Actually, I've just started experiencing this problem as well in the last week or so. However, it doesn't matter what length file I'm viewing. Coudl be 500kb could be 500MB.

I run a P4 2.4 GHz, 512 Mb RAM with a nVidia 128Mb Ti 4200

I;ve had previously no problems whatsoever with BSPlayer. It's been awesome.

The only change to my system has been that I installed the latest Forceware Driver pack from nVidia. Release 56.64. Started having the problem not long after that.

Since then I've also installed WDM 2.18 from nVidia.

I've just uninstalled BSPlayer and am about to try a reinstall to see if installing AFTER the VGA driver install makes a difference.

Stay tuned...

Damn. I was about to say that that had fixed the problem. I got to 1 minute 10secs before it froze again.

Can't be swap file or disk space as I've got 2 Gb free on each drive except one which has 500MB free.

There's no error output by BS Player. Just freezes and stop responding using 98-99% CPU while increasing CPU Time.

Another point is that the movie timer keeps ticking over. At least for a while. Sometimes you can still operate some of the buttons on the BSPlayer but inevitably the whole thing stop resonding to input.

Good News!!!

I did a bit more investigating and found that all my Video Players (winamp, Media Player, etc) were having the same issue of freezing.

So, obviously not a BSPlayer issue. Jumped on the nVidia site http://www.nvidia.com and sure enough they've already released another driver update 56.72. I'm not sure if you're video card is an NVidia series but since you're experiencing the same problems I am I'm making that assumption.

Installed the new drivers and reinstalled BSPlayer to be sure and everything is working perfectly again.

Looks like driver version 56.64 was buggy.

You may not need the WDM drivers but here are the steps to follow if you're unsure. Make sure you uninstall your exisiting drivers.

Steps
1. Uninstalled exisiting WDM (2.18) and nVidia VGA Drivers (56.64).
2. Restart
3. Installed nVidia 56.72 drivers
4. Restart
5. Installed WDM 2.18 drivers
6. Restart
7. Installed BSPlayer
8. Enjoyed full length video :)
