Xvid Autorun CD doesn't work in Win98?
Would somebody please confirm whether or not you can run a bsplayer autorun cd with an xvid movie on Windows 98? I recently made this post: , but I feel that maybe I was asking the wrong question. I'm using BSPlayer .85 build 501, and I can't get it to play an xvid movie from cd at all! tried using, with "use divx for generic mp4" turned on, and, and I still get "unknown file format [xvid]"

So does anyone know if it will work in Windows 98 at all? Ever try it with a different version of BSPlayer?

Copy Bplay.exe and bsrend.dll, and create a new dir called "Filters". Download the xvid decoder and the Ac3 filter and copy them inside the "Filters".
Finally, make a BSPfilter.dat file which will contain the following text:

[BSPlayer filter def file]
AddFilter,{64697678-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71},XviD MPEG-4 Video Decoder

Root of the CD: "Filters", Bplay.exe, bsrend.dll, Autorun.inf, Movie, bsi/ini, BSPfilter.dat

BSplayer will now be able to play the movie.

P.S: HWmaker, which is going to be out in few days, is making playable discs easy and fast.

I updated to xvid-1.0-09052004, and to my surprise, the new Koepi build actually worked after I copied the xvidcore.dll and xvidvfw.dll files to my CD root directory. However, it only works when I write to .inf file to open the player and the avi (bplay.exe "movie.avi"), and not the player and bsi file (bplay.exe "movie.bsi"). When I use an .inf file with the latter command, I get the same "unknown file format [Xvid]" error. So technically, I can get an autorun CD to work, but I am still frustrated by the fact that I can't use my .bsi information, since most of my movies are 2 or more CD's with subtitles and chapters. This is the .bsi of the sample movie I was using for testing:


The sample doesn't have subs or chapters, but if I can't get the computer to load even this simple info properly, that doen't bode to well for any
other movie I want to burn to autorun CD

Any ideas on how to get the .bsi file to load properly?
