Katharsis is an unknown quantity at this point

To enable overlay...

First, click start -> Run -> "dxdiag", Click "Display" tab
Make sure directdraw acceleration is enabled.

Then, make sure you have no other players running, close all preview windows, all other programs and excess windows and leave only BSplayer running. Then...

Lower your resolution first to 800*600 then to 640*480
Lower your desktop colors count to 16bit depth, if it doesn't work then to 256 colors
Lower your display refresh frequency to 60hz.

You may not only have a slow PC, you may also have a graphics card with 8mb or less. After doing one or all three above BSplay should work in overlay. And if you have only 4mb graphics card or less, well, it was time to upgrade anyway :-)

If you use 256 colors and want to use subtitles, make sure you set in BSplayer preferences to display subtitles in overlay. Otherwise you may get crashes with subtitles.
