Here is step-by-step example how to use XMTV Player with Kodi on Android.

1.¬†Create a new plain text file “playercorefactory.xml”¬†using a text editor and copy the contents of following snipet:

<playercorefactory>
        <players>
                <player name="XMTVPlayer" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
                        <filename>com.xmtvplayer.watch.live.streams</filename>
                        <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>
                        <playcountminimumtime>120</playcountminimumtime>
                </player>
        </players>
        <rules action="prepend">
                <rule protocols="httphost" player="XMTVPlayer"></rule>
                <rule protocols="rtmp" player="XMTVPlayer"></rule>
                <rule protocols="ace" player="XMTVPlayer"></rule>
                <rule protocols="acestream" player="XMTVPlayer"></rule>
                <rule internetstream="true" player="XMTVPlayer"></rule>
