DSPlayer (DirectShow Player for XBMC) Frodo build available
I need a bit of help. On Frodo 12.2, I was able to use my config with SVP (smooth video project) perfectly. Now, I have to use MPC or PotPlayer as an external player. While it works, it isn't as seamless as having everything integrated is. Especially considering that I'm using a remote for Kodi and have to use my keyboard to do anything in an external player. The config from the SVP site does not seem to trigger within Kodi. Neither does the one that I was using back during 12.2. Could someone upload.paste their working config files, so I can compare them to mine? Thanks.

EDIT: I want to believe that my use of .strm files is screwing me this time around, but if I play a .strm file VIA MPC, SVP/ffdshow kicks in without a hitch.

EDIT 2: Got it working. Had an extra space in my mediasconfig.

I was doing some housecleaning on Google Drive and wanted to re-post the information below to keep it current:

DS Player Starter Kit

I am new to DS Player and thought I'd post a "Starter Kit" for those piecing through Google searches and various threads in search of up-to-date files necessary to get DS Player operating. These .xml files can be hard to find. My "Starter Kit" includes the following:
  1. mediasconfig.xml
  2. filtersconfig.xml
Download the Starter Kit: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2LAr9I...sp=sharing

Before continuing, you must first obtain a DS Player Kodi installer. The installer is necessary to integrate DS Player into the Kodi gui. The magic comes from the two attached .xml files. filtersconfig.xml is a master list of the all filters, splitters and decoders available to the player. While mediasconfig.xml provides instructions on what filters, decoders and splitters are used when certain file types are played. Using DS Player can be as easy as that.

The starter .xml files have been pre-configured to leverage LAV Filters and AV Splitter for all media types. Feel free to edit and substitute your own filters and splitters as desired. AV Splitter is necessary for full chapter support with .mkv files. Otherwise, LAV Filters should suffice in most other situations.

Instructions:
  1. Run the Kodi installer to overwrite existing copies of Kodi on your system and replace with the integrated DS Player.
  2. Install LAV Filters: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191
  3. Install AV Splitter: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AV-Splitter
  4. Launch LAV Video, LAV Audio and LAV Splitter from the Start Menu and configure to your personal hardware.
  5. Place the completed mediasconfig.xml and filtersconfig.xml in the following location:
    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\dsplayer.
    Overwrite and replace any existing files.
DS Player is configured from the Kodi gui (System>>Video>>DS Player). Ensure "Use system filters (DirectShow merits)" is unchecked to leverage the customized mediasconfig.xml. To confirm the correct filters are being loaded during playback, press O while playing any video file.

Adding Shaders:

Custom shaders can also be added to the rendering pipeline to further enhance video quality. These shaders must be identified in mediasconfig.xml. The list of available shaders is defined in shaders.xml located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\system\players\dsplayer\Shaders. Activating a shader is as easy as referencing its "id" in mediasconfig:

<rule filetypes="mkv">
<shaders>
<shader id="18" />
<shader id="4" />
</shaders>
<source filter="lavsource" />
<splitter filter="avsplitter" />
<video filter="lavvideo" />
<audio filter="lavaudio" />
</rule>

The above rule states that all mkv files will be rendered using shaders "18" and "4", which correlates to "Sharpen complex 2" and "Denoise." To add shaders to other file types, simply repeat this format for each file type. Custom shaders can also be added to the default group by saving any shader file with the extension .psh and declaring it in shaders.xml.

playercorefactory.xml:

If you are having trouble using DS Player with video add-ons containing Internet streams, considering adding the following playercorefactory.xml file to the userdata folder:

<playercorefactory>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule video="true" player="DSPlayer">
<rule internetstream="true" player="DVDPlayer" />
</rule>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

This rule ensures all Internet video is played with the default DVD Player, while other content is played by DS Player.

Pardon my ignorance but why AV Splitter? Shouldn't the splitter filter in LAV be enough? Is it missing some functionality?
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

I take it, it is still not possible to use this build for live tv? quality with the original build on windows is crappy compared to using mediaportal and LAV filters

MKV / Chapters only works with AVSplitter AFAIK.

@aracnoz (or anybody who knows)

I'm trying Helix + DSplayer, but i can't seem to see the filters within the video options when playing a movie. While playing a movie, u press menu and go to video, and the normal options are there, but not the typical DSPlayer options about filters, this is LAV video, LAv Audio, Xysfilter, etc....
Anyone knows anything about it? or is this a known issue?
thanks

This is normal behaviour for DSPlayer at least when using xyvsfilter because it load subtitle when load media file.

Thanks for the very quick answer but I am not using that. I have just updated but it won't work. Downloads it and I can browse to it but it won't show up. Earlier it just loads within the video.
Reply
It may happen on DSplayer default subtitle filter as well. But since I've been using xyvsfilter for so long so I added that as clarification. DSPlayer loads subtitle filter w. subtitle file on media load. Download subtitle with Kodi subtitle plugin require restart media again. Browse & select subtitle won't make any difference while watching, it works only on DVDPlayer not DSplayer.

But if you have subtitle in place , download / overwrite old subtitle would make immidiate change since subtitle filter already load subtitle file & would recognise changes on the fly.

So you just have to restart video for subtitle to load.

Thanks again for your help. Hmm that's a shame since I use that service all the time and in the former version 13.2 it worked in dsplayer so it loaded the subtitle right away. I guess I have to think about going back or hope it will work again in the future.
Reply
I also use it all the time. Going back is definitely a NO for me since 14.x is a really big upgrade especially library part. I'd rather download subtitle and restart video. I can live with that.
Reply
Yeah I guess the same goes for me but then I could just install xyvsfilter to try out and see if it makes a quality difference. One downstep for me though is no more 3D with dsplayerSad
