Sorry for posting another "External player" thread, but ive used several days trying to understand xml from youtube videos and threads/guides. This is my first time trying to edit xml files. I`ve tried to copy xml lines from wiki threads and guides but i dont get the player to start playing the files. XBMC opens Powerdvd11 but Powerdvd ask me to insert disc (Regardless of playing file or disc...)

Im using latest Eden on Win 7 64bit and 32bit (To PCs)


I want to use an external player for playing all video in XBMC because my wife dont want to learn different players and i need an external player for playing blueray discs. I have Power DVD 11. I have two question:

1. In some guides there are .bat files and in some the player launch directly. Why?

2. My current xml, opens external player, but the file dont play (Insert disc...) Help?
