[WINDOWS] External Player Support Thread
OK, total noob with this stuff....
All I want to do is play my 3D MKV's ripped with MakeMKV in Kodi with Stereoscopic Player as an external player, and everything else with the build in player.
Should be straightforward, but I really can't seem to get it to work. :-(
Here's the script - what am I doing wrong?

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="Stereoscopic Player" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\Stereoscopic Player\StereoPlayer.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filename=".*3D.*" player="Stereoscopic Player"/></rules>
<rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".3D.*" player="Stereoscopic Player"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

Any pointers appreciated! :-)

EDIT: Changed <hidexbmc> to <hidekodi>, but still no luck...

Nailed it!

In case someone else wants to do the same, this script worked for me:

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="Stereoscopic Player" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\Stereoscopic Player\StereoPlayer.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".*3D.*" player="Stereoscopic Player"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

Hello Everyone, I'm using Windows 10 with Kodi 15.2 and trying to use an external player. I've tried VLC and MPC-HC, but they both re-open automatically when closed and start playing the stream again. This occurs when watching rtmp streams. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Does anyone have a functional rule for only launching the external player if the source is HD Audio (ie DTS HD MA or TrueHD)? Right now, its launching on ALL my videos, and I really only need it for full Blu Ray rips. Thanks!

Here is what I have right now.

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mpc-hc.exe</filename>
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
<hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
<warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
<playcountminimumtime>1140</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filetypes="mts|m2ts|vob|bdmv" player="MPC-HC">
</rule>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

Add the suffix "Bluray" to each of your Blu-ray rips (e.g. "Move (year).Bluray"). Then, add the following rule to your playercorefactory:

<rule filename=".*Bluray.*" player="MPC-HC" />

This tag can also be used to change the source flag to a Blu-ray icon in many skins.

I have successfully set up stereoscopic player as an external player and have no video problems, but I don't know how to set it up to play the correct audio.

For example I have an MKV video file with DTS-HD MA and am only able to get stereo.

I have no trouble playing all audio formats using PowerDVD as an external player.

I have a windows 10 HTPC with HDMI out to my Denon AVR (7.1 speaker set up) then to my Panasonic TV.

Can anyone suggest where I can find a set up guide for proper audio playback?

use powerdvd 15

PowerDVD won't play 3d MKV files in 3d. Only stereoscopic player can do this.

With external player via Windows. Is it possible to tell my Nexus Player to play the video file from my Windows Kodi setup?

Where do you people get your info from?
PDVD has no problem playing 3D mkv.
Right click your mkv and select open with PDVD.
Put your display in TAB or SBS mode.
Done.

KODI plays 3D mkv.
Why would you use an external player?

The only need for an external player is 3D MVC Frame packed.
You know, a complete 3D Blu-ray untouched.
The only supported player that does EVERYTHING correctly is PDVD.
Fortunately, PDVD can be used with KODI at the same time once you set it up properly.

My goal is to play 3D MVC Frame packed with a player that does not detect Cinavia.

Unless I am mistaken, only the stereoscopic player can play frame packed 3D from an mkv. I suppose I should have specified this.

Playing a 3D iso with Cinavia can be done with PowerDVD and AnyDVD running, but I am looking for a simpler solution via using stereoscopic player as an external player.

Good luck then i'm out of ideas and my brain is bored (No disrespect intended).

Does anyone have there PowerDVD 15 and Jarvis running? If so could you please post your files?

Right now trying these and works but doesn't autostart movie. Also would like to use PowerDVDCinema mode since using on HTPC and works better with Remote.
