How to crash latest BSplayer easily.
Win XP SP2 here. Take any RAR archive, rename it to avi and try to play that file with BSplayer. Instant crash.

Furthermore, what seems to be a more serious issue, the file is then locked for writing on this computer even if (the crashed) BSplayer is closed. You cannot rename the file back nor delete it. I used the Unlocker util to remove lock and delete the file but some users who don't have Unlocker will be unable to delete/rename until they restart.

"Latest" being which version and build number?

beholder4096 3rd January 2010 10:28 PM

2.51 b1021

"Latest" at this moment actually is 2.51.1022.

well thanks for noticing that - this happens when you update the software silently. Users who have autoupdate/notifications switched off will never notice. But this bug belongs to entirely different category than the one I started the thread with.

So, as advised by (i.a.) me: always mention version and build number instead of using "latest" or similar expressions.

Note I will hardly ever test if I'm not sure we're talking about the same BS.Player builds!
Anyhow, meanwhile tested (using this rar-archive, which I renamed to .avi); BS.Player simply opens a window "Unraring..." mentioning which media-files it unpacks and then starts playing them.
So ... I cannot confirm. (Win XP SP3 - BS.Player Pro version 2.51 build 1022, 26 dec 2009)
