BSplayer wont play XVID, even if XVID/FFDshow is installed
It's probably just me, but I can't get BSPlayer to play the Quake 3 Annihilation movie. (I was able to play it a year ago, with an older version of BSPlayer and CodecPack All-in-1 without problems.)

I'm using BSPlayer Pro version 2.10 Build 939 (Windows XP Pro SP2). I tried DivX with "Support decoding of Generic MPEG-4 video" option enabled, but I didn't get the video to play properly (no real picture, just green lines and artifacts). So I installed Koepi's XviD package XviD-1.1.0-30122005, but even though the codec shows up in Preferences->Filter management->Filter manager as "XviD MPEG-4 Video Decoder", BSPlayer won't play the file and gives this error message:

Unknown file format (XVID)

I tried playing a bit with all the settings, re-registered and quartz.dll manually, but it didn't help. I tried scanning the movie with GSpot and it says I have all the right codecs installed and it can even play it using XviD, but I don't want to use GSpot as my movieplayer :). I even tried to use FDDShow, but had the same problem. I tried searching this forum for help, but didn't find anything concerning my specific problem. So now I'm really out of ideas, any help would be much appreciated.

Ffdshow can play just about any MPEG-4 video track if decoding is enabled in the configuration window. What filters does Gspot display as being used for this video?

GSpot uses the XviD MPEG-4 Video decoder and renders the movie perfectly. What bothers me is this weird error - unknown file type (XVID). Other XviD movies display just fine in BSPlayer, but this one doesn't.
