Another External Player Code, but Very Simple to Setup
(2015-05-20, 23:41)rmilyard Wrote: Well I have been messing with this a lot in PowerDVD 15. I am finding that this code works best for getting Cinema Mode.


I am using this on my HTPC in Theater Room with our Epson 3d 2030 projector. We have a Harmony Ultimate Home remote to keep simple for family. When I was using TMT 6 if pressed stop on the remote it would close TMT and go back to Kodi. With this setup it doesn't. You need to click the X to close the program then you'll get Kodi. I would like to find some way to close program easy so doesn't need to keep a mouse in Theater room.

I've tried all of your combinations of scripts. Some work better than others. Did you ever settle on one?

Also, as you know, PowerDVD 15 will play an iso directly - no mount needed. Have you attempted to make that work?

Thanks for your efforts to get PowerDVD 15 working!

It also selects the internal player or external player based on content by default. I'm sure you can adapt for PDVD but if you are not using 3D, the code will be of little use to you. I would also suggest you try changing these lines in your code:

I am on Kodi 14.2. All my 3d movies are in ISO. Could someone tell me whats wrong with my playcorefactory.

DId you ever get this fixed?

Question: before i was running kodi + tmt5 without any problems to play and mount my fisical blurays, bluray iso's and bluray BDMV folders.

But now on windows 10 TMT5 isn't working 100%. So i switched to powerdvd14. First the problems started with video/audio out of sync. Solved that in the powerdvd14 settings. Now the iso files mount and start/play fine. I only have problems with BDMV folders. (bluray/movie/bdmv/.......)

When i open powerdvd14 and open the folder manually the movie starts. But when i try it from kodi powerdvd14 starts but won't play the folder.

More people having this?

playiso.bat
Code:
Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:iso=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO playiso) ELSE (goto next)

:next
Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:mpls=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO plaympls) ELSE (goto playbdmv)

:playiso

Should work. What option do you have set as "System > Settings > Video > Discs > Blu-ray playback mode" in Kodi?
Depending on this option the code could be much cleaner/simpler (the above will cover all options though)

in kodi its set to "show simplified menu". But i think its windows 10 that is doing stupid things Tongue When i start an iso VCD is showing the file but windows doens't mount the disc. When i return to desktop and click in the task bar on the iso it mounts directly to F: or E: or other drives. But when its started from kodi the drive isn't mounted so powerdvd can't find the drive/iso to play.

windows 10 is great, but sometimes........ Tongue

edit: fixed. Somehow windows 10 directly unmounts the file. So i removed this line

Code:
"C:\Program Files\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 /u

Hello everybody, thanks for your advise. I have create a script for auto-mount ISO in win8 and above and play it in mpc-hc. No security issue.

i don't get it...
i read some pages in kodi forums as well on other sources how to set up the playercore.xml for external players. But no luck so far.
I understand the way how this file works and is build up, set up everything i need for running PowerDVD for DVD&Blu-Ray.
But kodi doesn't either show me that in context menu. Yes i hopefully saved this file in its correct location.
To be double sure i saved it in three locations: userdata in kodi main folder, userdata under %appdata% and system in kodi folder.
But like you can imagine, this had no effect at all.
Until now the only way is to use the autostart option from windows
Win10 x64, Kodi Leia 18

Here my script for mount and unmount ISO with Windows8 (and above):
Code:
powershell -ExecutionPolicy "RemoteSigned" -command "& {$audio= 12 ;$mpc= '"C:\Program Files (x86)\K-Lite Codec Pack\MPC-HC64\mpc-hc64.exe"';$mpcP = ': /fullscreen /close /play /audiorenderer ' + $audio.ToString();Mount-DiskImage -ImagePath \"%1\";$letter= (Get-DiskImage -ImagePath \"%1\" | Get-Volume).DriveLetter;start $mpc -ArgumentList $($letter + $mpcP) -wait;Dismount-DiskImage -ImagePath \"%1\";}"
copy and paste only, can't provide a file because of "ExecutionPolicy".
Somebody can tweak this script? (maybe not, I know)

Thanks

I am trying to use an external player for bluray iso's as I have 2 that appear to branch and the internal player choked when playing it ( Inside out ) . I have TMT which I hope deals with branching blurays better. I want to use the external player for bluray iso's ONLY . I have a number of dvd iso's of tv episodes set using bookmarks and dont want to break that . I also have some bluray of tv shows scraped by pointing to the playlists - for both the internal paler works great , and I want to keep it that way .
i dont want to reinvent the wheel if what I need has been done before , I have looked at a number of playercorefactory files and playiso.bat , and dont see why the playiso file includes mpls and bdmv entries .

I have Kodi 15.1

thanks for any assistance.

Then PDVDLP loads then it jumps right the unmounts iso. If I put a timeout of say 60 secs you can play iso for 1 minute. If you run PowerDVD.exe instead then the unmounts doesn't run until you close the program.

dont know but had a Problem today, that sounds a Little bit like your's.

that drives me mad cause i had no Trouble with powerdvd 15 so Long

the issue was that powerdvd 15 mades himself the standart Programm when a DVD/BD etc is inserted into a drive (even when it's virtual)
after deactivating this in Windows Settings all went back to normal working

the big Problem was that i could not see that 2 times PowerDVD.exe is called when starting BD from Kodi

im using Windows 10
