Can't create direct draw surface
 
That's the message I get, every time, no matter what video format.

Windows media player runs them fine, Nero plays them fine.


I've been adjusting the render settings in the preferences/video tabs, and nothing seems to help. Sometimes it will play a black screen, and sometimes it will say Windows can't find the files, when they aren't missing.

I'm using BS Player Pro, 2.14.

Please help!

What graphics card do you use (and what is on-card memory)?
What DirectX version is installed?
:wink:

And which filters are involved in decoding process?
(with a movie playing right-click on BSplayer window -> Options -> Filters -> Advanced)

I'm using an old GeForce 2 with 32Mb of memory. For seven years it's worked fine on everything I've tried to use it with. I recently installed the redistrutable DirectX 9.0c April 2007.

Rendering Mode VMR7, Wait for Vertical Blank, Disable YV12 Format. (I'm using it like this because everything else crashes the program outright and then gives me the error message).


Taken from the filters window as BS Player played a small, silent, black screen:

That's what I was afraid of. I'm afraid your error "Can't create direct draw surface" may well be caused by insuficient memory on your graphics card.
You could try using BSPlayer 1.37 with FFDShow. (Please read this post when going back from v2.x to v1.x player.)
:wink:
[If 1.37 version is no solution then I'm sure that version 0.86 is)

As I wrote in the other post, I used a GeForce2 card with BSplayer in the past, I don't know if I tried v2, but I'm sure v1.37 worked fine (unfortunally I gave my old GraphicCard to a friend of mine, so I can't test it with v2 now..)

Maybe an error introduced by latast DirectX? (I installed November release)
