What are some of the advantages of this DSplayer engine? I typically think Kodi is shit at passing surround formats UNLESS they're perfectly encoded in a Dolby/DTS wrapper, which is increasingly not the case these days. I don't know when this happened, but every idiot doing rips these days encodes things as 6ch AAC, which you then either need to re-encode in a DD/DTS wrapper on the fly or set windows to 5.1/7.1 and PRAY that the channels end up where they're supposed to.Kodi, when run and setup correctly with DSplayer engine, takes control of your PC. It controls your gpu in exclusive mode too.
It turns your PC into a turnkey media player.
Use a Microsoft multimedia IR remote, and you practically don't see the Windows.
This is why I don't use Kodi, despite having it installed and configured with access to my libraries. Lets talk about the realities of HTPC use lol, if everyone was watching BluRays or even unaltered BluRay rips Kodi would be top banana.
