Default add open with BSPlayer

i want to add BSPlayer to .wmv file 'open with' menu. WMP is my default player for .wmv files. for some reason i cannot add it by 'select program' and browsing bsplayer.exe in 'open with' menu. so is there way to do it via registry?

hope that you understand what i mean. :roll:

First of all it will be good to add WMV as extension in BSplayer. Then try to play a WMV file. Now it should let you add BSPlayer to open with list.

For some reason there are problems with the OpenWithList and BSplayer (discussed before somewhere in the forum)

Yes, you can, simply create these registry key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wmv\OpenWithList\bsplayer.exe

Me too..

@ Digiface
You don't have to add the path to BSplayer executable since it's present (well, it should be present) at the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\Applications\b splayer.exe
that points to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\Applications\B SPLAYER.EXE\shell\open\command

:? there should be a value..
Try to add BSplayer executable path to the default value. i.e.:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\WEBTEH\BSPLAYER\BSPLAYER.EXE "%L"

Better use this to make BSPlayer appear in the rightclick menu. Not in a submenu. Less clicking required. Change the strings where required to match your system.

Code:
REGEDIT4 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wmv] 
@="ZZ_ASF_video" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video] 
@="Advanced Streaming Format video" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\DefaultIcon] 
;; --- change this 
@="D:\\Apps\\Bsplayer\\Bsplayer.exe,0" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell] 
@="bsplayer" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\bsplayer] 
@="• BSplayer" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\bsplayer\command] 
;; --- change this 
@="D:\\Apps\\Bsplayer\\Bsplayer.exe \"%L\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\mplayer2] 
@="• Windows Media" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\mplayer2\command] 
@="mplayer2.exe \"%L\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\bloatedwmp] 
@="• Windows Media GUI" 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ZZ_ASF_video\shell\bloatedwmp\command] 
@="wmplayer.exe \"%L\""

%L enforces long file name. %1 might give MSDOS file name. However I'm not sure if 8.3 filenames exist on WinXP (they did on WinME albeit were hidden).

You do not need to install a ton of programs for every simple function. If your context menu is able to run WMP, then you must also be able to run any other program. You need to add a simple command in <type>\shell\.

Don't know if it's your case, but maybe your registry is a bit messed up :(
I don't know why it's not working for you and why you missed those values..

Anyhow I'm glad you were able to solve your problem with that utility :)

I meant not the ".wmv" key but the key to which the (default) value refers to. For example .txt might refer to txtfile. See the example I posted before.
