Any thoughts on changing the coding that allowa external players?

I ask because I am going to test the newest Opera build that has built in VPN. My VPN-enabled KODI is a bit of a kludge and not at all elegant.

I want to make sure that anything I build for Jarvis will be compatible with v17 onward.

Every VideoPlayer related code you build for Jarvis is very likely to break with v17 onward.

Hi FernetMenta,

Just reread the very first post in this thread and was wondering what the "current" state actually is now, i.e. ~6 months later? Would you mind sharing what the team has achieved in the meantime and how far away you are from your actual goal? Just curious...

Thanks and best,

This is a transformation of existing components and we need to take care not to break existing things. At least not when it can be avoided. In regard to function and stability v17 is already a big step forward.
In regard to what I have written in post #1 of this thread there is still a long way to go. Splitting the render from the main thread is the most important next milestone: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=240870
