Well, for someone new, the amount of info can be too much, so, i will just tell u, DSPlayer is not part of XBMC nowadays. It was, but was abandoned. The work is carried on now for fans and nice ppl with good knowledge. XBMC uses its own codecs for playing video. DSPlayer is just a directshow filters player widely configurable through XML files. Means, u are not limited to XBMC codec, but u can use LavFilters, CoreAVC, etc... almost the combination u prefer. So, this nice ppl mantein and compile non official builds, using the official one and the DSplayer that they continue to improve and make bug free as much as they can.
This is fast notion, and for in depth info, now yes, u should read the wikis and the info in this post and the first post in the last thread about Eden version of XBMC (version 11, before Frodo that is version 12) http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...layer+Eden
