ronman is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Unknown file format

I am a new user of BS Player. I have installed it on a stand-alone Dell Pentium III running Windows 98SE. I have had a lot of problems with playing video clips with WMP 7.1 so I thought I would try BS Player. Unfortunately, more than half the clips I try to open gives me a message that it is an unknow format. When I check the properties of the clip, they are all WMV's. Why does it play some of these (a minority) and not the others. Are there other codec packages I need to load? Any ideas?

Go to Microsoft site and download codec packages for WMV 8 and 9.

I'd already done that for WMP 7.1. If I remember correctly, when you install this bundle, it doesn't necessarily put it in any particular file, right?
So if that's not the problem, what else could it be?

You need to do the same thing for WMP 8 & 9 as well. (Not sure if there is a WMP 10 codec out yet?)

OK, let's start again. First, what exactly is the message ? Unknown file format and what else ?
If you open the same file in WMP, in properties, what codec does it say it use for decoding ?
Did you installed any other codec packs ?
Did you installed the codecs from here :
