Probably it's a codec issue, and not a BSplayer fault..

Never had any problems on RC1. RC2 it's incoming. In a day or two I will install it and do some testing.

Good thing I didn't see this post earlier than you as I would most probably have done just that. This is not the way if one is seeking for assistance. Very uncivilized and totally unneccessary indeed!

Yeah, I left it only because I'm interested too in this question regarding Vista... :(

I'm having the same problem on Vista RC2 x64. I'm using K-Lite Codec Pack and Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic both play the files with audio and video just fine. However, BSplayer is by far my favourite media player so I'd really like to get it working :D

I'll wait for the results

Unfortunally 64bit OS are not so popular yet, but since almost all Vista releases will be for 64bit versions, some tests have to be done to assure a complete support from/for new systems.
I'm planning to buy a 64bit machine and probably I'll test BSplayer on some 64bit OS, but not before a couple of months from now... :(

Sorry to disagree with you but 64 bits OS became verry popular with AMD 64 CPU, faster and cooler than P IV equivalents. I've installed my first XP64 on an 3200+\2GB DDR machine more than 1 year ago. At that time there was a lack of drivers, but OS was OK IMHO.
All Vista releases will be 32 and 64 bits.

LE: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvist...s/default.mspx

And by the way, microsoft's windows is the one coming in two versions, 32 and 64. Linux for example have support for 64 bits architecture for 2 years now.

Yes, the 64bit systems became popular with AMD 64 CPU, but IMHO not the OS (and I speak of popularity, not stability).. I personally have never seen a PC with a 64bit system, while the plans for M$ are to spread 64bit as more as possible (also thanks to new intel conroe and merom cpus)..

But that was my personal experience, and since I deal much more with privates than with companies, I don't know if 64bit systems are so popular in the business market :roll:

EDIT:
but BSplayer is not available for Linux systems..I was referring to BSplayer tests

No problem whatsoever with RC2. Tested on MPEG2 files (using Microsoft's built-in decoder) and some of the newest XviD files. BSPlayer plays them OK without even installing other MPEG4 decoder such as DivX or XviD. Using overlay mixer, subtitles are OK. As for the fact that Documents and settings folder became unaccesible for users you can't save here settings. Also the reg key.

LE: You can't unlock docs and sett folder, but you can gain full acces to install folder and the key is saved.

Hmmm...I tried uninstalling K-Lite Codec Pack and tried installing xvid and divx but BSPlayer still doesn't work. Maybe it's an x64 problem?

1. Have you disabled account control ?
2. Do you have administrator rights over Program files folder ? If not, all Divx and XviD installs are for nothing, as Vista is ignoring them.
3. I will install DivX and Xvid some 30 minutes from now and come back.

PS have you selected overlay mixer as rendering methode in video rendering ? I am not sure about the compatibility between BSPlayer and DirectX 10, wich is built-in Vista.

Installed XviD. XviD files playing OK.
Installed Divx, DivX files playing OK.
Didn't manage to install my elecard MPEG2 decoder. And for sure Microsoft's MPEG2 filters have some issues with HDTV files. .TS file won't play at all.
Testing some x264 files with AAC audio. I will come back.

Installed Elecard. MPEG2 HDTV files playing OK now. Makes me happy.
Installed CoreAAC and CoreAVC. Nice.
MP4 splitter. Some problems here with some files. Just 3ivX instalation helped. Also with 3ivX installed managed to play the file created with Nero that I downloaded today from the site (when night falls).
Some visual theme conflicts with windows(violet border around main window)

Probably there are problems with Windows APIs.
To create transparent borders I think that BS.Player (as I did with my skin editor) uses gdi32 and user32 api calls. Probably those files (respectively gdi32.dll and user32.dll) are missing, or most probably the api calls have changed:
CreateRectRgn
CombineRgn
SetWindowRgn

may act differently.. I don't know if Microsoft have already provided an updated version of the MSDN library, probably not. I think BS.Player creators need to check this before Vista become final :roll:

Ahh the rendering option seemed to be the problem. I selected overlay mixer and now it seems to work fine. I noticed that Media Player Classic also turns off the DirectX, guess BSPlayer has to as well.
