Cannot load any video files
1 Attachment(s)
Since build 485 I have found that I am unable to load and play any video files (avi, ogm.mpeg......). The attachments show the exception that bsplayer throws up I attempt to load a file. Note, bsplayer will come up normally but then crashes when during file load.

I suspect that when updating from old version to new I accidently left old data in the registery (maybe with bsrendv.dll ?) that causes a conflict when the video file is loaded.

Any advice is welcome so I can get back to using bsplayer which is my preferred player.

Had that too. Got it fixed
I am not sure if it will work with you, but I had the same problem.

Here's the fix:

* open BSPlayer (without opening a movie!)
* go to preferences and choose the other overlay method (if you had
mode 1 use mode 2 now and vice-versa)
* close player
* open player again and load movie
* watch your movie and be happy :wink:

Cheers, Smarties :P

You are a champion .... I tried your suggestion and it works - thank you very much as I was missing bsplayer as the preferred player...

Gazza :D :D :D

It worked!!
Wow, Smarties. I have to agree with Gazza! I had about the exact same problem. "Overlay failed!" "Can't create DirectDraw surface" and the same error messages as Gazza when I tried to force RGB mode. But I hadn't closed the player after making those changes. ^^ Now it seems to work. Thanks. Easy does it, I guess. :P :D
