    Finally the most awaited Kodi 18 Leia is here and is available on the Official Website of Kodi. Kodi Leia is expected to come up with a lot of attractive features that will make Kodi users very happy. Just found some useful tips on https://www.firesticktricks.com/kodi-18-leia.html . Though keep in mind Kodi 18 is still under testing and there might be some bugs or problems in the software, but the users can still download it at their risks

    Someone can help, maybe finding the error in the compile text of playercorefactory.xml

    I can't use kodi 18 with zidooplayer as external player

    Code:
    <playercorefactory>
        <players>
            <player name="ZidooPlayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
                <filename>com.android.gallery3d</filename>
                <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
                <playcountminimumtime>120</playcountminimumtime>
            </player>
    
            
        <rules action="prepend">
            <rule protocols="smb" player="ZidooPlayer" />
            <rule dvdimage="true" player="ZidooPlayer"/>
            <rule protocols="rtmp" player="ZidooPlayer"/>
            <rule protocols="rtsp" player="ZidooPlayer" />
                    <rule protocols="sop" player="ZidooPlayer" />
            <rule internetstream="true" player="ZidooPlayer" />
            <rule video="true" player="ZidooPlayer"/>
        </rules>
    </playercorefactory>

    I would like to run kodi 18.1 with external player activated, due to aeon mq8, but with playercorefactory.xml
    its not working.
    Will you release kodi 18.1 or must we wait for zidoo?

    I'm releasing just nightly builds. I think it's better to wait for Zidoo as they release ZDMC source code i'll then merge it to my repo and continue to build nightly builds once a month.

    You don't need

    Code:
    <player name="ZidooPlayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
                <filename>com.android.gallery3d</filename>
                <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
                <playcountminimumtime>120</playcountminimumtime>
            </player>
    As ZidooPlayer already loaded by system. So if you want to play all videos with ZidooPlayer just use rules section for that. In my builds if you want to start playing with ZidooPlayer you can use "Play with" context menu of KODI and then select ZidooPlayer.

    Currently these are very unstable builds, and lacking resolution detection and frame rate switching for internal player. I'm currently waiting for Zidoo to release ZDMC based on KODI 18 so I can merge their code and start building nightly releases again.
     
  13. This is what i used to get mine working correctly, I took it from the ZDMC version.

    it would be perfect but for me it doesn"t function. Kodi shows me that external player is running, but really doesn"t start anything. however i need to try to set also internet stream with zidoo player. I was looking for in zdmc 17.6.1 where i can set this, but every folder (especially system where I thing there is the configuration) are empty

    Also internet stream from pvr clients?
     
  16. Made a new playercorefactory.xml after some testing. I don't play radio or play DVD images so i don't know if this would work correctly. I just wanted internet streams to play from kodi default player and all other videos to use Zidoo player, which is working for me.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <playercorefactory>
    <rules name="system rules">

    <rule protocols="smb" player="ZidooPlayer" />
    <rule dvdimage="true" player="VideoPlayer"/>
    <rule protocols="rtmp" player="VideoPlayer"/>
    <rule protocols="rtsp" player="VideoPlayer" />
    <rule protocols="sop" player="VideoPlayer" />

    <!-- Internet streams -->
    <rule internetstream="true" player="VideoPlayer" />

    <!-- Default for anything else not listed -->
    <rule video="true" player="ZidooPlayer"/>

    </rules>
    </playercorefactory>

    So, if I understand correctly, until KODI 18 is merged into the latest Zidoo release for the Z9S, playback of 3D ISOs is broken?

    Sorry to side track this thread. I have has a Z9S for approx 18 months, everything worked fine until last week, when I open kodi it closes itself after 30 seconds. I have tried to install kodi from the kodi site and also updated the X9S to the latest firmware, I even tried a factory reset, all have failed to solve the issue. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this or is it a kodi fault? I should add that ZDMC is working fine.
