Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows
Been following this and it seems kind of a typical problem in open source software development. You have people who are unhappy with features or development pace and so fork the project. Of course there is going to be some defensiveness about the the main project. The viability of the fork depends on the developer base supporting it. In this case it was a one man show. That simply isn't sustainable, especially as the dev was working hard to keep the fork aligned with mainline.

The dsplayer fork is on github. ISTM the reasonable approach is to go back to Kodi 11.2 as the starting point and maintain the fork from there. But that requires devs who are interested in this.
