Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
UHD HDR with full menus is working proper using DVDFab Media Player 3 as are most other files.  I have not tried them all.  I have not tried v.5.  I've tested a few iso's and mkv's.  HDR turns on and off automatically as expected.   The player will open Full Screen even if you last closed it windowed.  Subtitles are selectable and working too.  I also tried an external.srt and it appeared and worked as intended which was a pleasant surprise.  Suggest you turn the font down to 16.  All audios are also working well.  The picture is very good.  In general it appears to be working quite well.  Imo, it is similar to PowerDVD although it DOES NOT require any special hardware.  My GTX 960 4GB appears more than sufficient and overall it's pleasing to playback with full menus.  There are also settings to skip warnings and/or go directly to main menu playback automatically.  As usual, titles will be marked 'Watched' after using any external player including this one.

3D frame packed MVC is not working for me.  I understand it may be a new option in v.5.  SBS.mkv is working and 3D mode auto switches on/off.  I will not be using DVDFab Player v.3 for 3D.  Those that desire it can request code if they wish.

I use the same mapped remote control keys for all the various players.  Most are harmonious with a few special keys for special players.  DVDFab Player keys are different than what I currently have programmed so virtually nothing works unless using a keyboard with their hotkeys.  I may rearrange things in the near future to harmonize at least some of the basics.  DVDFab Player used to offer keymap changes but sadly does not in the v.3 I'm testing.  This may not be true for v.5?

Automatic Adjust Refresh Rate is also not working so I adjusted their code so it does and it appears to be working flawlessly.  I changed:

C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Media Player 3\system\settings\settings.xml using notepad++ and must be saved after changing by accepting admin mode and then saving again.

Line 404 should be at 'level' 2.
Change line 405 to <default>2</default> <!-- ADJUST_REFRESHRATE_ON_STARTSTOP -->

Add this to playercorefactory.xml.  It will not be default without making other changes to existing code but it will be selectable in the C (Context Menu) when you select 'Play Using':

<player name="DVDFab" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
       <filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Media Player 3\FabPlayer.exe</filename>
       <playcountminimumtime>1140</playcountminimumtime>
     </player>
