Hi, I have some issues with mediaportal configured with kmplayer as external player. If I play a video with kmplayer in windows (with mediaportal closed) everything is fine, sound, video and fullscreen mode, with all renders. But if I play a .mkv with mediaportal and it opens kmplayer, it says that someone else is using overlay mixer and I have to select another video renderer, even if I have kmplayer render set to another one :confused:. Then, it doesn´t matter which one I choose, the video doesn´t play colours well, or if it does, when I select fullscreen mode, the video doesn´t change its size. This ONLY happens when I have video info in video database. If I reset database, everything works fine :mad:. If I put only one movie in database (manual or from any script in MP) the error appears. If I use another external player, like MPC-HC, HTPC crashes. If I choose to use internal player, same error, HTPC hangs up. So, anyone can help? I´m near to madness...

Try this: Open MP Configuration, go to videos -tab general and untick mark every already watched file

Else, post logs

Ok, I´ll search for logs, because that option isn´t ticked. Thanks for your answer.
