BSplayer is buffering WMV's all of a sudden
 
Whenever I open an WMV in BSplayer, it gets buffered. It never did this before. It's annoying when I am trying to skim a video. How do I make it stop?

ZarathustrA 5th June 2005 12:15 PM

Mine does the same, it started out of nowhere!

I have been running it just fine with WMV files for atleast 6 months now, and just 2 days ago it started buffering on every single WMV file!
Nothing had been installed, no system patches/upgrades, no settings changed, no version upgrades, absolutely nothing running except IRC during the time it got bugged. :?

It sucks now trying to skip through files quickly, talk about damn annoying. :(

I love BS Player but this is such an annoying problem that even the crappiest player (WMP) doesn't experience.. I don't want to have to ditch something I've been using on multiple PC's for over a year. :cry:

Help someone ! :)

I am having the exact same problem.

alterEgo 20th June 2005 05:05 PM

I ran into the same problem recently as well. However, it went away after I installed STOIK Video Converter. You can download it here:

http://www.stoik.com/products/svc/index.html

I have no idea why WMV files no longer buffer after installing that program, but perhaps it'll work for you guys too.

(I know this kind of sounds like I'm advertising for the program, but the only reason I installed it was to convert WMV files into AVI files due to the annoying "buffering" thing. However, since simply installing it fixed the problem, I've never actually even used it.)

tenderfoot 24th September 2005 09:18 PM

So, is there a fix for this issue other than installing a converter?
BSplayer now shows the same symptoms. :-(

tenderfoot 3rd October 2005 08:48 PM

bump! please help!

Having Same Buffering of .wmv Files Problem-Any Suggestions?
 
I'm having the same problem with playback of any files with the .wmv extension. I've used BSPlayer without any problems for at least a year, and this just started happening within the last week or so. It makes playback of all .wmv files far too slow. I hate to give up on BSPlayer, but if this doesn't get fixed, I'm going to have to.

I have tried: (a) reinstalling Windows Media Player codecs, (b) installing Windows Media Player SDK, (c) reinstalling BSPlayer, (d) uninstalling BSPlayer and then reinstalling an earlier version, (e) installing Stoik Video Converter, (f) changing various BSPlayer settings, including "Open locked mediafiles (files in use)" and rendering options, and (g) uninstalling three apps that I recently installed. None of this made the slightest difference, despite the fact that some of these suggestions seem to have helped others with the same problem.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

DB

Bumping for a answer, I'm getting this 'Buffering 0%' error too, but it only seems to be with bsplayer not with wmc or wmp. my fav player is annoying me :(

its been working fine for the past month or so

Comp. amd64 dual 3800, 1gig of ram usual fair, latest release of bsplayer

*edit* also noticed its creating "dxva_sig.txt" on opening any wmv file in any player

adicoto 29th April 2006 10:28 AM

Does any of you have WMP10 installed or the option for Windows update enabled (in this case you also have WMP10 filters/codecs installed) ?

Luthien 29th April 2006 04:25 PM

yes, everything is up to date.

adicoto 29th April 2006 07:44 PM

I am afraid this is the cause.

Luthien 29th April 2006 09:50 PM

Can you elaborate?

This has been working fine for months until last night, nothing new has been installed, including windows updates or different codecs

adicoto 29th April 2006 10:00 PM

I don't use FFDShow, but it has the ability to decode WMV files. If you install it, does the buffering error still occur ?

Luthien 29th April 2006 10:13 PM

yes, it does

adicoto 29th April 2006 10:15 PM

And when playing such file, in options->filters, what filters does BSPlayer use to decode the file ?

Luthien 29th April 2006 10:18 PM

hrm windows media source filter and ffda audio decoder

adicoto 29th April 2006 10:53 PM

Then media source filter is still used. This is the point where the buffering occurs (and it can't be disabled just turned to auto or buffer at least 1 sec). :cry:

BSPeter 29th April 2006 11:05 PM

Just a wild thought from a layman: can't anything be done with BSPlayer's filter management?
:wink:

Blacklisting doesn't work.
Disabling: ????

adicoto 29th April 2006 11:17 PM

Sorry, mesage states : disabling this filter will remove ......... Are you sure ?

EDIT: Disabling filter didn't help. It kills support for WMV files (can't open file :) )

BSPeter 29th April 2006 11:18 PM

Or change priority or merit?
:wink:

adicoto 29th April 2006 11:26 PM

Sorry, seems we need another filter insetad of this one. I am not sure what exactly is media source filter. At least one thing is sure. FFDshow cant play WMV files without it.

Didn't take notice of this being mentioned before, but I can't help thinking it may somehow be a signpost pointing to the clue of the problem.
Just some posts:

Success!

Luthien 30th April 2006 07:51 AM

none of those links really have a fix for the issue, one has about hacking one of the codecs and others just talk about theproblem.

I dont see how it could be the codecs as all my other media players are able to play wmv files with no "buffering" per se or the creation of those files

At the bottom a guy (unskinnyboy) quotes this discussion solution
Quote:

the new ATI Control Centre gives you the option "WMV Acceleration"
I unchecked the box and rebooted my PC and all is solved
I don't know if this will hwlp you..
Otherwise you can follow all the links from there (some are the same BSPeter suggested you) and maybe at the end something will be of help to you..

Maybe take a look also to this ZP topic: http://forum.inmatrix.com/index.php?showtopic=3768
If you can't still play those files without problems, try to change video rendering settings (CTRL+P -> Video -> Video rendering -> Rendering mode)

I hope at least one of these tips will help you :roll: :)

On a fresh install of XP pro, buffering doesn't occur. Even after WMP10 installing. With a little bit of luck maybe I will be able to track the change to the buffering thing.

Windows media source filter ain't there yet !!! :roll: :!: :shock:
On the same file that yesterday needet it to play !!!

BSPeter 2nd May 2006 03:46 PM

Noticed version 10 qasf.dll in your post. Came across this article which has diagram explaining difference between Windows Media Source Filter and Windows Media QASF Reader http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...celeration.asp
I'm only a layman, but maybe you'll be able to perhaps see a connection?
:wink:

adicoto 2nd May 2006 06:02 PM

Since windows media filter is called dxmasf.dll..... :) I will read this carefully and come back, maybe with some new ideeas. Thanks for the link.

EDIT: forgot to mention, WMV acceleration is enabled in ATI's options. It came default when installed video drivers.
EDIT2: Managed to see windows media source filter, when playing internet stream. But not on local files. Yet. Updating from WMP10Beta (sorry, this kit I did found when reinstalling) to WMP10. Meantime swiched from internal renderer to all other video rendering options (including VMR) with no result.

BSPeter 3rd May 2006 02:02 AM

Will follow this thread, curious for news!
:wink:

adicoto 3rd May 2006 05:01 AM

Me too.

BSPeter 4th May 2006 12:21 AM

I was more or less "hoping" for some news from you!
:lol:

adicoto 4th May 2006 05:01 AM

Can I quote myself ? :)

Me too.

Nothing new, yet.

counterfeit 24th August 2006 12:51 PM

got exactly the same problem, no solution found, think i have to use another player...

Tizio 24th August 2006 01:29 PM

Have you also tried to update WindowsMediaPlayer?

counterfeit 24th August 2006 01:57 PM

hi!

i did a rollback to wmp 9 and then installed wmp 10 = no changes. Should i try the wmp 11?

thanx

Viscera 4th September 2006 05:47 AM

Found a great solution within BSplayer

for this you will need the latest wmpasf.dll which you can get easly by

1.) downloading mediaplayer 11,
2.) then extracting the installer with winzip or whatever to a directory,
3.) Then from there extract WMP11.exe to another directory
4.) Copying the wmpasf.dll from the WMP11 Directory, to your \windows\system32 directory... overwrite the file

Now for the BSplayer stuff (so obviously open BSplayer, if it was open close it and reopen it)

1.) go to Preferences -> Filter Management -> Filter Manager
2.) click "Register filter"
3.) Find wmpasf.dll in \windows\system32\
4.) Click OK
5.) Close the preferences
6.) Restart BSPlayer
7.) Enjoy!

Ta-Da!!!


The problem was... On one PC where it wasnt buffering... the Windows Media Source Filter pointed to wmpasf.dll.... and on the PC where it was buffering it was pointing to dxmasf.dll ... So i tried re-installing WMP11, which did nothing... so I manualy added wmpasf.dll into bsplayers filters updating the dxmasf.dll and it WORKED!

The problem was for some retarted reason sourcefilter in bsplayer pointed to dxmasf.dll instead of wmpasf.dll

I hope that all people with this problem will be able to fix it just by following your simple solution :wink:
