I just tried myself for this (Softonic's) download-url: Download BS.Player and the result of VirusTotal (F-Prot included!) is 0/42 !!
(I had VirusTotal download itself the BS.Player installation-file from the Softonic server directly. Do/did you do that too, or did you download first to your PC and then upload to VirusTotal? If you used the 2nd option, maybe it is something on your own PC which has changed/damaged/infected the file before you subsequently uploaded it to VirusTotal or maybe the file is damaged during upload!) Anyhow it still always remains possible that some single virus-scanner produces a false alarm. Softonic's policy is to execute a professional human/manual check in such cases to prevent a totally reliable program from being reported as malware. Unfortunately apparently VirusTotal doesn't do this. Instead it relies on its users (surely most of them being non-experts on the subject of recognizing malware).

etc.etc...
