Another issue I found earlier today: When the path to the video is passed like
smb://<user>:<password>@server/<path>/<filename.mkv> DSPlayer fails to play the video (with any renderer choice)

12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGLoader::InsertSourceFilter Failed to load file in the splitter/source
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGLoader::LoadFilterRules Failed to insert the source filter
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CFGManager::RenderFileXbmc Failed to load filters rules
12:06:04 T:924 ERROR: CDSPlayer:Tonguerocess - Failed creating DS Graph

But when the path is passed like
smb://server/<path>/<filename.mkv> it works just fine.

this is an important scenario for folks using the MediaBrowser (Emby) integration wtih Kodi since this is how they are passing the file. I will open a similar comment on their forum.

Do you see this as something you can fix on DSPlayer side? It works fine with the default Kodi player.


I am having the same issue. dbezerra - were you able to come up with a solution or are you using DVDPlayer for now?

As a workaround, define a new source path in Kodi with the proper account and password. Then, in the Emby settings, remove the information about account/password.

This way, Kodi will have the credentials to log into the network share and Emby won't pass the account:password parameter that fails when using DSPlayer.

I'd like to add this to the guide, but I'm not clear on what you are saying. Could you provide more detailed instructions?
