How to tell BSPlayer NOT to use FFDShow filter
HI all,

OS: Win2000 SP4
I have installed BSP 1.02 and Divx5.2.1 codec (properly installed, verified with GSpot) and FFDShow directshow filter.

Whenever I want to read a Divx5 video, BSPlayer automatically picks up the FFDShow filter to render the video. How can I force him to simply use the Divx codec ?

Acutally, a more global question would be: how to switch between rendering methods when at least 2 of them are available on a PC. ('cause OK, for some videos, I'll only have FFDShow filter working)

Any idea ?
Thanks in advance.

For any video there is a decoder. If you use ffdshow you don't need any other decoder/filter/codec. If you have all the other codecs, you don't need ffdshow.

Well, maybe I was not clear enough:

Let's say I NEED FFDShow for other videos or purposes and I also have Divx5.2.1 codec, then in BSPlayer, I have no means to select which one to use to view a given video that could be read the two ways.

Actually, I've installed FFDShow because of the inability of BSPlayer to recover from a video freeze (while sound keeps running) due to an invalid frame (Divx AntiFeeze did not work).
I've read somewhere that FFDShow could handle this thanks to its smart postprocessing.

So ? What should I do ?

Is the answer clearly that it is impossible to chose which decoder to use if there's more than one available to read a given video ?

Thanks again

For now, BSplayer can't choose among two decoders at your will. But in ffdshow options you can disable support for DivX files when playing a good file and enable it when playing a damaged file.

Did you enabled "open locked file" in general options ?

Many many thanks ! :D

I'm dumb... I didn't even see that the Div5 support (as any other format) could be disabled in FFDShow. :oops:

As soon as I disabled it, BSPlayer uses the Divx5.2.1 codec to read the video. So at least I have a means to control that.

By default the "Open locked file" is disabled in BSP, should I enable it, and why ?

This option is used to open files that are not complete, so maybe like this support for your bad files is improved. Won't do any harm.
