BSPlayer installed without MOV format support on Windows 7
Couple of month ago I installed BSPlayer 2.52 on my home PC with Windows XP because I learned that it supported the MOV files.
Now I got new work notebook with Windows 7 and I naturally installed the BSPlayer there too. But I was very disappointed, because the newer version does not play the MOV files. It does not recognize them as playable at BSplayer and when I select the MOV file manually, I got an error about missing codec and question whether I wish BSplayer to find one. When I try I get response (almost instantly) that the codec cannot be found.
When I check the Options/Preferences/File Types, the MOV extension is not amongst the file types there.
It seems that all other codecs were installed correctly. Only other thing which is different against the XP install is the warning message about the overlay.
I tried that on 2 notebooks, one with 32bit Windows 7 Professional and other one with 64bit Windows 7 Home and results were exactly the same.
Any ideas how to get MOV files play on Windows 7?
Thank you very much.

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
Private messages/Visitor messages are NOT for seeking personal help with respect to BS.Player! Instead use the forums!
I installed Quick Time Alternative, but no luck ... it still behaves the same. I tried QLite too, but still no luck.
Also I tried to add MOV to the File Formats menu, but that helps only to recognize the extension, but the files still do not play. BTW I have found out that on my XP box where I can play MOVs with BSplayer, the extensions is not listed there either :)
For me to get MOV files working under BS.Player, I have to install Haali Media Splitter and during installation enable AVI, MP4, OGG/OGM support and then install MPCVideoDec.ax.
Afther that it just works for some reason! :)
1) Install ffdshow, disable h264
2) Install MatroskaSplitter (with settings as stated above)
3) Install MPCVideoDec.ax and register it regsvr32 MPCVideoDec.ax
MPCVideoDec.ax can be downloaded here.
