Default Two annoying bugs

I've got two big problems with BSPlayer (Free, build 816):
1. When watching SVCD's, seeking is very, very slow. For example, I have to wait 1 minute after seeking 15 minutes into the movie. Seeking works fine in Media Player Classic.
2. When I pause a movie (DivX/Xvid), BSPlayer often freezes. I have to close it and reopen to watch again.

Seeking depends on the MPEG2 decoder you have. By any chance, do you use FFdshow ?

ffdshow is installed, but as far as I can see, it's not enabled.
I assume PowerDVD is my MPEG2 decoder, I don't have Elecard or something else installed...
I'll try uninstalling ffdshow, see if it helps :) Thanks

-edit-
Nope, doesn't work... I'll try uninstalling PowerDVD next :)
But still, it doesn't explain why it is so much faster in MPC...

I am using Elecard as MPEG2 decoder, and have no problems.
AFAIK MPC uses it's own MPEG2 decoder, isn't it ?

I've used Elecard a while back and it gave me nothing but trouble. But perhaps that's fixed now so I can always try again :)
However, I just uninstalled PowerDVD and I can still watch SVCD's in BSPlayer, so maybe I still have some decoder installed...

Anyone who has a solution for the second problem, or is it really a bug?

You could check under [rightclick > Options > Filters > Advanced] what filter/codec BSPlayer actually uses.

Bedankt :) never would have found that myself...
Just says "MPEG Video Decoder", when I click it and click on Info it says "Microsoft MPEG-1 videodecoder"
Makes sense, doesn't it? Stupid Microsoft crap... Oh well, I don't have much SVCD's anyway... I'll live with it.

Still noone who has any thoughts on the second problem? I know my info on it is limited, but that's just all I can say about it...

/me kicks this thread

Anyone? More info needed?
- Win XP Pro NL SP2
- Happens on long (1-2 hours) DivX (mostly DivX 5), Xvid, MKV's (RV40) and MPEG2 videos (however, because BSPlayer boots quite slow on my pc, I often use MPC to watch short videos, so it might happen with short videos too, I'll check)
- Appears only to happen in fullscreen mode

Like CPU, memory, graphic card ? DirectX version ?

Got it again yesterday, with a Geforce 2 MX 400, 64 MB (other one is broken)
Again, BSPlayer froze when pressing space (=pause button)
I'm getting really tired of this :(

And one other tiny bug:
When using two monitors (tv+monitor, because Clone mode doesn't work properly with different resolutions on a Geforce), if you move the movie-window to the other monitor when paused, it starts playing.
Not a very important bug, but still a bug.

I think this bug ewxists from the beginning. I started considering it normal :) .

But, you still didn't tell us what decoder is used when playing SVCDs and avi files. I do have BSPlayer installed on something like 20-25 different hardware configurations and never had this problem. It may be related to your software.

PS, by any chance, is nero audio decoder in use ?

I did say it for SVCD's, it says "MPEG Video Decoder", when I click it and click on Info it says "Microsoft MPEG-1 videodecoder".
For avi it says "DivX Decoder Filter", I use DivX 5.2.0
I can't find an XviD at the moment, but I guess when I play an XviD is says "XviD decoder" or something... I'm using Koepi's XviD 1.1.0 Beta 2, but it happened on earlier versions as well.

One thing that might be worth noticing, although I doubt is related, is I sometimes have multiple subtitles loaded. I load one, notice the synch is wrong and load another one. BSPlayer then lists two subtitles but obviously only uses one.
I don't know if this causes the problem or not, I might have to do some more testing on that, but I very much doubt it.

Found another bug: when you have a movie loaded with idx/subtitles, and you load a .srt subtitle, it won't display the srt, but instead the last subtitle from the idx/sub file.
Only way to avoid this (afaik) is to shut down BSPlayer, remove the idx/sub files and reload the movie and srt file.
