    Thanks cobric :)

    I use my zidoo in 2160p60, and I had to set the parameter SET GUI resolution limit = unlimited, otherwise I had a black screen and sound only.

    Everythings works properly :
    Atmos/DTS X
    ISO 3D
    1080p BDMV

    For information:
    About UHD movies (BDMV), there is an error message if I select the movie poster, I have to find the .m2ts in the BDMV folder, the "problem" is only with UHD film. ( there is not this problem with zdmc)

    Thanks again for your great job :)

    Hi cobric,
    Job well done, thanks!
    One thing I've noticed is that the regular pvr addons seem to have vanished in this build, and no way to install one?

    Hi OlivierQC,
    I took code from ZDMC from here https://github.com/zidootech/ZDMC, and this is for ZDMC 16 not latest beta 17.1, so I don't know if they changed something there. If Zidoo publish sources for ZDMC beta 17.1 I can take that code and merge it to KODI.

    Hello cobric,

    About the UHD movie, it does not matter, it was just for information :)

    about the sources for ZDMC beta 17.1:
    if they read your thread, we may have an answer from them :)

    I have pasted the link of your thread on my discussion board on homecinema.fr forum

    see you

    With the External player, no problem with 25p ! 25p is 25p
    If you use the ZDMC player, it's normal.25p is 50p. Or create a "Advancesetting" files, but i think we need to root the box for instal the files. I'm not sure but i think !
    Sorry for my bad english, i'm tired

    Have installed this and looks great but for the life of me I cant figure out how to make it use the external player i.e zidoo media center as this is the only player that seems to play everything

    Something I have notices is that if you have Play Next Video Automatically kodie will use the Defult play not the external player even if the External Player is eneabled.

    Exactly ! With this option enabled (Play Next Video Automatically), it's the Kodi Player to run and not the Ext.Player.
    I don't know why ??

    Wow cobric!

    very nice! i'm looking for this option (to play videos with the zidoo player from kodi without rooting the device) on my zidoo x9s since months.

    Please can you produce the same option in kodi krypton 17.3?

    thank you very much

    Thanks - For some reason I do not have the Play video with external player option, the menu starts with Play next video automatically? How can I get this option to display?

    Getting very confused as my menu options dont exactly look like yours and if I untick the option in line 4 from your screenshot (Play next video automatically) nothing happens and no extra options appear?

    Be sure you had the settings level in "expert" (bottom left corner)
    P.S. Sorry i didn't realize your capture were different from the other.
    You are in the player settigns, the other were in the system settings...
    (or i think so...)

    Settings leve is expert but I just do not see that screen layout anywhere under system settings, there is nowhere with the title Video-Settings!
    When I go to System/Settings I see sub menus for player,media,pvr&live tv, add ons,services,interface and system
    Player give me the menu in my screenshot and system gives me the options display,audio,input, internet access,power saving,add on and logging

    Could somebody tell me the exact menu route to take though I have tried them all....
