Feature Request - Playback of two video streams at the same time for PiP and more?
#16
I am still working on transforming VideoPlayer into a more flexible architecture that eventually allow PiP. Unfortunately there is a lot of whining from others who are clueless what architecture means and are reluctant to change. A good example is this thread: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=277344&page=9

I would love to see Kodi be able to show my Desktop or other running Applications in the PiP window. Also the ability of resizing and changing the position would be great too.

Well I have seen that thread and it is to say the least nasty and unconstructive....and you do not really worth such nasty comments with all the work you have done so far...

Yet again, remember people are working on these forums in a transactional way, meaning in little bits and pieces, it is easy not lose the forest and look at only the tree this way....

How about agreeing with other developers the big picture, and write a nice blog on the upcoming architectural change with some nice diagrams in it and list the benefits as well as some of the functionalities that will be affected and how? That would make them understand I think...

Best regards

What about this. Only an idea.

you use videoplayer as standard one and use MPlayer for pip.
preconfige in settings on witch you want to use the MPLAYER for example DVBInput=1

i´m no coder but that sounds possible for me

PiP would be such an excellent addition to Kodi. The way I am set up now, I have a dual monitor system. and will run Kodi separately on both monitors (two separate instances). I want to connect a third monitor at some point in the future. I have scripts so my remote can control the volumes of each monitor via Pulseaudio. Ideally, a 65-80" 4k monitor with 8 PiPs would be amazing! ...sorry, I was dreaming a bit haha.
