BS player won't play DVD's
When I try to play a DVD windows (vista) says "BSPlayer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to.......", and BSPlayer shuts down.

I use BSPlayer v. 2.22 and all codecs should be up to date. DVD's work in mediaplayer and Nero showtime. What could cause the problem?

To play DVD (with DVD-menus) you need BSplayer PRO-version. You can play the VOB-files using Free version though. What version do you have?

BSPlayer Pro v 2.22 build 952

To play DVDs you also need an external MPEG2 decoder. Check for Elecard, Cyberlink or Intervideo.

I already have powerdvd installed. Works like a charm... I'd still like BSPlayer to do the job :wink:

I recommend you to install mpeg-2 filters manually, even of course you can install power dvd or cyberlink's, but when you run mpeg2-like files like DVD in Bsplayer, it's possible to have interference with filters, though you can correct them by de-registering or lowering merit.

could you please explain how?

Don't bother trying to install other MPEG-2 decoders. That is bad advice. You already have Cyberlink PowerDVD installed and that has a good decoder. Since it works correctly in WMP, it is likely the fault of BS.Player that it crashes. The codec shouldn't be blamed for that.

BSP only crashes when I use DirectDraw render (so that Aero stays up), and only when I play DVD...

Should have thought twice before deciding to use Vista.

Well... yes, maybe I should have, but half the fun of having a computer is solving problems, isn't it? What better way of getting problems to solve than installing a new OS?` :wink:
I'm (sort of) joking, but I do use Vista, and I'd still like things to work

BSPeter 22nd August 2007 08:53 PM

From the feedback I've read (I've not tested it myself) it seems for Vista the rendering mode to be selected under (rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Video > [Video rendering]
would be (allowing Aero to be switched off) "Internal renderer overlay (default)" or "Internal renderer, DirectDraw surface" or alternatively "VMR9".

Same problem here.I have latest version of Bs.Player Pro with Cyberlink DVD decoder filters.If I want watch dvd's using Bs.Player I have to first uninstall it and then reinstall.After that everything works fine maybe a couple of times but then all of sudden it just stop playing dvd's with menus and all I got is VOB-file playing.

I have tried all the tricks found in this forum but no help from those. Unistall and reinstall is the only way.Kind of frustrating and I must say I'm disapointed.Oh well, Media Player Classic and Power Dvd do the job all the time.

can you try to keep a copy of BSplayer's bslib and DVDdata folders (they can be located in BSplayer install dir or in C:\Documents & Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\BSplayerPro\ dir) and restore them once you get the DVD playback problem?

(close BSplayer before restoring those dirs)
