Problems with Mediaportal and External Player (1 Viewer)


Portal Pro
May 5, 2008
MediaPortal Version: SVN 5 april 2009
MediaPortal Skin: StreamedMP (latest)
Windows Version: VISTA SP1
MPEG2 Video Codec: External
MPEG2 Audio Codec: External
h.264 Video Codec: External

I have some (small) issues with all versions of mediaportal to date regaring external player and a weird Mplayer OSD "issue" since the latest SVN.

1: External player works, everything plays fine, but when I close a mediafile, it closes mpc-hc as it should, but in stead of switching back to mediaportal, sometimes the mediafile just restarts like I clicked "ok" again (which I didn't of course). Seems it switch back to mediaportal and immidiatly plays again. With some fast clicking on "back" after stop, I can prevent it, but it's very nasty and frustrating.

It doesn't happen with everything though, in the TVseries plugin, it switches back perfectly, but I get an internal error regarding that it can't play the file, and it shows some codec stuff. I can just press ok and everything is fine, so this isn't a problem (just a bit ugly :) )

2: I noticed blue OSD like stuff as overlay in MPC-HC, which shows things like "PLAY" and "PAUSE". I think its great, it was exactly what I was looking for. But I think it messes with the speed in MPC-HC. I noticed some speed issues (like EVR is messed up) but DXVA is still working, since the CPU speed isl ike 9%. So I'm sure it has something to do with this overlay stuff. I wonder where I can turn it off?

Hope you guys can help me!!
