    is it possible to use the MP TV Client with a different player like windows media player or powerdvd player? I would prefer not to install too much software in my (small) pc.

    If yes: what would be the right configuration? I simply linked the wmp into the mptv client but the wmp sayed "no valid source"

    It is certainly possible, I believe you simply need to launch a compatible program by changing the target program in the MPC client. Of course it depends on what you want to use as the target program as to whether it is acceptable or now. What are you trying to use?

    But VLC is a very compact program, which can be used for practically every video/audio format. So you might want to consider using it over any other choice.

    I don't care if it is compact. It just don't play every format. So I want to use KMPlayer.
    Yes, I changed the target program in the MPC client. But when it launches it says "no valid source".
