In case you had a chance to test this, did you notice any noteworthy improvement?

Thank you! I did claim the free copy - however, the license expiration shows up as 2/10/19. Unless they are using DD/MM/YY, seems to be about 6 months instead of an year. Either way, good find!

I'm encountering a strange issue with Kodi External Player behavior all of a sudden. PDVD is launching just fine for the specified media formats, however, DVDFab refuses to launch no matter what! Whether using rules, or using the 'Play Using -->' menu; all that happens is a notification bar pops up on top of Kodi stating "External player active" with an "Ok" button to close it, but DVDFab does not launch.

I had stripped down the BAT file & PLAYERCOREFACTORY file to my needs, and it did work in the past.

playercorefactory.xml

<playercorefactory>
<players>
<player name="PowerDVD" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Users\b3lial\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata\PDVD.bat</filename>
<playcountminimumtime>1140</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
<player name="DVDFab" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Player 5\DVDFab Player 5.exe</filename>
<playcountminimumtime>1140</playcountminimumtime>
</player>
</players>
<rules action="prepend">
<rule filename=".*4K.*" player="DVDFab"/>
<rule filetypes="iso|bdmv|mpls|m2ts" player="PowerDVD"/>
</rules>
</playercorefactory>

PDVD.bat
Code:

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

:playbdmv
set pth=%1
set pth=%pth:BDMV\MovieObject.bdmv=%
set pth=%pth:BDMV\index.bdmv=%
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD18\PowerDVD.exe" %pth% exit
exit

:playiso
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 %1
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD18\PowerDVD.exe" D:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive\VCDMount.exe" /d=0 /u
exit

I've double checked all the paths - everything seems good. Just wondering if something changed with Kodi? I do believe I updated recently to Leia Alpha 2.

Not sure what's going on all of a sudden.
