Default problems with viewing video-cd's

since a while i have been having problems with watching video-cd's.
bsplayer can't open practically any of them and i even installed media player to try the video-cd's on, but that doesn't work either.
if it's a codec-thing: i have installed the tsunami-codec-pack 3.97.

can anybody help me? by the way, my version of bsplayer is 0.86b496.

If you're only playing VCD's and/or SVCD's, you need an MPEG Video Decoder (not to confuse with mp3).
Unfortunately I don't know the Tsunami Codec pack (that's to say I don't know what codecs it holds and I also like to keep it that way). From what I saw at the DivX-digest page it doesn't seems too recent to me though (2 August 2002!). Therefore I don't know what codecs you may have installed (hopefully not the full pack). I just repeat the suggestion of the relevant page of Divx-digest, i.e.
Quote:
Suggestion : In most situations, you do not need to install codec/filter packs and certainly not every codec/filter that comes with these packs. In fact, you may run into problems if you install too many codec/filters on your computer. It is Highly recommended that you only install the codec/filters that you absolutely need.
I would advise to use Avicodec or GSpot to find out what you need. Have a look at Help to Help hereunder (that post will also tell you that you haven't got latest BSPlayer's version).

0x0402;IAC2;2.5 .53;Indeo® audio software;

The message I get from BSPlayer is: "Unknown File Format ()"

Both AVIcodec and GSpot can't find out what the codecs are. AVIcodec provides me with the message: "Opening Error The Source filter for this file could not be loaded for L:\MPEG2\AVISEQ01.MPG".
GSpot just says he couldn't find any codecs...

Again, I have this problem with a lot of my VideoCD's.

You need an MPEG2 codec. Search for elecard MPEG2 codec.

I just happened to see it's included in K-Lite codec pack (full version) which you can download here.
With respect to codec-packs please note that the art is knowing to restrict yourself!
In this connection I would like to repeat the advice on DivX-digest download page:

I would suggest you to follow this advice anytime!

Thanks BSPeter and adicoto! I uninstalled all codecs, installed the Nimo Codec Pack b8 (it had 2 codecs I needed that weren't in the KaZaA-LiTe-pack) with only the codecs I needed and downloaded the Elecard MPEG2-codec.

Everything works fine now, thanks again!
