Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows

Jeez... aracnoz was in the devs section asking about the new Video Player development. He wanted to *understand* how to best fit in what you had in mind, he was willing to adapt, he said as much *and* there was a previous reply by FernetMenta that implied a future where binary addons would be doable. If you don't understand the bad attitude displayed in that discussion by more than one member of Team Kodi, I really don't know what to add. Do you think everything was handled properly? Do you think that the tone of the answers was the right one for somebody approaching the team for working on something?

You say that he left because he was overloaded, but it's there to see that he left because of the reception to his questions.

anyway, I can understand your points but honestly I only see the alot of "no" "never" "it's useless and without advantages"

so maybe it's not this time Smile
And yet you think he left because he was tired? It's curious that everybody else has understood that the reason was the reception he got when he tried approaching you (Team Kodi). We must all be wrong, surely.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
