Default How to read a divx/xvid without any codec installed

Hi guys,

First, i'd like to saw i love BSplayer, the best program for viewing divx!!!



So here is my problem: i work in a paranoid compagny, my laptop is completly secured. Thus i cant install any programs or codec on the laptop. In fact i can go into the C: drive and installing a program is monitored.

What i would like to do is to burn a cd with a divx/xvid on it and add a program which could read the divx without needing any codec to install and like a simple exe file.

In that manner it would not leave any trace etc, because im fucking bored spending hours in train with my laptop not beeing able to read divx.

Does a solution exist with BSplayer?



Thanxs in advance for replys!


ipolo

If you can't get it to work with BSplayer, try VideoLAN... it doesn't use the codecs installed, but it's own codecs.

Default BSPlayer CD autoplay without installation

Hi ipolo,

yes, you can play your vids with BSPlayer without having installed
player, video and audio codecs on your computer.

Here's how I do it:

Following instructions apply to BSPlayer 0.86 since I could not get
it work with version 1.0.803. Maybe you can try it and tell me your
result.

Besides the movie file you have to burn the player and the codecs
on your cds. Your cd has to contain following files and folders
of your BSPlayer installation:

lang (folder)
plugins (folder)
sdk (folder)
skins (folder)
bplay.exe
bsrendv.dll
bplay.exe.manifest
ClearReg.exe
menudef.dat
unreg.bat

and create/add following folders and files:

filters (folder)
filters\divxdec.ax (if you use DIVX video codec)
filters\xvid.ax (if you use XVID video codec)
filters\mpegaudio.ax (if you use AC3 audio codec)
filters\iviaudio.ax (if you use AC3 audio codec)
filters\l3codecx.ax (if you use MP3 audio codec)
bspfilters.dat
xvid.dll (if you use XVID codec)
divx.dll (if you use DIVX codec)
YourVideo.bsi (bsi file for your vid)
YourVideo.avi (vid file)
autorun.inf (for CD autoplay)

As you can see, you have to place the video and audio codecs inside
the filters folder and required DLL's to the root directory.
In "bspfilters.dat" you tell BSPlayer which codecs
to load (see also bspfilters.sam example filter file in BSPlayer installation).
Which codecs and files you need for a certain video file you can
find out with a tool like GSpot.

For my last XVID/AC3 video the bspfilters.dat contains:

;--- bspfilters.dat ---

; Video Codecs
; for DIVX use
;AddFilter divxdec.ax,{78766964-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71},DivX Decoder

; for XVID use
AddFilter xvid.ax,{64697678-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71},XviD MPEG-4 Video Decoder

; Audio Codecs
; for MP3 use
;AddFilter l3codecx.ax,{38BE3000-DBF4-11D0-860E-00A024CFEF6D},Fhg MPEG Layer3 decoder
; for AC3 use
AddFilter iviaudio.ax,{7E2E0DC1-31FD-11D2-9C21-00104B3801F6},InterVideo Audio decoder
AddFilter mpegaudio.ax,{51653990-57B4-11CF-8EB1-02608C9BABA2},InterVideo Audio decoder

[Video]
DIVX={78766964-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71},DivX Decoder
XVID={64697678-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71},XviD MPEG-4 Video Decoder

[Audio]
2000={7E2E0DC1-31FD-11D2-9C21-00104B3801F6},InterVideo Audio decoder
0055={38BE3000-DBF4-11D0-860E-00A024CFEF6D},Fhg MPEG Layer3 decoder

;----------------------


Its important that only the AddFilter lines for the required codecs are actually included.

The YourVideo.bsi file contains:

;--- YourVideo.bsi ---

[Main]
Version=0.86
NumberCDs=1
CD=1

[Movie]
Title=YourMovie Title
Directory=.
FName=YourVideo.avi

[Subtitles]
Directory=.

[Options]
FullScreen=1
RunHD=0

;-----------

If you will try with BSPlayer 1.00.803 you have to change the Version.

The autorun.inf (of 1st CD) contains the start command of BSplayer with
bsi file parameter:

[autorun]
OPEN=BSPlay.exe "YourVideo.bsi"

For videos on multiple CDs you need to place modified bsi file and
video file on CD (see NumberCDs and CD parameter in bsi file).

Hope this helps. Let us know if you succeed.
It would be interesting to know if somebody can get it work with BSPlayer 1.00.803 RC1. But I suppose there are still some bugs in BSPlayer ...

Martin

You can download DivX5.1.1 here. You need not install the player which is included in this "bundle"; you can simply deselect it.
For DivX5.1.1 codec, please check its settings on Tab "Quality". These can be reached directly through [Start] "Programs"/"DivX"/"DivX codec"/"Decoder configuration Utility". If "Support Generic Mpeg-4" is checked (selected) it will also play XViD encoded movies. If you leave this box unchecked, same movies require a separate XViD's codec (which XViD codec will - provided you've got an XViD-movie loaded - be shown in BSPlayer under "Options"/"Filters", where you also can set its properties).
After its installed you can find the codec "divxdec.ax" in your Windows system or system32 folder. (You can - of course - always use Window's Search).

For other codecs I refer to adicoto's post (i.e. this one) where you can find the respective links.

Default Standalone DivX CD's

I just wanted to add that there is a tool available that vastly simplifies this process. Its called "BSi Load Maker" and its available here:

I could do it with Xvid, but with DivX 5.XX it's impossible, if the codec isn't installed it only displays vertical green bars.

Any idea ?

Thanks !

superbob did you try BSi Load Maker or not?
It should have no problem..
You may try updating the codec manually or treat your DivX avi as if it were XviD (thus using ffdshow to decode it, guaranteed to work).

martin1 Would you mind referencing your sources?...

As BSi Load Maker supports only BSplayer v0.8x and hasn't been updated for a long time, I suggest you use HW BSplayer Autorun which includes the HW BSplayer Autorun Maker. 8)
The Maker supports BSplayer v0.8x and 1.00x, builds ini and bsi files and will be able to make a compilation which you can use to make a playable cd, in the next version.
I'll release it in a couple of days. :D

does that method above require the movie and bsplay files on 1 cd?
is there a way to play an xvid without it being on cd?

at the computers i'm at, i can't install programs to the registry + system folder, so i won't be able to get the .ax and .dll files from a codec install.
maybe someone can just zip together a whole portable xvid,dvix player for me to d/l keke ;]

If you can't install the codecs in a pc, then you must have them in the cd. If you can, it is better to have them installed.

I can't understand completely what you mean by that. :? I guess you want to know if a video file, encoded with XviD, can be played without having .ax files in the cd.. Yes, but you must have installed the xvid codec in your pc.

You can find the filters pack which includes the .ax files for divx, xvid, ffdshow, matroska, ac3 and mp3 in my webpage. :D
However, it doesn't include BSplayer. You can download it from bsplayer.org though.

HackerWerger: thanks for the filters pack on your website!

What i was trying to do was play an Xvid movie without having to install codecs (because i can't.. C: drive is locked by admin)

the first time i did the above method, step by step, i ended up with just sound and diagonal moving lines (kinda like watching a cable channel you didn't purchase)

But this time through, somehow I got the thing to work.. without me having to write all of these to a cd.

thanks!

BTW there is one small mistake in martin1's BSP standalone receipe:

You need to use "mpgaudio.ax", not "mpegaudio.ax". I assume martin1
was refering the the ac3-->avi xform .ax file. Make sure also that you
change all the "mpegaudio.ax" text to "mpgaudio.ax", namely in the
bspfilters.dat file.

I learned that lesson the hardway as I was tearing my hair out not being
able to get my CD autorun to work and then realizing all I had to do was
delete a lousy "e" in my bspfilters.dat file! Hope this helps out somebody!

I'd like to give a heads up to martin1 for posting the receipe. Really helps me out when I want to give a video file to someone who doesn't
have a clue about codecs, etc., and is paranoid about installing stuff on
their computer (not that I can half blame them).

Thanks.
