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.
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.
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 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.
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..
opened kodi...doesnt show up as xbmc
followed instructions at begining of post, but kodi does not open in chrome...so...that means it is not following the path i guess....stuck here...I have now read...and been trying for over 68hrs...and have not had any change...kodi...thought maybe i better register here and i would find the answer...but i am obviously missing something...almost 2 weeks 8hrs a day...cant do it
