Launching bsplayer by double- clicking on file problem
Whenever I double click on a video file, bsplayer player launches and displayes the following error message:

Cannot find the file '<whatever?>' (or on of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

However, the file plays fine!

can anyone explain what's going on here?

It's a bit difficult to solve remotely...

- What is the filename? The movie? A filter? An other dll? The reasons of the failure won't be the same.

- Try to run once BSPlayer from its installation directory, and be sure that in the General tab of the Preferences [Ctrl+P], the option "Register extensions on player start" is checked. If "remember last movie played" is enabled, a movie should be launched.
-> do you get the same msg?

- Close the movie, if any, and use [L] command to load an other movie
-> do you get the same msg?

- Be sure that filedate of bsrendv.dll and BPlay.exe are about the same.
Run unreg.bat, it can't hurt.
- If nothing works run ClearReg.exe (you'll lose your BSPlayer settings), then backup your registry first.

thanks for the reply

it occurs on *any* video file I double click on

loading files from within bsplayer is fine (or on startup when set to "last remember file"), it's just when I double-click on a file to launch it. Even then it plays fine.

I'm using ffdshow instead of the divx codecs - might that be a problem?

I don't use FFdshow, but lots of people do, it shouldn't be the problem.
I can't help if you don't answer to my questions.

it's not a bsplayer problem
what you describe is a windows error and not a BSplayer bug.
Damn! i had this problem with bmp files once and i don't even remember how i solved it :))
.... i think it's because two (or more) programs try to register a file type (in your case avi's).... too bad i can remember the solution.. try to check out the file types in the folder options of W explorer or your windows registry :roll:
