    Hi,

    Due to being open source I took liberty to compile fresh apk by patching https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc with changes related to opening external ZidooPlayer taken from https://github.com/zidootech/ZDMC.
    I didn't changed logos, application name, application package "org.xbmc.kodi", etc. So if you have already installed Kodi (not ZDMC) it will be overridden.

    I don't know if anyone is interested in getting latest KODI 18 with integrated external player (ZidooPlayer) - you have option to enable it by default as in ZDMC, without need of XMBCWrapper app but as being open source I'm sharing it here.

    This is not official app from Zidoo and if stuff thinks this is not good idea, please remove this thread.

    This I do in my spare time, so I won't fix bugs or anything, I'll just compile fresh copy taken from KODI git repo now and then and share it if anyone is interested.

    @Edit - Added KODI Krypton 17.3 final build. Source taken from https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc (tag 17.3-Krypton). This and all future builds will be added here: https://github.com/gorpet/kodi-zdmc/releases

    @Edit (17/08/2017) - Updated code with changes from: https://github.com/zidootech/ZDMC/tree/zdmc-x9s-17.3, added new Leia build: https://github.com/gorpet/kodi-zdmc/releases

    Kind regards,

    zidoo only, as it calls internal Zidoo player 'com.android.gallery3d'.

    if have not testet it yet, but also big THANKS from me!
    do you think its also possible for you, to implement that powermangment-settings from ZDMC16,1?
    i mean the seetings under: system/power-saving. there you can choose in ZDMC16,1 minimize, shutdown and standby.

    Hello cobric, Hello all,

    Can you tell me where is the option to use the zidoo player ?

    I activated the external player option but it's still the kodi player when I watch a movie.

    thanks in advance

    Hi !

    great job!

    Just one question. Why did not you try Kodi 17.3 ? It's a final release and more stable than Kodi 18 .

    With Kodi 17.3, you can make people happy.... :)

    Great job again !!!
    You have got a good idea ;)

    Hi OlivierQC,

    as far as i know, you must first install this wrapper: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hu.xmister.xbmcwrapper&hl=de
    and configure it. then you must activate the external player in kodi.
    the wrapper should pop the up and ask you, wich player you want to use for playback.
    if you choose then the google-player it should use the zidoo-mediaplayer.
    in the case of useing windows cifs, you must only give in username and pw and not change anything else.
    hope this helps you a little bit.

    Hi Olivier ;)
    It's strange ?
    It's good for me. I activated the Ext Player in the video option and it's work great.

    Hi,

    No, this works without wrapper app.

    Same here, it works (opens in external Zidoo player) just by checking that option.

    I myself like to use latest available version so I compile from git. I'll compile KODI 17.3 for anyone who likes to be on stable versions and post it here.

    Also you can override default player in playercorefactory.xml by adding <rule video="true" player="ZidooPlayer"/> to the end of rule list: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Use_external_players_on_Android

    Thank you so much !!!
    This is exactly what I was hoping to get from Zidoo.
    I also prefer to go with a stable version, so will wait for your 17.3.

    A question: I have an AEON skin and quite a lot of customization to it - will it all get wiped out every time I update my Kodi?

    Hi,

    No settings will stay, the same thing if you update KODI offical app.
