ET loses focus when using external player
Posted 15 May 2018 - 02:15 PM
Having the same issue, using MPC-HC to play 3D files, ET is in full screen mode, I play the movie, then press stop on Harmony remote, MPC-HC closes and ET comes back up to full screen, but it has no focus.
A workaround is to map alt-tab to a button on the remote, but that's of course inconvenient
When MPC-HC launches, ET is minimized, and when the external player closes, I see the desktop for a moment and then ET maximizes. This is on Windows 10.

Can you reproduce this with any other external player? I do external player testing with vlc and i haven't seen this happen. Thanks.
Then how about you try testing with mpc. This happens with both mpc-be and mpc-hc .
People reporting this problem are reporting it is a problem with mpc not vlc.

What command line are you using?
Sorry my response was rather abrupt. But has been frustrating. I've been a very long time user of emby - way before it was called emby. I have 2 emby servers of my own and also setup emby for a friend. I have a mix of windows 10 and windows 7 clients,
All 3 emby servers with 4 different emby clients have had 2 very long outstanding problems - they all lose focus on ET after mpc closes and they all have the mouse cursor issue being discussed here in another thread.
I've reported issues with mpc before and never had a resolution so was disappointing to find you have never actually tested it yourself. These issues with mpc and madvr and cursor problem are so annoying I changed my main home theatre watching on a 150" cinemascope screen over to Kodi. All works fine no problems, but I was also happy with ET before your change of direction focusing on an internal player and dropping madvr support.
Anyway my command line is:
