all external players keep RELAUNCHING - zariaman - 2014-07-11

I upgraded to Gothem 13.0. I am using TMT6 for 3D movies for external player in JRiver for other movies. Everything was working fine under XBMC 12 but now when I close the external player it goes back to XBMC menu and starts up the external player again with the movie.

Is there any known issue that can be causing the external player to relaunch? It is very annoying.

I attached the log, I was testing with "the.armstrong.lie.bluray.2013.1080p.mkv" .
Logs shows playback complete then external player launches again.

[WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - zariaman - 2014-07-12

Anyone know the setting to not have xbmc play the video after closing the external player?


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - rmilyard - 2014-07-20

Guys I could REALLY use some help. Right now I am having XBMC play all my .ISO files with TMT. That is working fine. That is how I wanted it. This way I can rip all my BDs to .ISO and play them back at 1:1. Works nice since we have a lot of 3D movies.

However I am seeing that on this HTPC when I try to play back anything the is in BDMV it doesn't play. I have tried on PC not using any of the rules etc and they play fine. How can I change it so my .ISO play with TMT and my BDMV format files play within XBMC?


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - sgibbers17 - 2014-07-28

Hi, I'm trying to get XBMC 13.1 to play a physical blu-ray disc (not ISO) using PowerDVD 13. I have created a playercorefactory.xml and done some reading on the forums and google, but I am unable to get it to work.

This is my playercorefactory.xml

Code:
<playercorefactory>
<players>
    <!-- Locate PowerDVD -->
    <player name="PowerDVD" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
        <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD13\PowerDVD13.exe</filename>
        <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
        <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
        <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
        <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
    </player>
</players>

<rules action="prepend">
    <!-- Bluray Disc -->
    <!-- <rule protocols="bd" player="PowerDVD"/> -->
    <rule bd="true" player="PowerDVD"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

When ever I select play disc nothing happens.

this is my advancedsettings.xml. Do I need to call the playercorefactory.xml in the advancedsettings.xml? I saw one reverence in the forums or wiki (can't remember) about calling the playercorefactory.xml in the advancedsettings.xml but did not say how. I did not find any other instances.

Code:
<advancedsettings>

RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - masoel00 - 2014-08-19

Guys,

I need some help here. I have my external player configured and it works great as long as I am playing movies or videos from within the movie section. However whenever I try to play a movie from the "Spotlight" or from one of the smart playlists it uses the default xbmc player. My playercorefactory has been edited to use potplayer as the default external player, but I don't know where I would need to make changes to my setup to get the smart playlists and "Spotlight" playlists to use the external player.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - sn4pdr4gon - 2014-09-17

I am looking to have Windows XBMC stream all video types directly to a Chromecast, the way I have come up with is to use "Videostream for Google Chromecast".

But I need some help to write the playercorefactory.xml to include Videostream as an external player.

Can anyone help me?

The idea is that all movies will then play directly onto the chromecast without the hassle of going through chrome and activating the cast feature before booting up XBMC

Thanks

Can someone help me fix this?

Hehehe, yeah I can help you in two ways. First one, you need to read up on xml language, you are using both "batch" code and "xml" code that will never work. Second, I'll be posting a How-To for use with PowerDVD as external player later today

this part, is to be in a bat file, (I recommend you wait to the end of the day when am done with the How-To.

Yeah sry about that, I got hold up. I do it today then =)

BTW, Kodi is real good so far at least image vise, so you'll see no image quality improvements compared to PowerDVD if that's what you are after, if not go for it =), guide should be up later today, I'll make a "light one" to get it up faster, I'll update that later as I progress.

Did this get written?

I'm really struggling to get ISOs to play with external player (Helix, on windows 8.1). Can't get Virtual CloneDrive to mount an image (manually of via command line), so am trying to write a PowerShell script. However, I can't:
1. Get Kodi to run the script, the "player" defined in theplayercorefactory.xml shows in Kodi, just nothing happens after selecting it
2. Pass the mounted drive letter to PowerDVD 14. I'm returning the mounted drive letter in the script but don't know how to tell PowerDVD to use it

Any help or advice really appreciate!


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - THX-UltraII - 2015-01-31

Guys, I managed to get it working that MPC-BE plays my .m2ts (2D) movies as external player. What do I need to add to my playercorefactory to make it work so it keeps running my 2D movies (.m2ts files) with MPC-HC and my .ISO (3D) movies with PowerDVD? Running KODI 15.0 Alpha1 and PowerDVD 14. My playercorefactory now looks 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>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
   <rule filetypes="mkv|m2ts|mov|bdmv|mpls" player="MPC-BE"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

EDIT: I m also running ANYDVD 7.5.6.0 and Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.7.0


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - RamboUnchained - 2015-02-01

I can't figure out how to keep the DSPlayer as the default player and just use the external players by choice:

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\MPC-HC\mpc-hc.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>topleft</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>900</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
<player name="PotPlayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\DAUM\PotPlayer\PotPlayerMini.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>topleft</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>900</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
<player name="KMPlayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\KMPlayer\KMPlayer.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>topleft</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>900</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
<player name="WinDVDPro" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\sMedio\WinDVD11\WinDVD.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>topleft</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>900</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
<player name="PowerDVD" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD14\PowerDVD.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>topleft</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>900</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule name="streams" protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|http|https|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>
<rule filename=".*." player="MPC-HC"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

At this line of code, typing "DSPlayer" doesn't work. <rule filename=".*." player="MPC-HC"/>

For now, MPC-HC is my universal default player.

EDIT: Fixed...Kodi was just crashing for some reason.


RE: [WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread - Dom61 - 2015-02-01

Good Morning
I activated the external player PDVD14, but when I insert the disc or when the film is over, I get the warning of external program active.

Image

You can eliminate this warning?

Thank You
