with them disabled it works fine.

Also whats with the gui lag? i haven't changed any settings yet and i'm just using my system directshow stuff but theres like 3-5 seconds of lag everytime i start\end a video.

Try disabling XySubFilter and see if the lag remains.

Another issue I found earlier today: When the path to the video is passed like
smb://<user>:<password>@server/<path>/<filename.mkv> DSPlayer fails to play the video (with any renderer choice)

12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGLoader::InsertSourceFilter Failed to load file in the splitter/source
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGLoader::LoadFilterRules Failed to insert the source filter
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGManager::RenderFileXbmc Failed to load filters rules
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CDSPlayer:Tonguerocess - Failed creating DS Graph

But when the path is passed like
smb://server/<path>/<filename.mkv> it works just fine.

this is an important scenario for folks using the MediaBrowser (Emby) integration wtih Kodi since this is how they are passing the file. I will open a similar comment on their forum.

Do you see this as something you can fix on DSPlayer side? It works fine with the default Kodi player.

Daniel..

I am having the same issue. dbezerra - were you able to come up with a solution or are you using DVDPlayer for now?

- it sometimes play the wrong audio track (depnding on the movie) : "eng" when I did selected "fre" in LAV Splitter

- forced subtitles are not displayed inside Kodi DSPlayer BUT are correctly displayed when I play the same movie inside MPC-HC

I don't know if it is a revelant info or not but I use Kodi in portable mode (-p switch) and use a MySQL centralized database.

Thanks

Are the same issues present when using DVDPlayer? You should first determine if this a Kodi issue or a DSPlayer issue.

Thanks for your help.
So I did revert to DVDPlayer and all the isues are the same : wrong audio track, no forced sub ect...
I wonder if it can't be that the database remembers bad choices for audio track and subtitles.

I will try to test with a new install of the latest main Kodi nightly without database.


EDIT : bingo! with the latest nightly, and without MYSQL DB, forced sub=ok , audio track=ok
I will try with Helix 14.2 "standard version" and database.

Remove XYSubFilter from the media rules in DSPlayer settings.

As a workaround, define a new source path in Kodi with the proper account and password. Then, in the Emby settings, remove the information about account/password.

This way, Kodi will have the credentials to log into the network share and Emby won't pass the account:password parameter that fails when using DSPlayer.

If you downloaded the starter kit you did. Otherwise, I would download the starter kit in the guide link and start from there.

I'd like to add this to the guide, but I'm not clear on what you are saying. Could you provide more detailed instructions?

at moment dsplayer follows these rule for select tracks

- set previous selected track
- if there is no entry into db, set the first external track
- if no success selects the first internal track

i would to change the last step, then if there is not entry in db and there is not external sub, the splitter will choose which track select, so forced tracks or preference for language etc etc

I will work on this over the weekend

I enabled the "Use System Filters (Directshow merits)" thing.

and mediarules are blacked out.

My DSPlayer subtitles are acting really weird. There is a subtitle that is stuck from an episode of a TV show, and that subtitle displays (actually plays, not frozen) on all other videos.
So even if I watch another completely unrelated TV show I get subtitles from a show I watched a week ago...

How can I reset the subtitles?

Does DVDPlayer do the same thing? This might be a question for the Windows forum. A debug log would be helpful.

DirectShow merits will not perform as well as custom filters. I would suggest setting up LAV Filters, AV Splitter and XySubFilter.

HOW TO - Configure Kodi DSPlayer with LAV Filters, XySubFilter & madVR
