Kodi DSPlayer – DirectShow Player for Windows

It is far easier for companies to offer support for projects in such a manner, where they may not be in the position to open their source. Having binary plugin options does not mean that any default configuration has to be a binary blob – it just allows for more potential options for the end user which is a good thing. I hope that one day in the future, such an interface is possible, so that whether it is madVR, Netflix, or Sling TV, we may have a shot at getting real, supported integrations in Kodi.
I don't want to destroy your dream, but binary add-ons for DRM content will also be in charge of rendering, so no MadVR for Netflix etc - not even any Kodi post processing or scalers. The entire chain from decoding to rendering will be locked.
