BS.Player keeps freezing on Vista (30 Oct 2008)
Please help me, I'm going crazy. I'm using BS.Player 2.32 with K-lite Mega Codec Pack on Windows Vista. I can play any video file I want with BS.Player but when it ends the application just freezes. I'm sick of going to Task Manager to terminate the application anytime a video ends. Please tell me, is there anything wrong with codecs? The setup of 2.32 checked the codecs and I have them all. If I can't find any solution, I'm gonna have to go back to version 2.28.

I can also confirm a lot of freezes with the last build but on XP. It may be related to BSPlayer or to codecs. I am still tracking the cause.

XP SP2 or 3?

Mine is Vista SP1. Rendering mode is "Internal renderer DirectDraw Surface". Is this compatible with Vista? What rendering mode should I switch to? (I don't wanna lose the Aero while I'm watching)

For Vista, best is EVR mode.

Subtitles are awful in EVR.

I do have the same problems with the freeze at the end of a movie. I'm on XP SP3 and use different codecs as buraq01. The problem is releated to the actual user account rights. In short: using admin rights = no freeze at all. Limited user = freezes always at the end of a .mkv movie. The movie must be of a certain size say >1GB = some HD TV shows will do. And you need to sit trough the whole thing. Just ctrl-j to the end will not produce the hang. This happens even if you install bsp into %appdata% (installation option) or give write permission to the 3 files bsp usually writes to.

Strange, I have full rights over my computer and still freezing ;)

andygr 4th November 2008 08:48 PM

:cry: yep right. Got the first freeze with admin rights. So I'm back on square one.

Same problem
Same problem, but on XP SP3, so it is not related to Vista only. It freezes at the end of the film, when it ends and I have to use Task manager to close Bsplayer, which already appears at "Not responding". Is there any workaround?
And yes, I do have admin rights on the system. I alse have K-lite Mega Codecs Pack installed and the 2.32 build 975 version of BSPLayer.

But how can I get the EVR mode?

adicoto 8th April 2009 04:55 PM

EVR mode can be used under Windows Vista. For that, you must go to options -> preferences -> video and on the right side you have a TAB named video rendering. There you can select EVR.

I have the same issue. Xp Sp3 here, using internal renderer RGB mode.
To add a little more information, this bug appeared after upgrading from version 2.30 970.
If I downgrade to it again, the bug disappear, but any newer version will have it (I tested them all).

krakjen 24th July 2009 04:59 AM

So.. no news about this?
(adding more information, the only codecs I installed are CCCP and the problem is still there with version 2.43 pro)

Edit: tried replacing Haali with Gabest splitter, but the bug is still there.

(The most annoying part of this bug this is that it also disables the screen saver when bsplayer freezes)

krakjen 31st August 2009 03:52 PM

By the way, are the developers aware of this bug?
It would be nice to have some official reply.

krakjen 31st October 2009 12:38 PM

Bug still present with version 2.50 (RGB mode/directdraw surface) under Windows 7.

Shadow_Fi 1st November 2009 09:10 PM

I can confirm that Freezing is still with us. Using 2.50 + Windows 7. Which version of Windows Vista/7 or BsPlayer doesnt matter. It always had this freezing problem. I had no chance to fix it. I did reinstall OS, maybe for 20X times, Vista, then 7... Used different codecs and filters... BsPlayer has lazy programmers, and their programming skills are poor? True or not i dont know, but i know that Ive been useing BsPlayer since year 1999, I am true user of BsPlayer and these freezing bugs really sucks... All i want is working EVR+FFDSHOW+ACFilter combination with BsPlayer. Too imposible?

CsorvaGep 1st February 2010 05:17 PM

I have the same problem. Any solutions?

Ico-man 3rd February 2010 03:02 PM

Did you try latest 2.51.1022?
