GSpot usually gives more information; like "The following combination of filters were used: ...". This is not so with you?
Also again: what IS shown under (rightclick >) Options > Filters > Advanced regarding video?
Further, when playing the .wmv file in WMP, please also check the (audio/)video codec (file > Properties > [file] > (Audio/)Video codec .?.)
(FYI: WMV8, 9, 10 codecs are microsoft's MPEG4 codecs; by the way, what version of WMP is installed?).
I understand you ran dxdiag; it could be of interest to know what is shown under display (e.g. with respect to display memory, AGP and DDraw status (and Test Result).

(Still seems to me it may be an overlay problem; you also tested using no overlay?)

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
Private messages/Visitor messages are NOT for seeking personal help with respect to BS.Player! Instead use the forums!
