Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
NVidia drivers are for NVidia GPU's. NUC uses Intel GPU and their drivers. Intel (hard to believe) by design or by choice is not compatible with frame packed 3D MVC unless you are using 1080p HDMI 1.4 port connected to your AVR or display. If you are using modern 4k hardware and desire to enjoy the 4k resolution, you will need to output using HDMI 2.0 ports. So with an NUC, you will have to make a choice of 3D or 4k but not both. I suppose you could swap ports and change settings within Windows, Intel GPU settings and Kodi depending on which you are viewing at the time. Most opt to leave everything at 1080p but then you are hardly enjoying 4k upscale with 3D 1080p to 2160p or upscale of 2D either.

PowerDVD has internal mounted for the last couple of versions. It is VERY slow to mount. This has it's advantages. If you are drive letter starved, the virtual ROM only seizes a drive letter while PDVD is open and using it. Once PDVD is closed, the drive letter is completely released available for anything else to acquire it. Example: You have 10 local HDD's. You are using 10 drive letters. You start PDVD and it mounts an iso. It will auto choose the next available drive letter after the 10 already in use so you are presently using 11 drive letters. You quit PDVD, it unmounts and you are back to using 10 drive letters. You turn on your 16 external drives to back up a title or something. You are now using all 26 drive letters. If you attempt to use another drive letter by starting an iso mount with PDVD or something, nothing will happen. You are out of drive letters.

On the flip side, if you use VCD, it will always use a drive letter. It will always be in use. You will have one less drive letter to put to use elsewhere. Most importantly, if you mount an iso to VCD, it will never release the mount automatically or manually (right click eject does nothing). So you cannot work with the mounted file. It is permanently in use unless you reboot. You could however mount a different iso in it's place but then that one becomes locked in. Using VCD does have it's advantages though. It mounts very quick. It also allows one very fundamental advantage and VCD is required as part of the setup. To use another external .exe program as part of the launch like AnyDVD. This is why we need to use a .bat with the playercorefactory. One could auto start AnyDVD with Windows (eliminating the need to auto launch only when needed) and then only a simple playercorefactory is needed and not with the .bat file fwiw.

These are the scripts I am presently using for NVidia:

    <player name="PowerDVD17" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
      <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
<rules action="prepend">
    <rule filetypes="iso|bdmv|mpls|m2ts" player="PowerDVD17"/>
    <rule filename=".*HDR10.*|.*HDR.*|.*hdr.*|.3D.*|.*.3D.iso|3D.*" player="PowerDVD17"/>

Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:iso=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO playiso) ELSE (goto next)

Set file=%1
Set dummy=%file:mpls=%
IF NOT %dummy% == %file% (GOTO plaympls) ELSE (goto playbdmv)

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 %1
timeout /t 2
"C:\Program Files (x86)\RedFox\AnyDVD\AnyDVD.exe"
timeout /t 10
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD17\PowerDVD.exe" A:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 /u
GOTO end

set pth=%1
set pth=%pth:~1,-25%
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD17\PowerDVD.exe" "%pth%" exit
GOTO end

set pth=%1
set pth=%pth:BDMV\MovieObject.bdmv=%
set pth=%pth:BDMV\index.bdmv=%
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD17\PowerDVD.exe" %pth% exit
GOTO end
