HOW TO - Launch MPC-HC/MPC-BE with madVR as an External Player

Unfortunately, that guide almost entirely deals with setting up MPC-HC and its component parts; something which isn't a problem for me. My player works fine, and I can play videos selected via file explorer, it's just that Kodi refuses to send the URI to MPC-HC, of whatever media I select - or some other similar reason is preventing the use of MPC-HC as an functioning external player in Kodi. I've again amended my xml with an alternative configuration, but the same thing happens, with a brief screen flicker, as if it tried to do something, but instead did nothing. Here is my latest xml:

Quote:<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\KCP\mpc-hc.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}"</args>
<hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mkv|mp4|avi|divx|mpg|wmv|flv|ts" player="MPC-HC"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

I'm feeling as if I may have to give up on this program, as I can't see any weak point on my part, and I value MPC-HC over a nice library interface. Is there no possible solution to this?- just a random and incomprehensible incompatibility on my system?

Your playercorefactory.xml is wrong. That guide contains a playercorefactory.xml that should be copy and pasted into your userdata folder. I have been using it for over a year and it works fine.

Specifically, your path to the player is incorrect, and your rules section is using incorrect syntax.

Is the DVD image an iso? That might be one place to start. I would use a rule similar to the following instead:

<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mkv|mp4|m4v|mov|m2v|m2ts|avi|divx|ts|mpeg|mpg|ogm|wmv|flv" player="MPC-HC">
<rule name="streams" protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|http|https|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>
</rule>
</rules>

I would also check out this guide, if you haven't already:

Yes they are isos. I noticed in the documentation there was a variable for both DVD (mounted isos) and DVDImage (iso). I used those but didn't get any results:

<rule dvdimage="true" player="dvdplayer"/>
<rule dvd="true" player="dvdplayer"/>

So I am not sure what issue is now. I have been using this setup for awhile to watch my .iso and 3d .iso files via external Player TMT.

Starting a few days ago about 90% time when launch TMT 6 I get sound but no picture. I stop the playback and it stops but video never recovers. Just same black screen.

I have changed nothing! I am not sure what is going on other than maybe Kodi 14.2 issue with external players? However seems like same issue if just use TMT to play the mounted images.

Maybe PowerDVD 14 is better now?

Any ideas?

You answered your own question: "seems like the same issue if just use TMT to play the mounted images." This is an issue with TMT and your system.

Did you check the rules for external players? Every possible combination of rules is covered there.

I'm a new user to Kodi. Started using it almost a week ago, so I'm still learning. I'll have to look. Thanks for responding.

Ah, thank you! The file destination was the problem and I seriously cannot believe I made such an integrally basic mistake. What happened I think, was that I navigated to the folder to copy the filepath as C:\Program Files (x86)\KCP\MPC-HC - and this threw me off, because I must have just assumed that the last MPC-HC was the file itself, and then tacked on a .exe, rather than recognising it as a folder. Ah well, that's it sorted now and everything's running smoothly. Thanks a lot.

So I am looking for some help. I have been using TMT 6 for my external player to play all my BD .iso and 3d BD .iso files I mount with VirtualClone.

It's been working pretty well until last few MS updates it seems. I was thinking about buying PowerDVD 14 since it's current and supported but when trying the trial version found few issues maybe someone can help with.

First is I can't seem to get PowerDVD to auto play when launched from Kodi. I am not sure what might be wrong other than maybe a command line statement needed?

Also doesn't seem to auto detect source if it's 3d content. All my 3d and 1 to 1 copies of movies so they are TRUE 3d. I can change it manually and works however when start a movie non 3d I need to manually change back.

Trying to keep simple for my kids.

The PowerDVD forum might have more users who are experienced with this software.

I could never really get PowerDVD 14 to work, but even with the most recent Windows updates my TMT 6 works great. For support I've been thinking about trying PowerDVD 15 that was just released but since I couldn't get 14 to work I'm worried about getting 15 to work.
