m2ts / Runtime Error
Trying to run a "m2ts" video-file with
BS.Player 2.40 Build 996
I get this error message:

"Runtime Error!
Program: C:\ ... \bsplayer. exe
This application has requested the Runtime
to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support
team for more information."

Other file-types (e.g. "mpg") run without problems

System: WinXP, lots of free memory (~1GB).

Thanks in advance for any help!

Could you post a link to such a file (to test) ?
m2TS it's a transport stream file and usually requieres a splitter that support such files.

"---.m2ts" is what you get when you bring the video-files from a AVCHD camcorder
(here Panasonic HDC-SD300) to your computer.
The software delivered with the camcorder is rather awful.

So, could you make a short film (5-10 secs) and upload it to a filesharing site ?

Ernest 25th May 2009 02:15 PM

m2ts - sample
OK: under].m2ts
you find such a file. (20 sec before the beginning of a TT-Match)
Sorry, it's 40 MB because the trouble begins with files
that play more than 10 seconds. (2MB/sec - it's HD!)
Some do not start at all
others stop at ca. 10 sec.
FFDshow is installed !!!

Again: many thanks for help!!!

Can you also provide CPU and GPU data on your pc? Also, do you have ffdshow installed with internal "codecmanager.exe" found in BS.Player's folder?

Ernest 25th May 2009 07:46 PM

WinXP-Home V2002, SP 2
Intel Pentium 4, 3.00 GHz
RAM 3 GB (0.5 GB occupied by graphic card?)
NVIDIA GeForce 6800

I could not find "codecmanager.exe"
nor on my disk at all

Within the BS.Player-Installation
there is a subdirectory "FFDShow"
with a lot of ff_---.dll

Where can I find a short tutorial
about all the Vido- / Codec-related terms?

Ico-man 26th May 2009 10:54 AM

I am sorry - in 2.40 and previous BS.Player versions it was named "bspcodecdl.exe".

We beleive that the reason for this problem is inadequate hardware (specifically CPU). This file plays ok on Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.6GHz, while on Pentium 4 2.8GHz it cannot be displayed correctly (video freezes, audio is choppy...). Another reason may be that ffdshow only supports single CPU core, maybe this will be fixed with future ffdshow updates.

Codecs, filters used ?

Ernest 26th May 2009 08:27 PM

Even after a new installation of the latest FFDSHOW (20090515)
"bspcodecdl.exe" criticized an outdated version.

Anyway thank you very much for help!

One last question:
where can I find a comprehensive overview / glossary
for all these Video- / Codec-related terms ?

Some posts concerning codecs/filters:

adicoto is an expert with respect to codecs on these pages.
To find out which codecs/filters are actually used by BS.Player for playback of a certain file:
load the file (you need not play it). Then ...
... rightclick > Options > Filters > Advanced > (you can also click on the [+]-es shown to see more info).

"Even after a new installation of the latest FFDSHOW (20090515)

If this is the case, you might not have the permissions needed to write in that folder, usually Documents and Settings/... and you need to run bspcodecdl from administrator user account.

MAGIX can work(convert) with those files.
