Sorry I haven't gotten back to you regarding this, I haven't tried it yet. The reason I haven't tried it yet is because I have Blu-ray playback within XBMC right now (that includes full use of dts HD Master and Dolby truHD sound). I'm not sure how it's working, or if it even should be working, but I don't need PowerDVD12 to watch Blu-ray's, as I am watching them from right in XBMC.
Did we (and by we I mean mostly you) stumble onto something that was previously thought to be impossible? If you believe so then when I get home from work later tonight why don't I copy/paste my playercorefactory.xml codes and my .bat file codes so we can see exactly what's going on here. If this is something others are doing already then we'll consider my issues/problems getting this to work solved, as I'd much rather use XBMC as my player from all of my video sources instead of XBMC for 1 source and PowerDVD12 as my blu-ray player source.
Let me know what your thoughts on this are (as well as anyone else who wants to jump in and add anything).
Oh, we knew that XBMC can playback blu-ray disc directly on BD-ROM with AnyDVD HD running in the background, and I mentioned it throughout this thread and other threads.
As I and others mentioned it, we are using External Player because we want to enjoy blu-ray disc original menus, chapter, extras, etc. XBMC don't support it.
It's not that I stumbled with the playercorefactory codes. The codes I provided to you have been tested and worked on my HTPC's. As we all know, not all HTPC's work the same way. The codes might work on my HTPC, but it might not work on your HTPC. That is why I provided several new codes to you to try.
Previously, I thought that you want external player codes to playback blu-ray disc and blu-ray files. Since you only need codes to playback blu-ray disc, you don't need .bat file. You only need the playercorefactory.xml codes below-
<player name="Disc_Player" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<!-- Bluray Disc -->
<rule name="Blu-Ray" filename="E:\\.*" filetypes="bdmv" player="Disc_Player"/>
