Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows

I read advice...
"I believed this behaviour is an approach to fix problem with windows focus which is partial cause of blackscreen problem. We probably have to get use to it or just auto-hide taskbar. "
"I solved all focus problems by making windows to boot directly to kodi as a shell... URL..."
And the best: Wink
"This behavior is normal if using madVR in fullscreen exclusive mode because Kodi is minimized to make room for madVR. The Taskbar will flash as madVR is closed and Kodi is reopened.
Try adding a pause between refresh change to mask the Taskbar."

I wrote that "I tried test build 2 - It worked fine without this little problem."
- no black screen bug, without having to install Kodi as shell, pause = 2.1sec...
With build (20150519-08e0b5e) I reproduce a sequence of clips (play folder with *.mov from camera Nikon P330) - after closure clip I see Windows taskbar, Kodi inerface and after play next clip. With test build 2 - end clip, pair seconds black screen, and after play next clip! Without "kodi as a shell"...

I've seen the Taskbar from the beginning. One of the builds might have fixed this. If you use an external player, you will get the same thing because Kodi is minimized. If Kodi doesn't hide the Taskbar, you will see it when madVR closes or pauses between clips. There might be some way to mask this by blacking-out the screen for a few seconds. Maybe that's what build 2 does.

Seeing the Taskbar would imply DSPlayer is stopping and starting between clips. This might be intentional to fix another bug.
