RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - herod98 - 2013-08-20

Hi All

I ran some power consumption tests today on my late 2012 model Mac Mini 2.5 i5 Ivy Bridge with Intel HD4000 graphics HTPC running Windows 8 64bit via bootcamp.
I was curious the consumed watts when the HTPC was in sleep verus idle in desktop.
I decided then to see the consumption when running XBMC. I had configured my XBMC to have External Player support (MPC-HC) having installed Kawaii Codec Pack (KCP-0.5.4.0).
The findings were interesting.

I leveraged an Arlec (240v) power meter.

With Mac Mini in sleep, it consumes 2w.
With Mac Mini idle in Windows, it consumes 12w.

Test file was a 3GB mpeg4.
Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1280x720 29.97fps [English (Video 1) [Default]]
Audio: Dolby AC3 48000Hz stereo [English (Audio 1) [Default]]

When running XBMC 12.2 Frodo, playing movie using out-of-box XBMC default player (DVDPlayer) - power consumption read 16w.
When running MPC-HC directly from windows (without XBMC) - power consumption read 24w.
When running MPC-HC as an external player from XBMC - power consumption read 32w.

I take it XBMC must be leveraging some type of hardware acceleration (DXVA2) that results in less CPU and thus less watts?

Is there anything that should be done to configure MPC-HC to leverage acceleration ?

cheers.

Hi guys,
Just switch my content to nfs shares instead smb and my tmt external player not work anymore (basically the ISO won't mount) I guess it has something to do with the path.
any advice?

Is it possible to prevent the "Click OK When Playback Has Ended" button from popping up when an external player is launched?

RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - THX-UltraII - 2013-10-29

Since yesterday I m in for a new external player challenge. Was hoping you guys can help me out on it.

Let my tell you what I want in the first place. I want to use MPC-BE as external player for my 2D movie content (.m2ts, .mkv, .mov and Blu-ray structure folder (BDMV/CERTIFICATE). But besides this I want to use TMT6 as external player for my 3D .iso Blu-Ray's.

So I first made a playercorefactory.xml to see if I could get the first part working (use MPC-BE for .m2ts, .mkv, .mov and Blu-ray structure folder (BDMV/CERTIFICATE) playback). I got this working with the following playercorefactory.xml:

Code:
<playercorefactory>
<players>
   <player name="mpc-be" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
     <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\MPC-BE\mpc-be.exe</filename>
     <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
     <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
     <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
     <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
   </player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
   <rule filetypes="mkv|m2ts|mov|bdmv|mpls" player="mpc-be"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

What I did next was trying to make a playercorefactory.xml for my final goal (2 different external players). I made it look like this:

Code:
<playercorefactory>
<players>
   <player name="mpc-be" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
     <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\MPC-BE\mpc-be.exe</filename>
     <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
     <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
     <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
     <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
   </player>
   <player name="uLaunchTMT6" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
     <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 6.exe</filename>
     <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
     <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
     <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
     <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
   </player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
   <rule filetypes="mkv|m2ts|mov|bdmv|mpls" player="mpc-be"/>
   <rule filetypes="iso" player="uLaunchTMT6"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

There s something I must be doing wrong because TMT6 is not starting as external player when selecting a .iso movie.
What I also don t understand is IF I can make this work in the first place because I always have to manually mount the 3D .iso movies before I am able to play the specific movie I mounted. (I mount my .iso 3D movies with Slysoft Clonedrive).


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - karipu - 2013-11-25

Hi,
I am trying to launch multiple videos at the same time using mpc external player multiple instance option.
The problem is that anytime I play a video instance, XBMC goes into a freezed/idle/non-active mode that unable me to play another instance.
Is there a way to tell XBMC not to freeze and stay active when playing video, so I can still use it to launch another video?
Thank you.


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - Rob55Levo - 2013-12-15

Can anyone help me hereHuh
I'm trying to run TMT6 in metro mode (I prefer the interface) as my primary external player when I want menus ( to chose a different version of a movie for instance) I have only changed my code slightly to include "-metro" but only some of my Blu-ray iso's work after this change, Even before it was a bit buggy but it worked most of the time, now half my collection wont play when I include the -metro mode code. I know there's probably a lot of unnecessary stuff in my code but I'm only learning....I find it odd that some of my collection will work in metro mode but everything is fine more or less in standard mode??Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Anyway here is my playIso.bat code:

Code:
Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:iso=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO playiso) ELSE (goto next)

:next
Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:mpls=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO plaympls) ELSE (goto playbdmv)

:playiso
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 %1
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 6\uTotalMediaTheatre6.exe" -Metro M:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 /u
GOTO end

:plaympls
set pth=%1
set pth=%pth:~1,-25%

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 6\uTotalMediaTheatre6.exe" -Metro "%pth%" exit
GOTO end

:playbdmv
set pth=%1
set pth=%pth:BDMV\MovieObject.bdmv=%
set pth=%pth:BDMV\index.bdmv=%
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 6\uTotalMediaTheatre6.exe" -Metro %pth% exit
GOTO end

:end
exit

And my Playercorefactory code:

Code:
<playercorefactory>
     <players>                        
         <player name="Total Media Theater 6" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
             <filename>C:\Users\robin\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\PlayISO.bat</filename>

         <player name="Total Media Theater 5 Region B" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">

             <hidexbmc>False</hidexbmc>
                         <hideconsole>true</hideconsole>

RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - StinDaWg - 2013-12-15

I'm trying to set up my external code to play everything with MPC-HC, except for internet streams to use DVDPlayer. However, internet streams still play with MPC-HC. What am I doing wrong?

RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - iommi - 2013-12-18

I am having trouble with XBMC passing the username:password in the file path to the external player even though I am using the {1} argument in playercorefactory.xml.

Code:
<playercorefactory>
  <players>
    <player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
      <filename>D:\Apps\MPC-HC64\mpc-hc64.exe</filename>
      <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /play /close</args>
      <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
      <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
      <hidecursor>false</hidecursor>
      <playcountminimumtime>1200</playcountminimumtime>
    </player>
  </players>
  <rules action="prepend">
    <rule filetypes="avi|mkv|mp4" player="MPC-HC"/>
  </rules>
</playercorefactory>

Here's the relevant part of the xbmc.log:

Code:
20:09:07 T:6268  NOTICE: CExternalPlayer::ExecuteAppW32: D:\Apps\MPC-HC64\mpc-hc64.exe "D:\Apps\MPC-HC64\mpc-hc64.exe" "\\xbmc:[email protected]\Video\TV\Hostages\Hostages - 1x13.mkv" /fullscreen /play /close

Is there a solution so that XBMC strips out the username:password in SMB file paths to external players?

EDIT: I sorted it out by creating a passwords.xml file and removing the username:password from the sources.xml URI string.

Looks good to me. You could try the following stream rule instead and see if it maybe works-

Code:
<rule name="streams" internetstream="true" player="DVDPlayer"/>



RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - Dom61 - 2013-12-18

Good evening

I kindly ask for a solution, if possible, a problem that occurs when an external player active.

That is just start a file with MPCHC (or another player) generates a beat background sound, like the sound of an engine at idle.
The problem is solved by turning off the sounds of the skin Huh

Hey guys, just picked up PowerDVD 13 a few hours ago and I'm trying to get it set up to work as an external player for XBMC to play strictly blurays. I'd like my PowerDVD 13 to play blu rays and the default player in XBMC to play my DVDs (is this a good solution, or would you guys recommend something else?). In any regard, it doesn't work! I've tried a few adaptations of other peoples solutions, but as far as I can tell, my .xml and .bat file should work well together. Would anyone mind taking a look?

My PlayDisc.bat file reads:
Quote:@echo off
rem you can place your PlayDisc file in \Roaming\XBMC\userdata\

"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD13\Movie\PowerDVD Cinema\PowerDVDCinema13.exe" D:\

The .bat file fires up PowerDVD 13 in Cinema mode just fine, so I know the problem isn't with that.

My playercorefactory.xml file reads:

Quote:<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="PowerDVD" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\PlayDisc.bat</filename>
<args>"{1}"</args>
<hidexbmc>True</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>true</hideconsole>
<forceontop>false</forceontop>
</player>
</players>
</playercorefactory>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="bd|ifo" player="PowerDVD"/>
</rules>

The problem I'm experiencing is that when I select "Play Disc" in XBMC, literally nothing happens. Am I doing something silly?

Blah, solved my own problem. I had to put the closing XML tag for playercorefactory at the bottom of the file like so:

Quote:<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="PowerDVD" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\PlayDisc.bat</filename>
<args>"{1}"</args>
<hidexbmc>True</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>true</hideconsole>
<forceontop>false</forceontop>
</player>
</players>

<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="bd|ifo" player="PowerDVD"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

For all you guys on 12.3... are your movies being marked as watched when using the External Player?
