This video shows my problem:

http://megaswf.com/view/161c89e2a9516e02...228e1.html

1st movie is in AVI form - defaults to external player
2nd movie is in DVD form (DVD\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO) - defaults to internal player

I've tried on multiple computer systems, this is always what happens, DVDs default to the internal player, although externalplayer is set as default in the advancedsettings.xml.

can you confirm that if you manually select "play with" that the DVD plays with the externalplayer ?

Do you guys use corecodec (haali splitter) for mkvs and ffdshow for pretty much everything else?

I'm drowning in an sea of configurable options right now with zoomplayer and all of the codecs.

@Jester

I do still have the same focus problems with VLC on Vista, no matter which config I use. Even if the --forceontop option in VLC is set, XBMC (fullscreen) gains focus with the mousepointer set "free" (windows pointer, not XBMC pointer)
After Ctrl-alt-del followed by a esc, VLC plays fullscreen. Alt-tab has no effect.

As VLC is one of the most used players in the world, Jester, would you please start testing with it also?

Thanks

DVDPLAYER is still the default for DVD/DVD files/DVD Image (and also for some streams like mms & rstp) even when that options is set.

Thanks for all of your hard work on this stuff guys!

I'm not certain if this is related but I'll post it here first and, failing that, will create a new topic at a later date.

I'm still experiencing an issue when attempting to play a DVD using the menu link to DVD (not sure if adding source DVD in Videos or Movies will fix this).

I've attached a small excerpt from the logs HERE

Any light that someone could shed on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again guys!

That's a sensible approach.

What do you gain by using VLC instead of DVDplayer? Honest question. You can't use Reclock, you can't use CoreAVC. Or can you?

yes, but I was under the impression that any type of video media would (or, at least, should) play externally, I haven't read anything that says otherwise.

Well you are incorrect because the external players do not have our internal filesystem to handle stuff like dvd.iso multipart stacking or playing inside rar archives

Zoom works perfectly (look for my posts in the previous pages). I haven't tried MPC-HC yet.

Hi Guys,
i have a problem concerning the external Player option with the 8.10 release.
I want do integrate Media Player Classic. So i created the file correctly. But nothing is shown. DVDPlayer automaticly starts. In the context Menu i cant change to external player.

So then i installed XBMCSetup-Rev17097-ext.exe. Created the file and so on. And it works! But with this release i cant search via imdb or something like that for file informations. It just downloads no cover, text or something else.

Is there an option to run an external Player on the public 8.10 release?

here is my advancedsettings.xml:
[HTML]<advancedsettings>
<video>
<defaultplayer>externalplayer</defaultplayer>
</video>
<externalplayer>
<filename>C:\Program Files (x86)\Codecs\Media Player Classic.exe</filename>
<args>/fullscreen</args>
<forceontop>true</forceontop>
<hideconsole>true</hideconsole>
<hidecursor>false</hidecursor>
</externalplayer>
<videolibrary>
<hideallitems>true</hideallitems>
<cleanonupdate>true</cleanonupdate>
</videolibrary>
</advancedsettings>[/HTML]
