BSPeter is on a distinguished road

As mentioned under item (3) of my Help2help-post ...
... also make sure to mention in your post which codecs/filters BSPlayer really uses for playback: this is shown by BSPlayer (with a video file loaded!) under (Rightclick >) "Options" > "Filters" > (Advanced);
The issue you reported concerned

so your addition about files downloaded to your HD using other programs

Why don't you use BS.Player Pro to download? (When the url is playing ... rightclick > Save as...)
(1) BS.Player also downloads HD movies as .mp4 and videos below 720p as .flv, simply since YouTube uses those video-formats/filetypes for such files.
(2) BS.Player can play both .flv as well as .mp4 videos;
what may be important is the (different) filter(s) used for playback of those different fileformats.

When you installed BS.Player, did you allow it to also "internally" install its preferred filters/codecs? (Internally meaning only for use by BS.Player itself and not interfering with your system's codecs/filters.)

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.
