Editors' Review

+

BS.Player is a free video and media player that's been around in several versions for some time. It's a capable tool with lots of options and some useful specializations, such as automatically scanning your system for missing codecs and downloading and installing them. It's got some clunkiness, though, and it displays a nag message overlay when you play videos. It's only on the screen for a few seconds (though it seems longer) but all it does is tell you that BS.Player is free for noncommercial use.

BS.Player's installer has several options, including associating supported media files, which we declined. But it also scanned our system and identified a number of necessary and recommended codecs and offered to install them, which we accepted. These are familiar freeware media codecs like Haali Media Splitter. BS.Player splits its interface into two parts: a control panel and a video window. The compact console has the usual controls and displays (title, timer, etc.) plus a right-side menu with expandable controls for configuring and playing Video, DVD, Audio, Radio, and TV. A Menu next to the Minimize button opened an extensive file of commands, options, and features, including FAQs, a wiki, a forum, and updates, but no manual or Help file. You can reskin the console, too. We previewed the available skins but found them like the main theme, a bit garish and with styling cues taken from game controllers.

BS.Player can play just about anything, though that's also true of its principle competitors, which also rival it in options (and beat it soundly in looks). But BS.Player isn't particularly intuitive, either; for instance, when our first video finished playing, we looked around for a way to close the video screen before finally resorting to the menu. An autohiding Exit button on the window or a Close File button on the console would be welcome additions. But, bottom line: a free video player that plasters its so-called freeness over your video in an onscreen message you can't defeat isn't free in our book, or worth our time -- not with so many excellent free media players a click away.

"When it does not Uninstall it is crap"

October 26, 2011  |  By yfriedemann

 |  Version: BS.Player 2.35.985

Pros

Still crap when I cannot get rid of it. Closer to malware than good programming. And there is no clear way out.

Cons

Maybe crap is being too nice. Lets try and address the problems guys. Am on XP Pro and reinstalled it and uninstalled it using the uninstaller that came with it instead of Windows Add Remove program. This is a P.O.!

Summary

still crap. Until you guys will figure out why it stays I will negify this program on FB.

"Intrusive software"

March 09, 2009  |  By Captain_Fred

 |  Version: BS.Player 2.35.985

Pros

No clue, uninstalled it before using it. Uninstaller seems to work well.

Cons

This program made uninvited changes to my system.

Summary

The program replaced my home page with its own, attempted to change my browser search settings and installed an uninvited toolbar. That was the visible effect, I have no idea what else it might have attempted or done had I not had software to block it. This is not the kind of behavior I would expect from highly rated software.

"Everything you need to play music and films"

February 22, 2009  |  By malcarada

 |  Version: BS.Player 2.35.985

Pros

Includes all codecs needed or it downloads them automatically, wide selection of radio online, very easy to use and understand

Cons

There are no music visualizations

Summary

An easy to use all round media player, you need not to worry anymore about codecs, if its not there it will connect to the internet and find and download it for you. If you like online radios BSPlayer comes with over a hundred radiostations, all of them classified by theme.
