    Hi all,



    in the current version 1.2.0.0 i use an external player (Media Player Clasic Home Cinema) for playing my video files. I Have configured it in the Media Player Configuration-Tool with the following arguments:

    Path/Filename: C:\Program Files (x86)\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mpc-hc.exe
    Parameters: %filename% /play /close /fullscreen

    Everything works fine for wmv and mpg files.

    Bug1: if i start ".ts" - files (tv-recordings for example), the external player is not launched. Instead, mediaportal launches the native mediaportal-player for them

    Bug 2: if i start ".dvr-ms" - files, i get the following error message:
    Abspielen nicht möglich. (cant play)
    Video Codec: MPEG VIDEO VERSION 2
    Audio Codec: MPEG AUDIO VERSION 1 LAYER

    The external player is not launched, this error is displayed by mediaportal.
    These errors are reproducable, you can try it on your own mediaportal-configuration.

    Thanks,

    Mads

    It's not a bug it's a coded feature and *.ts (also rtsp: http: https: mms: ) files will not play from external player.

    g_player.cs line 1293
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. if (!Util.Utils.IsAVStream(strFile) && Util.Utils.IsVideo(strFile))
    3. {
    4.    if (!Util.Utils.IsRTSP(strFile) && extension != ".ts") // do not play recorded tv with external player
    5.   {
    6.      External play handling code .......
    7.   }
    8. }

    Thank you for your response.

    But what is the problem with ".dvr-ms" - files?

    Hi guys, I'll move this thread to MP 1.2 RC sub-forum, because it's obviously not a MP2 issue.

    Cheers.

    Smeulf.
