Android - MX Player on XBMC
#1
Hello,

I have today the XBMC android BETA versions with activated HW-decoding installed of
MyGica Built.
Is it with this version possible to merge MX Player as default player?

I got an old playcorefactrory.xml from an older version but it dont work.

Can anyone help me?

The official version of XBMC for Android works with external players, too...

Hopefully this will give you some idea as it is not exactly what you asked for but close.

The current xbmc HEAD broke support for external players on android several months ago. I have a patch to fix this, and am hoping to get it submitted:

Is there a way to achieve this exact same configuration on Windows 7 without an Android Emulator?

ie.

KODI XBMC for Windows
External MX Player
No Android Emulator Window Box


Or should I be looking at a different External Player like Video Lan?

Video Lan is good and all many file formats supported. But I have to Say I was Impressed with the Playback Quality of MXPlayer Compared to others...


And yes I could probably get there by using an Emulator in Windows like Andyroid or something. But there would be some performance and other advantages to do it without the Emulator I think.

I would be shocked if there were any quality difference between Kodi's internal video player and MXPlayer. However, if you are using Windows and want to use an external player, then you wouldn't want to be emulating an Android video player. You would want to use an actual Windows video player.

Ned I wouldn't have thought that either. But on my tablet I had just tried the mxplayer with KODI and a video that was slightly blocky and pixilated amazingly appeared much cleaner when ran thru the External MX Player instead. Don't know how that could be but there it was. That being said....

On my W7 HTPC in my living room is connected to a 60" Plasma Any pixilation is magnified @ 60" Hence my desire to try MX Player... Thinking maybe MXPlayer's CODECS are doing something better than the built in player.

So what are the Typical goto external players for KODI in Windows? Surely someone knows something about em.. that would be helpful to me.

Should I be posting this somewhere else?
