This pack contains every patch giving Bink video support for "Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain".
I've included an explaination as to what each file does and what I suggest to use.
Bink_patch_BO_(PC).exe - Patches the game to support Bink video and uses the videos from the PlayStation version.
BO1_jam2bink_eng.exe - Patches the game to support Bink video and uses the videos from the Windows version.
BinkBO32.dll - Removes the extra logo that plays when starting a new game.
The files and descriptions were taken from the now defunct NosGothica.org website using the Wayback Machine.
The videos from the Windows version of the game have less detail, worse color, and are in mono. The PlayStation version has better quality videos and stereo sound.
For the best image and audio quality, use Bink_patch_BO_(PC).exe.
After using Bink_patch_BO_(PC).exe, a folder will be created in the game's root directory called "Plugins", which uses a filter when playing back the Bink videos.
When using BinkBO32.dll version 1.0.3.0, the Bink videos will have a noisey image regardless if you use the filter in the "Plugins" folder or not, so I'd suggest avoiding it.
Included in the kain folder is a trailer for Akuji the Heartless, which is replaced by a trailer for Pandemonium!, when using Bink_patch_BO_(PC).exe.
I've included a folder with screenshots showing the differences between the PC videos, the filtered PlayStation videos, the unfiltered PlayStation videos, and what the Bink videos looks like when using BinkBO32.dll version 1.0.3.0.

Bink-support for BO1 (Video-Patch) - Bink_patch_BO_(PC).exe

The latest patch for BO1 is already added.
