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.

"Avoid like the plague:Paid positive reviews posted here"

May 29, 2014  |  By Hey_888

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.67.1076

Pros

There is essentially no positive with this app. I guess that it is simply ok if you have an Android tablet or phone, but that's about it.

Cons

Embeds itself heavily in your windows system. It's hard to remove and you need an app like Revo Uninstaller to clean the registry after you uninstall this app. n

App is also full of ads and an annoying warning message displays and lingers about using the app to play protected media.

Summary

Don't believe the positive reviews, period. Windows Media Player Classic and the K-Lite Codec pack or even VLC or SMPlayer will do you just fine.

"This is a nearly-perfect video and audio player!"

May 09, 2014  |  By bspbuco

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.67.1076

Pros

With a little tweaking you can get it to repeat if you like. You can get it to show time remaining out of total time, by clicking on the time displayed several times. It uses very little in the way of resources.

Cons

If I had to find one thing, it's that BS doesn't play several songs in a row as other music players do.

Summary

Great free software, highly reliable and light weight.

"Virus detected in the installation file"

May 06, 2014  |  By yanko_stanchev

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.67.1076

Pros

It's a great program actually. I'm still using the older version. It has the option to automatically find subtitles for the movies you're watching.

Cons

Unfortunately I can't describe the newest version since I'm not going to unpack an installer file which AVG detects as a virus.

Summary

Still awaiting for the next version if they decide to remove the adaware from their installer.

"Used it for years now"

December 03, 2013  |  By nmweatherman

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.66

Pros

Simple, sleek, unobtrusive and plays everything.

Cons

Can't think of any.

Summary

When I first found BS Player I couldn't believe its simplicity. No frills...just play anything you throw at it. I love the quality of the full-screen setting, and also the resizing ability of its standard screen. The EQ for music really tweaks my playback. BS Player is set to handle all of my media files by default...I wouldn't have another media player.

"Full of SPAM"

September 13, 2013  |  By BrendaMarciana

 |  Version: BS.Player 2.40.997

Pros

It was a great video player in the past and still run all kind of formats or codecs.

Cons

Have spam. I'm not a computer expert but a simple user. However I've noticed that the new version (Free) have many adds, and my computer is running slower. Also is not working properly on Windows 7.

Summary

I believe that, having added all those unwanted advertising banners Etc. surely in order to make money, they forgot to take care of the service for the user. In a few words, a good player ruined by spam, crashes and crap. I'm guessing... for the advertising and stuff

"Stay away or read up on history."

July 12, 2013  |  By fulemule4

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.64.1073

Pros

Wanted to like the product, but quicly changed my mind after the malware associated.

Cons

There was 0 viruses on my computer before installing BSPlayer. After installing this program, there is no way to get rid of it. When you scan for viruses the trojan quicly creates multiple duplicates. If you read up on how to delete the malware, you will find things like this type of trojan is running in virtual mode. After few days of virus scans and deletion, it is still unsuccsessful. I have never encountered a difficult trojan worm like this beofore.

Summary

If you consider downloading this program, make sure you read up on the trojan history of BSPlayer all versions

"Simplicity itself"

May 25, 2013  |  By nmweatherman

 |  Version: BSPlayer 2.65

Pros

Light footprint, plays all my music and videos

Cons

None......

Summary

I have used BS Player for a few years now on my PC (XP Pro). It is simplicity itself, which I greatly appreciate...less is more. When I was in programming school the first lesson taught was K.I.S.S., or "keep it simple, stupid!" I like the small display and the screen you can instantly size. It has a great EQ to use with music and simple color adjustments for all your videos. How can free software be this good? Try it, you may never go back to your other media player.
