File Playercorefactory Xml

I have an MXQ Pro S905 running on an LE 8.0.1j and would like it to play/record any TV channels on my NAS. So far, I found this playercorefactory. But, before I go ahead to install it, I noticed from my /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi.log file (excerpt below) on my MXQ Pro S905 running on an LE 8.0.1j that kodi tries to unsuccessfully load the playercorefactory (I haven't installed the playercorefactory, yet) with an error message of special://masterprofile/playercorefactory.xml does not exist. A quick search (i.e. find .kodi/ -name "*playercorefactory*" -print) through my /storage/.kodi directory yields no mentions of any playercorefactory. Does this mean LE doesn't include a playercorefactory support? If it does, can anyone please help me on how to resolve this error message? Thank you.

I created a link in /storage/.kodi/userdata/playercorefactory.xml from /usr/share/kodi/system/playercorefactory.xml and now the /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi.log shows some error messages of no such player: as shown below. Looking at the /usr/share/kodi/system/playercorefactory.xml file, it seems to point to $HOME/git/kodi-playercorefactory/bash-scripts directory for all the utilities. Does that mean I have to install those utilities from playercorefactory?

I don't really understand what you're trying to achieve. Playing and recording content to a NAS doesn't require playercorefactory changes. The only video player we embed in our distro is ffmpeg. If you're following some guide that recommends to use alternative player binaries via playercorefactory you need to choose a non-embedded distro where you can install things, e.g. Ubuntu.

I was looking at how to setup Kodi to always play certain files using an external player via dlna and just figured out how to do this the other day, so i thought Id post a how to for other folk who might be interested. I didnt see info like this anywhere in my searching so hopefully this is illuminating.

My recommendation here is VLC Media Player. VLC Media Player is a free and open-source media player program that runs on almost all platforms and play practically any kind of a video file even including m3u8 playlists, without the need of installing any additional codec packs. Beside video playback feature, it's so multifunctional that even supports to merge videos, compress videos, take video snapshot frame by frame, etc. making it one of the best Kodi external player in my opinion.

Replace 22222 with the exact file location for the external player, like C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe, make sure it includes the file extension .exe of the external video player program.

*To get the exact address of the video player, you can: visit the video player file location by right clicking on the video player's icon > open file location > click on the blank space of the address bar to highlight it > paste the full name of the media player like VLC.exe after it > copy the full address and replace 22222.

Kodi will play the bulk of today's media files but there are one or two missing. There are also media player software solutions out there that are optimized for particular media file types and therefore have better playback capabilities than Kodi. Another limitation of Kodi is the fact that it has no native Blu-ray decoder and without external help it will not play your Blu-ray movie discs. Thankfully the Kodi team have taken all of this into consideration and provide the ability to integrate external players. This guide will show you how to use external players in Kodi.

An external player is any software application that is not part of the Kodi product that can be used to launch media files. Popular external players include WinDVD, PowerDVD and VLC media player. Different media players have different pros and cons and you will find that some media players are better at handling certain file types than others.

The following steps will take you through how to use external players in Kodi. In our example we will setup an external player called Media File Player and will tell Kodi to use it to play all media files with the .mkv file extension. VLC is another common external player for Kodi. You can use a media player of your choice and for any movie file extension.

Prior to any Kodi configuration you need to ensure that your external player is installed and ready to launch media files. This is not covered within this guide because all media player installations are different. You must locate the executable file path of the software application and any command line parameters it needs to open a file. This guide is aimed at Windows 8 and above users but can easily be adapted to older versions of the operating system. [Read: 10 Best Windows Media Center Alternatives]

All external players within Kodi are configured within a single file called playercorefactory.xml. By default the playercorefactory.xml file does not exist and you need to create one to open this functionality. This file needs to be created in the Kodi userdata folder. To get there enter the following command in the Cortana box located at the bottom left of your screen and hit enter.

When the folder opens right click on a free area within the pane and click on "New Text Document". This will open a new instance of Notepad. Before you go any further click File -> Save As. Save your new file as playercorefactory.xml. Your external player configuration file has now been created and we need to populate it with the standard configuration text.

Your Notepad file will not show the color coding used above because these are not needed in the main file. This is solely for the purpose of this guide and will make the required configuration clearer.

There are two parts to the playercorefactory.xml file because Kodi uses both Player and Rule settings. Everything between and contains the settings for each player you configure. Everything between and tells Kodi which file types to apply each player to therefore keeping the rulesets separate. [Read: 5 Kodi advanced settings I always use on media centers]

Here is how you can customize the playercorefactory.xml code block listed above. To show you how to change the Kodi default player to an external player, we have used an external player called Media File Player. We will use the color coding to explain each required setting.

Green - Enter a name for your external player. This can be anything you like and must be something related to the player you are setting up. Next set Audio and Video to true if you want this player to be used for each of these media types. In our example we only want our external player to be used for video because we are happy with Kodi managing our audio files. We have set the video setting only to true.

Amber - The text shown in amber contains the path for the executable file used by your external player application. This must be exact because this tells Kodi where to go to find your external player.

Blue - In addition to the Player settings we need to tell Kodi which file types to use our external player on. In this example we have set the file extension to mkv and we have entered the player name we configured in the above Green text: Media File Player.

Finally, you must save your playercorefactory.xml file as this will apply your new settings. Launch Kodi and navigate to a movie file with the MKV file extension. When you launch the file Kodi will now call upon the external player "Media File Player" and play your movie file with it. At this point Kodi hands all player settings to the external player. Next you need to optimize your movie playback settings within your external player application because this will give you the best possible playback. Please note that you only need one playercorefactory.xml file. If you want to use multiple external players in addition to this one they can be configured within the same file. I hope that this guide showed you how to use external players in Kodi.

Firstly, you need to open your file explorer app and enable the Show Hidden Files setting. The location of the setting will vary from app-to-app, but you should find it somewhere in the Preferences or Settings menu. There may even be a toggle on the explorer's home screen.

Next, keep the explorer app open and navigate to your phone's Downloads folder. Depending on your device manufacturer, you might find this at /sdcard/download, storage/emulated, /storage/0, or something similar. You need to copy the playercorefactory.xml file that you downloaded earlier.

Tap on org.xmbc.kodi and navigate to Files > .Kodi > Userdata. Paste the XML file you copied into this folder (make sure you don't paste it into one of the sub-folders).

At the time of writing, Kodi internal player doesn't support the proprietary Dolby Vision; to fix this issue, one way is to install Just Video Player from Google Play and force Kodi to use this external player for Dolby Vision files. Please note that only Dolby Vision MKV files can be rewinded and forwarded using Just Video Player while that is not possible with Dolby Vision MP4 files. For more information refer to this post.

Now issues is:KODI is recognising the PPT files and its being showed in the KODI but when i tried to click and play, black screen appears. Seems like kodi is not picking up the Libraoffice to run the PPT file. How can i resolve this?
