[SOLVED] A multitude of issues: [resolved]
BSplayer version 1.37
Build 826, 11. Dec 2005
Running Windows XP.
Let me know if you need to know anything else.

So here's my problem: I have this video, and when I try to play it under default rendering, I get a rather lovely big black screen. Yes, I know - "Change the rendering" - I did, and under every single other rendering option it seems, the video plays alright, but:

I can't lighten the video. Whenever I try to open colour controls, nothing happens. So the video is too dark. I obviously can't lighten my monitor, because the video just stays the same.

I can't go frame-by-frame, which is absolutely essential. No other player does both screencaps and frame-by-frame that I know of.

I can't take screenshots. Which is what I desperately need to do.

So to solve my initial problem, I have to switch the rendering; well, that's just not doable, because none of the functions I need work under different rendering selections. At all. This version of BSplayer is my favourite. I love it to death and hate to use anything else, which is why I'm buckling and seeking help. It always works fine, and if I can only just fix the black screen issue and be able to watch it normally on the default rendering setting so I can go frame-by-frame and adjust the lightness, etc, then my world will be peachy-keen and I can get out of your hair.

Please, please advise. I've been wrestling with this for days.

Thank you,

So, this happens only with ONE of your video files, yes ?

In this case, can you post here what kind of video file are we talking about ? Perhaps is an MPEG1/2 file, or a WMV one ?

Open the file, rightclick->options->filters and please post here wich filters are stated in that window.

Thank you for your reply. I really appreciate it.

Yes, only one of my videos. If it wasn't such an important video then I probably wouldn't bother, but unfortunately it is.

The file format is AVI.

The filters are:

Default DirectSound Device

DivX Decoder Filter

MPEG Layer-3 Decoder

I hope that's what you were wanting?

Probably the file it's decoded by DivX filter but it's either encoded by an older version (3.11 for example), either the file is in fact endoded with XviD.
At this point, my advice is to uninstall DIvX and install ffdshow.

Oh my God, it worked.

I took out DivX and put in ffdshow and it works! I can go frame by frame, lighten the video, and have it all on the default rendering.

Holy crap you have no idea how thankful I am. Thank you so much. Thank you so so so much. I love you.

My issue is resolved then. Thanks again! :D
