Default delete old codecs

I fixed mine :lol:

This is for windows XP and requires registry editing so only attempt if you understand what this means:

Remove all video codecs except Windows own. The following can also be done through 'control panel/sound and audio devices/properties/hardware/video codecs/properties/properties' in theory but it didn't work on mine...

(1) open registry editor (start/run/regedit)
(2) find HLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/MediaResources/icm
(3) look at the freindly names ie DivX MPEG-4 Video Codec and delete these folders - NOTE only delete codecs you know are non-windows!
(4) Install Bsplayer 1
(5) Install DivX codec, Xvid codec, Mpeg2 codec as required - steer clear of Kaazaalite codec pack etc !!!

Volia! mine is now playing all files OK bar a few new bugs in the latest player - BS version 1 is still an improvement though and it fixes quite a few niggles I had with the old one

Sorry if this doesn't help with your problem?

BP :roll:
