Great media player for a wide range of formats
BS.Player is a great free video player for those moments when you prefer watching movies and TV series on the computer rather than doing it on the couch. Developed for streaming videos on PC, this powerful multimedia player supports all popular video and audio formats like WebM, HD, and AVC video, movie, audio, DVD, YouTube, and more. It is free to download but a PRO version that provides more extensive features is also available.
Introducing BS.Player PRO
The free version of BS.Player is a great media player already. The features are limited but can still be of good use for your streaming marathon as it offers impressive key functions. For instance, it is capable of displaying videos directly on your computer and can do playbacks of AVCHD videos. You can also customize its playback modes, as well as its speed, as much as you want. It provides video subtitles, allows you to take screenshots of a movie you're currently playing, and lets you create bookmarks and chapters that mark your videos more easily. Moreover, it supports plugins as UMPlayer does.
If you think those features are exceptional already, BS.Player PRO can give more of that. With this paid version, you'll have a resolution option for your YouTube streaming video playback—HD, high-quality or normal resolution. Additionally, you will be able to save your YouTube streaming video into your local disk. Furthermore, DVD and Teletext support are also included.
BS.Player vs. VLC
Considerably, BS.Player is a decent multimedia player. However, it can't be compared to VLC Media Player—one of the leading programs on the market. From features to performance, VLC just washes away the other program's ratings. In contrast with this software, VLC Media Player is a completely free and open-source program thus, you can experience all of its features fully without paying anything.
VLC also serves tons of highly customizable advanced settings besides its basic configurations—unlike this program, which only offers it on its paid license. Not only that but, VLC doesn't demand additional codecs as compared to the latter that requires mpeg2 codecs to enable its DVD support.
Decent but not better than VLC
BS.Player's function, features, and performance are fair enough for a person who finds streaming videos normally on a standard rate satisfying enough. However, for a user who aims to have high-definition or high-quality displays of their favorite TV series and movies for free, this program will not suffice. VLC is a much better player for them instead.
