Default When I open starcraft, Couldn't create primary surface

I have had this issue since i got bsplayer several versions ago. I like it because I can use it with my winLirc, but if I launch starcraft it cuts out the audio and it makes a Message Box pop up saying:

Couldn't create primary surface.

I searched the forum and tried different video rendering modes, they all show same error except for VMR-9 which made a message box that said I did not have direct x 9 (which I do, and it works until I launch starcraft).

I run:
Athlon XP 2600+
Integrated SoundMax soundcard (Did same thing on my Creative SB live! value)
Geforce fx 5200

Nothing out of the ordinary for hardware

Note: this is the same for nearly all fullscreen games, not just starcraft, I used it simply as an example.
