BUG - KODI 17 doesnt recognize MX player as external player
#1
New kodi 17 doesnt recognize mxplayer as external player.

Older builds <17 all work with MXplayer with the playercorefactory as HOW-TO:Use_external_players_on_Android (wiki)

MXplayer hasn't changed but kodi doesnt seem to recognize it so something in kodi must have changed.

No bug just a change. You need to add the video attribute to the xml.

In oher cases bad xml without the video attribute on the player definition has been the problem.

I am following the exact xml found in HOW-TO:Use_external_players_on_Android (wiki)

Could you please post a working example xml for mxplayer?

thanks again

Copy the contents your playercorefactory to pastebin.

I'm also moving this thread as it's not a development question.
