I would use MPC-BE as an alternative. You need to install LAV Filters externally and add them to MPC-BE as External Filters: LAV Splitter Source, LAV Video and LAV Audio. Check prefer for each.
And if wanting to use MPC BE with Kodi, I would have to set it up as an external player?
Im about to totally redo my configuration and I have Kodi with DS player installed.
Would it be better to download the Leia Kodi build, overwrite the Kodi with DS player and install MPC BE?
I want to make sure Id follow correct procedures. So is it as follows?
1 Download latest Kodi and install.
2. Download latest MPC BE and install.
3. Install Lav filters
4. Make adjustments to Playercorefactory file.
5. Install Madmeasure tools etc.
Would I need to uninstall the old Kodi or will it be overwritten? I presume I can then uninstall MPC HC, or should that be done earlier in the process?
