Digiface is an unknown quantity at this point

What program Codex's does BSplayer NEED to work properly?

FFDShow (DirectShow decoding filter) can play many video formats; DivX, XviD, H.264 and so on... When you install FFDShow, you don't have to install all those codecs separately + FFDShow's CPU usage is (much) lower. FFDShow can also show subtitles.

FFDShow can also handle many audio formats; AC3 (Dolby Digital), Vorbis (ogg), AAC and so on... But to AC3 i prefer AC3Filter. (then disable AC3 from FFDShow).

Then there is different file types, like: .mkv (Matroska), .mp4 and ogg/ogm. (.avi is the most common of course). There is build-in AVI splitter in Windows, but for those other file types you have to install their own splitters separately. You can also install 'Haali Media Splitter' to play those file types. Benefit of HMS is, that it can also split i.e. chapters from .mkv and .mp4 files. Those separate Gabest splitters can't do that.

For DVD playback you need an DVD/MPEG2 Decoder.

OGG Splitter:
