Green static when playing DivX/Xvid
 
1 Attachment(s)
Technical details:
2Ghz AMD Athlon 64, Windows XP Pro SP1 with latest updates
ATI Radeo X700Pro, Catalyst 5.12 driver
BSPlayer Pro 1.37 B826, default setup

Issue:

When playing DivX or Xvid movies in BS Player Pro 1.37 b826, a green static covers the movie. This occurs if I use the 5.521 or 6 versions of DivX. A screencap of this is attached.

When playing these movies in Media Player 10 or the DivX bundled player, the movies display properly with no green static.

Thanks for any help,

Andrew

I don't know what's the problem, it occoured to me once with in game movies of Final Fantasy 7 for PC.. The only way I was able to bypass the problem was to install FFDShow (and use it to decode the movie).. :roll:

This is usually generated by older XviD decoders or DivX 6 when decoding Div3 files. You should try to assign XviD files to XviD decoder. The latest.

Strange thing since I used DivX decoder v5.2.1 to decode those videos (which AFAIK were encoded with DivX)... but the green artifacts were present, while using ffdshow the problem ceased :?

You'll find out in time that after a while, newer versions of some programs or codecs or anything else in world, won't be any more compatible with the older ones. They call it evolution. Or "buy the new one, the older isn't good any more".
FFDshow is a filter for decoding MPEG4 files (and not only) such as DivX, XviD and others. It is under continuous developpment (updated often) and sometimes keep compatibility with older filters, but not as much as DIvX and XviD. Usualy, FFDshow has more problems in playing older files than the official codecs.
To find out wich exact codec is used to compress a file use utilities {like gspot or virtualdub). Truth may not be what you think.

Figured it out
 
When in doubt, reboot. Once in a while I forget that cardinal rule with Windoze. :roll:

After a reboot, all is well with BSPlayer. :D

Yes, I know that compatibility is often overestimate, while it should be a must for newer versions..
But I checked with GSpot and the videos resulted coded with DivX v4 if I remember correctly (but maybe with v5).. At the moment I don't remember the exact version (has passed plus a year now from when I checked), but in next days when I'll find some time I'll check again :wink:
Thank you anyway adicoto for your reply :)
