In your listed playercorefactory, what would go to he DSPlayer? Very new to this, and only see DVDPlayer and MPC-HC listed.

DSPlayer for all video, but...
DVDPlayer for streaming
MPC-HC for DVDs (as support is far superior to DSPlayer's, where I often get broken menus, laggy overlay or non-anamorphic video)
VLC for Blu-rays (as it has the best menu support and I do not need madVR's upscaling for stuff that is already 1080p)

Getting DSPlayer and DVDPlayer sorted is easy. I've tried fiddling with playercorefactory but I cannot get VLC or MPC-HC to be shown as external players through the "Play Using" context menu option, when using Kodi DSPlayer. Does the way DSPlayer is coded not allow external players to be added?

This is my entire playercorefactory.xml which ALL works perfectly in DSPlayer Kodi RC3:


        <player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
             <filename>C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\MPC-HC.exe</filename>
             <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
        <rules action="prepend">
        <rule filetypes="mkv|avi|divx|ogm|mp4|mov|m4v|flv|m2v|mpeg|mpg|mts|m2ts|vob|bdmv" player="MPC-HC">
        <rule protocols="http|https" player="MPC-HC"/>
        <rule protocols="daap|rtv|rtsp|rtmp|rtmpe|rtsp|mms|rtp|pvr" player="DVDPlayer"/>

        <player name="VLC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
             <filename>C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe</filename>
             <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>

        <player name="Windows Media Player" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
             <filename>C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe</filename>
             <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>


Ive just tested all this in the last 30 mins so its 100% working, you could modify if further but i really just use MPC-HC the others are there just because they are really Smile but work perfectly.

Obviously you may need to change the paths but otherwise should be golden.
