Hi all, Loving XBMC very much, I just discovered it. Everything is working great except for one thing.

I have XBMC set to play videos through MPC-HC. This works great for my movies and SOME streatming. But some streaming it doesn't work. It loads up MPC-HC but then doesn't start the video.

I'd like MPC-HC to play my files, but I'd like XBMC to use it's own internal player for streaming. I understand it needs to be set in playercorefactory, but I can't figure it out. Here is my playercorefactory.
<player name="Universal_Player" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
<args>"{1}" /fullscreen</args>
<rules action="prepend">

<!-- Universal Player -->
<rule filename="*.*" player="Universal_Player"/>


After extensive searching online I've found someone else who wanted the same thing and they were told to add:
<rules action="prepend">
  <rule internetstream="false" player="Universal_Player" />

I have added this in it's entirety, and just the "rule" part several times and in several different places, but can't get it to work.

Can anyone help Please?

Not 100% sure about streaming but try the following as the rule section -
<rules action="prepend">
  <rule internetstream="true" player="DVDPlayer" />
  <rule filename="*.*" player="Universal_Player"/>
