I remain hopeful the video renderer in DS Player will be upgraded in the future.

I REALLY hope for MadVR integration too, but I am not using it with external player because of the missing integration with DSPlayer and also have read getting subtitles download like XBMC has is difficult with MPC-HC. Is that correct?

But again if MadVR ever gets integrated in DSPlayer it would be fantastic!!!

You can choose the source of your subtitles in MPC-HC or MPC-BE. Opensubtitles.org is the default. I'm sure set-up is more complex than Kodi (I don't use a subtitle database; they are all embedded), but there is flexibility to do as you choose. I also use Xy-SubFilter, which renders high-definition subtitles.

If you have a decent graphics card and know what you're doing with set-up, the picture quality is far superior than DSPlayer and is worth it to me. Getting used to the spartan OSD is disappointing, but outside of a blink of the Windows Taskbar showing when the player closes, the experience of opening and closing the player is very seamless to me. I have never had MPC-HC crash on me on any video.

MPC-BE is the better player of the two, but has focus issues with some graphics cards. Using the guide link posted, I estimate it would take someone two hours to set-up everything and give it a try. You can always leave out the player rules and launch MPC as a secondary player by using the context menu, C, and selecting "Play using." That's how I have my DSPlayer computer set-up. DSPlayer is the main player; MPC-BE is listed as an optional external player.
