Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows
Warner306, hopefully we can figure out what our HTPC's have in common. I included all customizations (below) I though might be relevant. Please look through the details below carefully; as some details are easy to miss. I don't have very many Kodi addons. If need be, I can list my Kodi settings or addons later.

So, what's you're preferred method to avoid this issue currently? Do you just leave Kodi in debug mode all the time? I'm going to look into making a custom media playback STOP hotkey that switches to Window Mode before stopping playback. Maybe enabling debug mode is a better solution?

Anywhere, here are all the details for my HTPC:
  • Windows 8.1 Pro 64Bit
    - No Pagefile
    - No hibernation or sleep; except for Display sleep
  • Stardock WindowBlinds using Desktop Composition/Aero Glass transparency compatible Theme
  • Stardock ModernMix
  • Nvidia
    - Dual SLI - EVGA GTX980 SuperClocked Edition
    - Driver version 347.88 stock settings
    - Custom resolution of 1920x1080 @60.004Hz (Created with Custom Resolution Utility to avoid Nvidia RGB 0-255 HDMI driver bug)
    - 2 Displays - (55" Samsung LCD as Primary -1920x1080 resolution, 7" Multi-touch LCD as secondary -800x600 resolution)

  • DS Filters
    - Latest 32bit LAV, MadVR, XySubFilter filters. I've never installed any filter/codec packs (very clean system).
    - Filters configured perfectly for DSPlayer
  • Intel Core i7-4790K 4.4Ghz on Asus Z97 Deluxe Motherboard (32GBs RAM)
  • Rainmeter with CoreTemp plugin

If I try to stop the video (by pressing STOP or 'X' hotkey) the entire Kodi app locks up so hard, I have to use Win8 task manager to stop the stuck Kodi application (application turns while and unresponsive).

In order to avoid this issue, I have to switch to Kodi Window mode before I try to stop the video. There's absolutely no lag or any other performance issues; even when using more CPU./GPU intensive madvr settings.

Anyone have any suggestions to why I can't stop the video in full screen mode? The only way I can stop the video in full screen mode is to leave all the OSD Video settings for MadVR at their defaults.

I don't have any performance issues. It works comparable to MPC-HC.

I have the exact same problem. The fact that it can be cured by switching to windowed mode is helpful. We are having trouble catching this in a debug log because there is no error. Interestingly, though, turning on debugging also seems to fix the problem - but I don't think this has helped with a solution.

Can you list the equipment and software you are using including all filters?
