Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows
It can be multiple windows devs every day ... but infrastructure cleanup and fixing everyday's bugs is not as nice a cherry-picking and providing new features for a small percentage of users while letting the architecture and given implementations decay - that's already known ...

You have absolutely and 100% no clue when you are talking about source code ... merging thousands line of codes - not documented - not reviewed - and now (without a single other person - that can pick it up) - long year users of this code whine: It is dead now, nobody can maintain it anymore - so? Kodi would have ended with an unmaintainable huge chunk of code ... and you (!) would be the first person writing me an email with: feature x,y is broken - I think team kodi should fix that asap ...

As your post really makes me angry: It is sad that the top contributor of dsplayer left - but he left cause it took far too much of his time - nobody seemed to have helped him to a degree that he could have managed it. And now - my dear user - step up, learn c++ coding and make sure the next time - that you help as much as you can that your favorite software will be maintained and is still working next year and the year after next year.

There are thousands of windows bugs on our trac, low hanging fruits perhaps easy to fix .... but nobody does that ... the whole world is always talking about feature, feature, feature, feature ... without someone that can maintain those features over time - in a team - you will loose everything the very moment the key contributor leaves ...
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
