Many of my friends think that most of the actual software won’t work with Windows 8, and nothing could be further from the truth than that. You should perform a compatibility test, to see if your PC and the programs installed on it will work with Windows 10, Windows 8, but chances are that you are worrying for nothing. The same is true for BSPlayer.

BSplayer for Windows 10, Windows 8


The last version of BSplayer (2.71) has been released in May 2017. There were no major design or technical changes. However, the developers improved codec support and fixed many bugs for Windows 10 version. The users can download this update by installing the basic version of BSplayer.

In order to get the best of BSplayer for Window 8, you just need to download the version that suits you better. There is the free and there is the PRO version. For those that are in love with the Modern UI of Windows 10, Windows 8, sadly, there’s no dedicated BSplayer app for that, and you’ll have to resort to the desktop version. Here are some of the features you’ll be getting with BSplayer, the free edition, for Windows 10, Windows 8:

  • Automatic online subtitles search and download (new feature and I’m absolutely in love with it)
  • Fully skinnable user interface
  • Capture frame from video and save it to jpeg image
  • Display embedded images and lyrics in mp3 files (new feature, music freaks will love it)

Those who will be paying to get the PRO version will get some extra features and with their purchase will also be supporting the work of developers. BSplayer has been my favorite movie player since I’ve known myself of using the computer, and now, with the appearance of Windows 10, Windows 8, it’s here, as well. While it’s so basic, you can actually use it as a DVD player app in Windows 10.

I only wish I could include it on the list with the best movie apps in Windows 10, Windows 8.
