AVI with XVID & Vorbis
I recently got a number of AVIs that bs v2 is not able to open.
There is nothing happening after I dropped the AVI to BS main window or click FILE-OPEN to finds it.

Out of curiosity, I install as many players as I get ahold of to test those files. Zoom player complains that it cant open it due to file corruption or missing something or whatever, well, at least some error message.

AVI in bad shape? No... !! Then I tried VLC/MPC/KM, all of them play the files fine.

The files are Xvid for video (640x480, 1264kbps) & Vorbis for audio (48kbps, 44K sampling)

I guess BS needs an extra audio codec for it?
But, BS at least post me an error, not without a respond.

BSplayer V2 build 937 on WIndows 2000

You should install an OGG filter to decode the audio part. But usually ogg streams are not in an .avi container but in a .ogm or .mkv container. Be sure you also have splitters for the two formats. You'll find links to download them in my list of codecs.

There has been problems reported with ogg , search the forum, there are some threads about it.

To me, it would be kind of strange for BS to require an extra splitter & codec for it. As Media Player Classic (& some other players) can play it, implies that I have the proper codec installed already, and they are in standard form available in the system (not an internal decoder)

2nd, why BS does nothing in respond to the open file command ? At least a word of "I give up" ??

I will try to follow the lead to see if I can solve it.

BSPlayer need external codecs, doesn't have any built-in codec like VLC for example. But the codecs that some players bring onto your system can't be used by other players, or at least I've never tryed this. But let's do it.

As far as what I've understood, MPC does include some filters. It's not a 100% directshow app like BSP. I understood those filters are generally not codecs, but splitters. You can see the list of those filters in the MPC option dialog.
I understood MPC opens the file, splits the video and audio, then sends them to the directshow graph.

That may be the reason why I had a problem reading mov files in BSP, but not in MPC: the Quicktime Alternative splitter (that BSP uses through directshow) had problems. MPC's internal MPEG4/Quicktime splitter was doing the job fine.

I replaced the Quicktime Alternative splitter with another Quicktime splitter (Nero) and all problems where gone. See the other recent thread about that : "playing mov files".

So you need to replace the splitter, for the kind of videos you want to read, by another one.

Give us info on your current splitter.

Filters and splitters are not the same thing, grendizer. A filter can't be a splitter.

grendizer 2nd July 2006 03:33 PM

Hmmm, according to this page
everything in a DirectShow graph is a filter, including the input, output and the splitter.

As you say, man.
