Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
MPC-BE is a 'player', just like PDVD is a 'player'. MPC-BE is a free player. It's in the link I provided. It does not do things that PDVD can, a paid player. However, MPC-BE has a feature PDVD does not. The ability to completely close itself when playback has ended. Those that have mapped alt+f4 to their remote (or simply doing the same direct from a keyboard) may find this of little use since that key combo closes anything in focus for something such as PDVD that do not quit on their own.

I don't really know why that user wrote alt+f4 is dangerous? It's been a common windows key combo for ever. I suppose you could consider it dangerous for a couple reasons: If you accidently pressed the key combo or mapped key of it, it might close something you didn't want to close. Like that 16 hour long book passage you've been working on and oops you quit Microsoft Word without auto saving and prompt saving when you would have closed it manually. (not that this applies to our HTPC type usage here) but what if your multi all in one machine had it opened in the background and you decided to use Kodi for a breather and started pressing alt+f4 like a madman when finished and lost all your work. Or the cat laid down on the key(s). You get the idea. Lastly, as I wrote, you don't want to just alt+f4 (KILL) any program. You want it to shutdown eloquently as it was designed. Not allowing that by simply killing it would be dangerous. So, stop, exit, quit, etc your program (MPC-BE or PDVD) and then kill it. No harm will be done to an idle splash or GUI screen.

I don't know if the MCERemote add- on can map alt+f4? It would be interesting to know. If it can, it would open up a lot of convenience for users that do not have learning remotes. I see no reason not to give it a try and danger should be the least of concerns imo. If you decide to try it, please let us know the results and your opinion of them and TIA.
