Anyone able to give me a copy of the original XBMC unaltered playercorefactory.xml file? I deleted mind to load in the new one. The mod doesn't work for me and I'd like to revert back without completely reloading XBMC.

Many thanks

John

playing kodi using windows 7 with chromecast in chrome browser.

This is a how to on Casting Xbmc from Computer to TV for Free using Chromecast Browser. You are going to see this blows away any previous method for casting like this. It actually can even cast live streams which I didn't even think was possible and something I wasn't able to do in Avia or Allcast! It currently should work on Windows, Mac, Chrome OS and Linux.

How to Cast XBMC from Computer to TV for Free using Chromecast and Chrome Browser.

Step 1. Go into Chrome Browser and add the Google Cast Extension at

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-cast/boadgeojelhgndaghljhdicfkmllpafd?hl=en

Step 2. Download and install XBMC Windows version 12.3 Frodo at

http://xbmc.org/download/

You need to run xbmc once to set up the proper folders.

Step 3. Download modified playercorefactory.xml at

http://www.mediafire.com/view/gdf9yqpg3b9uk9i/playercorefactory.xml

Place playercorefactory.xml in the userdata folder using the following path.

C:\Program Files (x86)\XBMC\system\

Hint: My path to Chrome Browser is C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe Your path to chrome.exe could definitely be different than mine and you will have to find your path and change it in the playercorefactory.xml.

Step 4. Demonstration

Start Chromecast

Start XBMC

Start your show- Click the Cast Button and it automatically finds the Chrome Browser and plays the video. You hit the cast button and it casts to the Television.

Good Luck!
When i open kodi...it doesnt open in chrome ...but on its own...I followed instructions..but no go...


If I understand this right, when I open my Kodi it should open in Chrome. I have had my Chromecast for sometime now and it works fine. I cast everything from Chrome, Netflix, You tube and so on. My OS is windows 7, laptop 32 bit. I managed to get the playfactory file.....with great difficulty..
