Using MPC HC As Your Video Player In XBMC
For those who love XBMC’s attractive HTPC UI but have HD Audio in their videos and the hardware to match, Damien from MediaSmartServer.net has the guide for you.
One of the most important features I look for when looking at a front
end is the ability and ease to bitstream HD audio (DTS-MA and TrueHD)
from my Blu Ray mkvs. As I have documented previously, I found the
easiest way to bitstream HD Audio was using a 3rd party player called
Media Player Classic – Home Cinema (MPC-HC). Being able to use MPC HC is
not enough though, it has to integrate into whatever Front End I use
seamlessly. I have been able to successfully launch MPC HC from
Media Browser, so let’s take a look at how to do the same with XBMC.
