BS Player advantages......
Hi, as you can see this is my first post here, and i am just wondering why i would download and use BS player over my existing Media Player that comes with windows. I was recomended to use this software when mentioning my use of TV-Out to playback my DIVX movies.

Is there any benefits?

One thing which im not sure if it may do is make my tv-out in full screen. I am currently using Tv-Tool for that but i dont really like TV tool...

Any way, i hope someone can help me.....

here is a quick list of what wmp9 doesn't do that bsplayer does [it's most certainly incomplete, I just put what I use often]

- wmp9 doesn't have any keyboard shortcut, bsplayer has plenty of useful and customizable keyboard shortcuts
- you can't navigate in a divx with wmp9 (other than using the very imprecise slider); bsplayer has 3 more ways to navigate in a movie: by time/ by small jump/ by x seconds jump
- right click menu in wmp9 is desperately empty; bsplayer's one makes many useful features quickly accessible
- You can't access your various filters settings in wmp9 (or please tell me how you do); with bsplayer it's quite easy (right click)
- wmp9 doesn't handle movies with more than one language on its own. bsplayer does.
- wmp9 can't handle subtitled movies on its own, except if the subs are in sami format, which I don't think is very popular. bsplayer handles at least subrip and microdvd formats which are the most common ones

besides that, there's the facts bsplayer allows you to define chapters for your movies, that it's less CPU consumptive, it allows you to use pan&scan and even custom pan&scan ....

many people use its winlirc compatibility for remote control

that's all I can think about right now ;)

* you can have a borderless moviewindow even in half-screen.. :D
* with different skins it you can choose one with exactly the buttons YOU need
* the subs can be placed at the exact right hight to display best on your tv

(just a few of my favorite-features)

Hi! my first post too.

OK quietseb, you convinced me (tho' I just took 1 hour 15 mins downloading wmp9! Oh well, what the heck....)

But why use bsplayer rather than DivX player?

(And what's wrong with Sami, anyway. Here in Finland the Sami people are highly-regarded. )

Frankly, I've never used divx player (maybe twice, that's all) but I believe it is quite buggy, does not support subtitles or bivx either and so on.
Plus it won't even accept a movie encoded with anything else than divx ! (good bye xvid).

;) I don't think Sami are bad people :)
I just meant that amongst the subtitles formats (subripper, microDVD, ssa, vobsub, sami, [others ?]), sami is not very often encountered. Well at least I have never seen any file using this format [although I remember reading that there is a RV9 player taking advantage of that format but I'm not sure of that]

thanks everyone for your help...

Custom pan-scan RULEZ !!!
Just that feature alone is already reason enough to use BsPlayer over any other player, imho.

It's OK I was just kidding :) Me, I was only ever in Lapaland once in my life. I kinda guessed that "sami" must be some techie reference (I'm a newbie, remember)

Great forum!

IMO, the greatest advantage of the BsPlayer over other players is it's SPEED. BsPlayer with ffdshow decoder, my crappy comp can handle maybe all those DivX 5 and other encodes, that requires LOTS of CPU power.

Just try it out!!!!!!
Then you will know, why everybody says it's the best Videoplayer! But if you are a beginner, then let it be. BSPlayer does have very much settings if you don't know how 2 make em good it is the half of the worth downloading BSPlayer. :!:
But it's still gr8 :D

I can think of 3 reasons BSPlayer will never be substituted.

1. Bug free playback. If it (yer file) doesnt work in BSPlayer - it doesnt work at all.
2. Custom Pan Scan. Lordy this rules.
3. WinLirc interface. A MUST for anyone with a HTPC setup.

hi all...
1- scuse my so poor english
2- congratulations for this excellent player..

I've read in this forum that RV9 rights would be expensive, and so, BSPlayer would certainly not be able to play RV9 movies in the future. :cry:
Are there different news about it or not?
It's in my point of view the only lack of the B(e)S(t)Player...
