That doesn't mean much as far as how 3D look on your friend 3D HDTV via your HDMI 1.4 HTPC using XBMC vs the standalone TMT5.

You can setup TMT5 as an external player with this "playercorefactory". It'll playback "title_3d.mkv) using TMT5, and other "title.mkv" still playback with XBMC. You can simply download playercorefactory and save it in AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata folder. It's posted in post #3 too. Smile

As I mentioned in post #33, you can simply download playercorefactor and save it in AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata folder. When you playback _3d.mkv movie, it'll use TMT5 for playback.

If you want more information on XBMC external player, you can visit my thread- Working External Player Solution.

Using the one you posted, path to TMT is correct, if I drag an mkv file onto the .exe it runs fine but xbmc says its going to be played in external player then stops responding?

There are several playercorefactory's in my thread, and I'm not sure which one you used. You'll have to post the playercorefactory codes in here in order for me to help you on it.

@FenceMan-
The codes look okay, but there seems to be some conflict in Windows. I generated a new Playercorefactory and Play3D codes for you. You can do as following:

1. Download- Playercorefactory and Play3D
2. Save both files in AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata folder
3. Change this path in Playercorefactory code to match the path of Play3D on your HTPC- (C:\Users\Dell\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\Play3D.bat)
4. Launch XBMC and you try the 3D MKV movie again

I tried it on my HTPC and it worked fine. I hope that it will work on your HTPC too!

Hey Nlutay..... Not sure what I may be doing wrong but I put the .xml file in the correct location and I even changed the file name to match the _3d.mkv and it does not launch TMT and I do not get any errors... it just does not play it through the external player? Any suggestions?
