BSPeter is on a distinguished road

Unfortunately there are lots of different hard- and software combinations for any PC, which influence the graphics/video capabilities of each individual PC.
Also in that connection BSPlayer has two sets of controls (so if one doesn't work there's still another one you can try):

+ Decrease brightness (defaultkey [End])
+ Increase brightness (defaultkey [Home])
+ Decrease Brightness (HW)
+ Decrease Contrast (HW)
+ Decrease Hue (HW)
+ Decrease Saturation (HW)
+ Increase Brightness (HW)
+ Increase Contrast (HW)
+ Increase Hue (HW)
+ Increase Saturation (HW)
+ Show HW Color controls dialog
Defaultsituation is that keys for HW Color controls are all undefined, so in order to use those you should first define the keys you wish to use for those functions:
rightclick > Options > Preferences > Key definitions & WinLIRC
(Note hotkeys must be defined seperately for "Windowed mode" and for "Full screen mode").

Skins (= the control panel) may also have a button to open "Color controls" window (once you've loaded a video-file).
Otherwise (as mentioned by you): rightclick > Video > Color controls

As I already put in my previous reply the working of a set of controls (or not) depends i.a. on overlay settings (or rather 'video rendering') and hardware used.

What I omitted to mention is that it also depends on the codec/filter used for playback.
You can check that under (video-file must be loaded):
rightclick > Options > Filters (>Advanced).
(You can change settings there as well. Maybe you must click on a [+]-sign to be able to access the properties-window.)

An example if you're using DivX-codec for playback:
[Start] > [Programs] > [DivX] > [DivX Codec] > [Decoder Configuration Utility] > select "Quality settings".
If box "Yuv Extented Mode" is checked (=selected) there will be no color controls ("Picture properties") available.
Only if this option is not checked/selected thén "Brightness/Contrast/Saturation" settings will be enabled.

Finally BS.Player offers (also depending on the codecs/filters actually used for the playback of a specific file) the possibility to set (and remember) various color properties under:
(rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Video ...
... FFDshow properties (or ... DivX 3.11 properties or ... DivX 4+ properties)

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
