Do you know which version of DirectX is installed on your PC?
You can check as follows:
[Start] > Run
type in: dxdiag
and hit [Enter]
What is DirectX-version?
Now that we are there: click on tab "Screen" (or similar)
You can test DirectDraw on this tab.
In BSPlayer you can try "Use VMR-9" (if DirectX 9 installed)
(under rightclick > Options > Preferences > Video > Video rendering)
You can also try other (overlay) settings under Video rendering
Help2Help (click) BSplayer: simply the best & most versatile (Build 1072 Dutch language here!)
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.
