplayer Wink


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - acejh1987 - 2013-01-14

I'm not sure how to auto launch PotPlayer in fullscreen from XBMC, the usual "/fullscreen" setting doesn't seem to work maybe someone who uses PotPlayer can help out more.


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - hentai23 - 2013-01-14

was thinking the same thing


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - hentai23 - 2013-01-17

you gotta be kidding me , theres no way except to select potplayer to start into fullscreen every time i play a movie in windows explorer as well, common someone gotta have an equivalent code for potplayer that allows it to launch into fullscreen from xbmc without having to make it a permanent setting in potplayer itself, please

if I were to guess, I'd say that you should contact PotPlayer's support to find out how to use it, instead of here. they probably know a lot more about their product than the XBMC devs, I'd hope?
