  • Android 7 / Kodi 17+ wrapper [lexicon]settings[/lexicon] (playercorefactory)

    Z7+ has issues with certain types of audio in kodi, so XBMC/ Kodi wrapper to make Kodi play some video using z7+ default media video player app rather than Kodi's internal player. Wrapper setup can be easily changed by editing a file on Z7+ called 'playercorefactory.xml'.

    I have attached the file bellow for testing. Rename the files zip to apk and txt file xml.

    The playercorefactory below is intended to be the current 'best' version for most .

    It is designed to:

    - Default play all video using z7+ video player.
    - Play DVD using Kodi internal player.
    - Play audio (music) using Kodi internal player.
    - Play all streams/pvr using Kodi internal player.

    It is better than the playercorefactory.xml pre-installed on firmware 2.0.6 because:

    - It allows NFS streams to be played using wrapper.

    Installation instructions


    Method 1 (using z7+)

    - Install a file manager app like 'total commander' (my current favourite).
    - Navigate to root/sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
    - Edit playercorefactory.xml (total commander has a built in file [lexicon]editor[/lexicon])

    Method 2 (using a PC)

    - Enable Samba sharing on z7+ ([lexicon]Settings[/lexicon] - More - SAMBA Service - Enable)
    - Navigate to z7+on a PC and then to /sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
    - Edit playercorefactory.xml using PC file [lexicon]editor[/lexicon]


  • Hello,

    all my media are on a NAS, all is working with the player of kodi, but I don't know how to set the XBMC wrapper to access the media of the NAS. I think it don't work or perhaps it is needed to root the Formuler, that is not a good idea...
