Default Saving battery on notebooks by reducing access to hard drive

I've been using BSPlayer for the last 4 years. Currently I'm still using 1.37 since it's adware free.

Two weeks ago I was flying from Bogotá to Buenos Aires (7 hr flight) on a plane that did not have anywhere to plug my notebook in. I wanted to watch 90 minute Xvid movie I had on my hard drive running on batteries.

When the movie started playing, I saw that the hard drive access light was constantly on. BSPlayer was not doing read-ahead, which was possible since my notebook has a Celeron 1.4Ghz / 1.25 GB RAM. It could have read the Xvid file in 50-100 MB chunks to avoid eating my battery, which ended up lasting only 45 minutes.

Just a suggestion, congrats for your great product which I recommend to all my friends and relatives.

I think you can use the PRO feature Network Buffer for this purpose

With this PRO feature you can set BSplayer to read the video data and allocate it into memory (you can set buffer size and percentage of influence)
The buffer works for CDs/DVDs, HDDs, Networks etc...

Thank you for your good review. We appreciate it.

Here is the solution for your problem - BS.Player PRO, which enables you to define the buffer you want to use and how much you want to use it.
