    Summary:

    In Mediaportal, the option to use external player is kinda minimalist.
    In XBMC, there is a nice feature using an xml file called playercorefactory.xml who allow to use internal or multiples external players depending of a range of options & rules set by the users.

    Area:

    Configuration i think. I'm not sure.



    Description:

    In XBMC, there is a nice feature using an xml file called playercorefactory.xml who allow to use internal or multiples external players depending of a range of options & rules set by the users.

    http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=External_players

    For exemple :
    - Use MPC-HD player with all Madvr stuff for SD content
    - Use an alternative player or config for x264 10 bit content
    - Use internal player for files in the "Internal" Folder

    And on my computer i do a symbolic link to duplicate data on my "Internal" folder in order to allow me to choose when i'm using xbmc for each video, if i want to play them with internal or external.
    (I would love this option -choose to use internal or external player- direclty in mediaportal too but it's probably too much work)

    The xml file looks like this :
    <playercorefactory>
    <players>
    <player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
    <filename>C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mplayerc.exe</filename>
    <args>"{1}" /fullscreen /close</args>
    <hidexbmc>false</hidexbmc>
    <hideconsole>false</hideconsole>
    <warpcursor>none</warpcursor>
    </player>
    </players>
    <rules action="prepend">
    <rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".*720p.*" player="MPC-HC"/>
    </rules>
    </playercorefactory>

    In my case, i prefer using an external player for the SD content, using Madvr and stuff.
    For HD content, internal is fine.
    I need some special config/player for x264 Hi-10p videos.
    And finaly, if my girlfriend wants to use mediaportal, i prefer that's all content she play is with the internal player (easier to use).

    PS : Sorry, for my bad english.
