Does anybody have an example of advancedsettings.xml configuration in XBMC to have it use Media Player Classic Home Cinema as an external player for all types of video files?

This link has the answer, and the forum thread is also useful.

Basically, an example with Media Player Classic Home Cinema:

    <player name="MPC-HC" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true">
      <filename>C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\mplayerc.exe</filename>
      <args>/fullscreen /close</args>
  <rules action="prepend">
    <rule filetypes="mkv" filename=".*720p.*" player="MPC-HC"/>
