DSPlayer (DirectShow Player for XBMC) Frodo build available
#1
THE LATEST UPDATE: I (the topic creator) cannot monitor this topic and update the original post with new info anymore due to personal reasons (yes, life happens). However, the development of XBMC/Kodi DSPlayer still continues. Look for posts by aracnoz in this topic.

DSPlayer is a DirectShow based player for XBMC. DSPlayer support DXVA hardware acceleration (works in Windows XP, Vista and 7), as well as any custom directshow filters (ffdshow, ac3filter, haali media splitter ...).

The original DSplayer branch was abandoned by its initial developers - tieben20, blinkseb, 0wing - to whom we are grateful for their efforts, and currently the development has been taken over by a Russian developer known as Eduard K aka void, who has introduced a number of improvements and upgraded the code base to 12.x Frodo version.
Notable differences from official Windows builds:
- Native iMon VFD/LCD displays support.
- Extended audio streams and subtitle choice dialogs.

The latest build (based on 12.3) can be downloaded from here: http://yadi.sk/d/gc1slU8iFagBU

Note that in latest versions new menus for audio and subs selection were introduced. More details in this post.

12.0 build: http://fragstore.net/dsbuilds/XBMCSetup-...78f-dx.exe
Warning! In this build (20130226) a major change has been introduced: DSplayer's Video Database is now compatible with official XBMC builds (again). However this change may require a disruptive migration. Please read the Wiki article below about migrating your Video Database between different XBMC builds.
You can find more info in this post. I recommend to backup your MyVideosXX.db files from userdata/Database folder before trying any migration steps.
Previous version (2013-02-17) in case you'd want to revert things back:

Source code: http://git.avmedia.su/git/?p=xbmc.git
To compile a Frodo build you need to check-out a respective Frodo branch. "Master" branch is merged with the base XBMC code from time to time, but this code is not tested and its correct work or any work at all is not guaranteed.

Warnings:
- This is an unofficial XBMC build not from Team XBMC!
- This build comes with no warranties, explicit or implied, and you use it at your own risk.
- I (the topic creator) am not the developer of this build. All credits belong to Eduard K. He knows about this forum but has decided not to participate here. I don't know the reason, maybe he is not very fluent in English. Anyway, this is his choice. We are still grateful for his work. I will try to keep you posted about any updates in DSplayer branch development.

Known issues/limitations:
- DSplayer has limited network stream support (including streams from PVR TV-backends). However, playing some types of such streams is possible via LAVsplitier as source/splitter filter. For more information see this post: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1664201
- DSplayer does not support ass/ssa subtitles with complex effects (shadows, karaoke etc.), though it can display those subs with simple formatting (fonts, colors, position etc.).
