Description

Hi

Having trouble with Kodi 17 external player setup trying to get all video to play through Bubbleupnp app. I have edited the playercorefactory.xml file as such;

<playercorefactory> <players> <!-- Bubbleupnp definition --> <player name="Bubbleupnp" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true"> <filename>com.bubblesoft.android.bubbleupnp</filename> <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc> <playcountminimumtime>120</playcountminimumtime> </player>

</players>

<rules action="prepend"> <rule protocols="smb" player="Bubbleupnp" /> <rule dvdimage="true" player="Bubbleupnp"/> <rule protocols="rtmp" player="Bubbleupnp"/> <rule protocols="rtsp" player="Bubbleupnp" /> <rule protocols="sop" player="Bubbleupnp" /> <rule internetstream="true" player="Bubbleupnp" />--> <rule video="true" player="Bubbleupnp"/> </rules> </playercorefactory>

When I select a video, the screen flashes the video controls briefly then stays on file selection screen. Log file as follows;

16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Player : com.bubblesoft.android.bubbleupnp 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): File : /storage/emulated/0/Download/tubemate/DayZStandAlone.mp4 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Content: 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Args : 16:56:30 T:18446744073412540720 DEBUG: Percentage is 0.000000 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Start 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Hiding Kodi window 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 DEBUG: virtual void CApplication::OnPlayBackStarted(): play state was 1, starting 0 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual BOOL CExternalPlayer::ExecuteAppAndroid(const char*, const char*): com.bubblesoft.android.bubbleupnp 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 ERROR: CXBMCApp::StartActivity - ExceptionOccurred launching com.bubblesoft.android.bubbleupnp 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual BOOL CExternalPlayer::ExecuteAppAndroid(const char*, const char*): Failure 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Stop 16:56:30 T:18446744073121024304 NOTICE: virtual void CExternalPlayer::Process(): Showing Kodi window

I have tried several versions of kodi, several different versions of playercorefactory file and also with BubbleUPnP , but all with same results. I Also tried with other players but without success, the kodi present the same error.

external player is kind of orphaned. I don't remember last time I have seen a code change for it. I consider it dead.
