29th March 2003 05:40 PM

Hey I was wondering if the BSplayer can play .dat files like AVIpreview. I am dl 8 Mile (716,446kb - "8.Mile(dvdscreener)Xvid-Dvl.avi") and i am only about half way through it. But when i tried to play it in AVIPreview i just got some sound and no video. I think it is an Xvid because of the filename but i am not sure which codec i need because i havent used any Xvids before and i dont have too much experience with any type. So can someone tell me which codec i need specifically. And someone told me to uncheck overlay in the BSplayer options, yet ii dont hav BSplayer yet. What codec do i need. and i only have half of the file. Thanks.

bsplayer isn't able to play your file "as is" because the index of the avi file needs to be reconstructed (something like that, don't ask for more ;))
AVIpreview is specifically designed to do this

to play Xvid files you need... the Xvid codec :roll:
you can find Koepi's version as a binary here
(only developpers use the sources, others download the binary)

an alternative is to use ffdshow which can act as a replacement for some codecs, namely xvid, divx (any version), mp43 ...

with either xvid codec or ffdshow installed, AVIpreview should be able to show the video

Just to mention, I've got once a VCD and I've seen that the movie had a DAT extension, and BSPlayer could read it (with an mpeg1 codec).

mpeg (1,2) files are not built the same way avi files are ;)
[no details :P]
