    Wonder how this one will stack up to say VLC Player or even MPC-BE & HC.

    For Windows, I don't know. I never tried Kodi on Windows.
    For Kubuntu, Kodi plays specifically Disney/Pixar DVDs much better than VLC media player or any other media player that I tested on Kubuntu. See my March 28 post in the 'What's your default Video Player?' thread.
    I haven't tested Kodi with anything else than Disney/Pixar DVDs. For simple video or audio files I use VLC media player on Kubuntu.

    IMHO it's like comparing apples vs oranges. VLC and MPC-BE are "just" media players. Kodi is a media center software.
