  1. Hi, I've just recently run into a problem with MB Theater - I'm not able to play any of my audio files e.g. flac or mp3. I originally set up foobar to play these and it has been working fine for months. Now when I try and play a song I get the error message: "There was an error processing the request". I've tried re-installing MB Theater but I keep getting the same problem even when I configure MPC or VLC to play them. Pulling my hair out now. These files play fine in MB Classic through foobar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Server version is Version 3.0.5366.22005 MB Theater version is 3.0.5370.26895 I've uploaded the log filetheater-63546502043.txt
  2. Is it even possible to use an external player with Kodi + Emby addon? I tried various players and means, but can't get it to work. If YOU have managed to get Kobi and Emby to work with an external player (MPC-HC / MPC-BE / DS Player), could you let me know how? Thanks heaps for the help...

    web client external player

    Server Version 3.0.5582.4 Browser Firefox Version 37.0.1 Windows 7 Professional Desktop Running Emby on specified desktop Selected a movie Selected "Vlc" as external player in Preferences->Web Client Clicked on Play->Select External Player Nothing happens. Attached is the MediaBrowserXml.config I modified the <ExternalPlayers> tag in MediaBrowserXml.config with the Vlc.exe path with the same result: <ExternalPlayers> <ExternalPlayer>C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe</ExternalPlayer> </ExternalPlayers> Thanks for your attention. MediaBrowserXml.config.txt
  4. 'Force close player on stop button' is not working with MPC-HC as external player. When I press the stop button, playback does into 'stop' and stays in that state. Yes, I'm aware it works with VLC, so please don't post a reply saying this. VLC is causing other issues so I am not using it. I'm using MPC-HC version 1.7.7 which is the current stable build.

    External Player

    Hi Guys, I have installed just Lav codecs because I found that trying to configure Shark codecs for Mediabrowser within Media Center too difficult to maintain for all types of TV & Movie files. The main issue for me is that unless you use AC3 filter, the volume is extremely low within Media Center. I want to use Windows Media Player as an external player but not sure where I find the command lines for it to shutdown Media Player once a file has played. Do you still have to input command lines for this to work? I know when I had this setup on Mediabrowser before 3 was developed there were a few commands.
  6. Hi, The ISO mounting feature of MBT seems to be not working properly on my end. I did google on this already and search the forums, tried every solution posted to no avail. Everytime I try to play the iso file, all I get is a no disc error from TMT or PowerDVD. How can I fix this? 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Info - App: Mounting I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Debug - App: Start 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Debug - App: Status ERROR: 3 Unable to open mount file "I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso". 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Error - App: Complete 3 Unable to open mount file "I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso". 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Error - App: Error mounting iso I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso Unable to start mount for I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso System.IO.IOException at MediaBrowser.IsoMounter.PismoIsoManager.<Mount>d__2.MoveNext() --- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown --- at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.ThrowForNonSuccess(Task task) at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.TaskAwaiter.HandleNonSuccessAndDebuggerNotification(Task task) at MediaBrowser.Theater.Presentation.Playback.GenericExternalPlayer.<GetIsoMount>d__5.MoveNext() 2014-09-29 22:43:55.3211 Info - App: C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD14\PDVDLP.exe "I:\ServerFolders\Videos\3D\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011)\Captain America - The First Avenger (2011).iso" /PLAY Karl

    Resume inoperative

    I'm using WMC with MPC-HC as an external player. All my media is MKV rips (not ISO). It seems that "most" of my movies don't have the resume option after I press "stop" and the movie backs out to the mediabrowser screen. Basically if I press "stop" then I have to start the movie all over again. I'm not sure if this is related (I have to do more troubleshooting) but last night I was watching a movie and I pressed stop... came back about 10 minutes later and noticed that there was no resume and that the movie had a red check mark on it (showing that it was completed?) but I had only watched about 1/4 of the movie. I went into the settings for MBC and unchecked all the boxes under "indicators". This did not get rid of the red check mark. How do I get rid of the red check mark (thinking that it will allow resume once I do).
  8. MBC with MPC-HC as external player. Enter a film with a trailer, trailer plays as background. Press play, and movie starts in external player but the trailer continues to play in the background MBC. Is there any way to get MBC to send a stop command to stop playing the trailer before it sends the play command to mpc-hc? Or is there another way around this?
  9. Is there a way to not have trailers (either from the channel folder or before a movie in cinema mode) to not launch an external player (mpc-hc)? My current setup uses the external player feature in MBC for all my movies (which are in .mp4 format), and now it seems the Internet trailers are streaming in .mp4. So the external player loads the stream and plays it. This process takes a little while (about 30 seconds or so) for every streaming trailer, so it would be nice if the trailers could just be played by the internal player and not trigger the external one to fire up. I was looking in the server to see if there is a way for me to change the .mp4 extension of the trailers, but since I have them streaming I do not think I can. Hope that someone can help. Thank You
  10. Is there a way or is it possible to exclude a specific folder from an external player? Currently I have been using MPC-HC through MBC to play all my movie content (currently most of my movies are in .MP4 format). Recently when I go to watch a trailer through the trailers channel in MBC it plays with the external player, seems the trailers are in .MP4 format. The trailers play fine it just takes a bit for the external player to load and I would prefer it to just play the trailers through the WMC internal player. So that is why I am asking if there is a way to exclude an entire folder(or channel for that matter) from an external player? Thank You for any help.
  11. Hi all, I have been working on a configuration that allows the playback of DVD, BD, and 3D all from mkv containers and getting the best PQ for the big screen theater while having the best experience around the home.... anyway I think I am very close but have one last issue I need help with. I did search and couldn't find anything, so hope one of you already knows the answer or can share your own solution... I need to call a batch file at the same time an external player is used, just for 3D playback of mkv rips. It sounds like this can be done with XBMC so looking to see how we would create that in an MB3 environment. The basic setup is this.. MBC using MPC-HC with MadVR for DVD and BD (madvr handles the refresh rate switching) MBC using stereoscopic player for 3D Blu-ray MKV rips (also does its own refresh rate switching) I'm using NVidia cards so am dealing with the bug/feature that they do not playback frame-packing 3D correctly without the 3DTV add-on, the batch file is needed to activate NVidia 3D before Stereoscopic player launches and then deactivates it when the player closes and returned to WMC/MBC Here is how is works in XBMC which another explained to me: You can turn NVidia's 3D function on and off with nvstlink.exe I made a batch file called PlayStereo.bat Code: @echo off "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstlink.exe" /enable Start "C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey" AutoHotkey.exe Set pth=%1 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Stereoscopic Player\StereoPlayer.exe" %pth% -fss -nl -ol:NVIDIA -termend "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvstlink.exe" /disable Taskkill /IM AutoHotkey.exe /F You don't need the lines about AutoHotkey. I just use it to write keyboard shortcuts for Stereoscopic Player. This file turns Nvidia 3D on before it opens Stereoscopic Player in full screen, and it turns Nvidia 3D off after Stereoscopic Player is terminated (or exits full screen). I then use XBMC's playercorefactory file to call PlayStereo.bat every time I need it to play 3D. I don't know how MB works, but I'm sure you'll figure it out from here. SO... any ideas or suggestions on how we can do this? Many thanks,

    PowerDVD as external player?

    Hey, I configured PowerDVD als external player. I want it to play BD & DVD saved as .iso files. I choosed "Mount" as "Iso support" option and just {PATH} as "Path". The result is: PowerDVD starts but does nothing. It neither shows any available movies (like it does when there's a iso mounted through Win8 or DaemonTools). I also can't find any Isos mounted in Windows Explorer (don't know if I should). Is this just not fully implemented or am I doing something wrong at this point? Thanks for your help!
