It is best player ever. It has even possibility to capture screen and games in any format and container (in full screen with problem) but it is not its purpose. Watch TV, capture games, watch videos and listen to audio files. I didnt meet format that it is unable to open.
Sorry for my english.

Playing any video file results in audio going off after about one second.

I have to re-select audio renderer to hear the sound. Something wrong I'm doing?

Have been using this product for over many years.

Can you please make it so that the focus of the keyboard controls returns to the video once you click on a file in the playlist? It used to be like this. It changed after one of the updates. Now once you click a file in the playlist and it starts playing, you have to click the video area to focus the keyboard controls so that you can use the keyboard controls again.

@cdburn: in addition to AllisOne's good advice, regarding your register prob you might try using another email adress (E.G. gmail.com).

Positive thing I noticed in recent versions, .pgs subs seem to play nicely by now. In previous versions they got stuck occasionaly. Switching to x64 version worked slightly better on that for me, by now seems all solved.

Hi AllisOne,

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I allways download additional codecs.

I found the mistake in the S/PDIF pass through witch for some mysterious reason has being changed.
All is OK and works fine now.
Thanks again for your help.

Post questions here: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplayer-Generic-Current-issues-development-bugs

I've
just checked both versions. Everything seems OK. All 4 internal/built-in audio codecs (FFmpegMinimum, dtsdecoderdll, OpenCodecUnity and FFmpeg) are working and external LAV as well. Do you download additional codecs at the end of installation (your firewall might block it)? Have you checked what splitters/codecs your player is using during playback? Is the Pass Through (S/PDIF, HDMI) for DTS disabled/enabled (depending on where you send the audio)?

Hello and sorry for my very bad english

Since beta version 1.6.58560, Playing a MKV file with a DTS sountrack give no sound.
Playing MKV file with MP3, AC3 and AAC sountracks works fine.
Last beta version 1.6.58575 have same issue.

Is somebody have noticed this ?

I try today to register to the PotPlayer forum but failed.

I just still find the setup a little basic. Would be nice that in case of previous versions installed, this was detected during the setup so you don't have to select the shortcuts, file association, additional codecs, etc every time you upgrade.

@ AllisOne

Thank you very much for your suggestions : I have deleted a couple of things and reinstalled PotPlayer and now all is OK.

Curiously, I didn't thought about doing this maybe because I seldom uninstall software.

All is OK now with the version 1.6.56209

@ Sputnik55: is there any particular reason you use 64 bit PotPlayer? (I'm sure you know you can use x32 apps on x64 OS). Wherever I go they advise to use x32 version and newest beta. PotPlayer x32 is updated much more often and I guess your x64 version informs you about those x32 updates.

Or you can try to do a clean install: uninstall PotPlayer, remove all folders from Program Files and Users - [Your profile] - AppData - Roaming - PotPlayerMini (+wherever else you'll find its files and folders). Just in case you can backup those folders somewhere else and Export Current Presets from Preferences window (be aware it will copy all foregoing errors). When doing a clean install you will need to set all the prefs anew.

PS. I don't think you'll find any PotPlayer developers here. You can message him - Kang here: ahahlive@hanmail.net and hope he answers :-)
And it's better to ask for help at videhelp forum, for example here: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplay ... pment-bugs

@ Royalstar

Thank you for your suggestion, but I don't use Windows Firewall, I work with COMODO Firewall.

Also, there is no use to block the internet connection of Pot Player because it is not the internet connection which has to be blocked but the window which opens up to say that there is a new version available when 1) it is the latest version which is installed and 2) I expressly say to Pot Player not to check for updates in the Preferences.

Also, I have checked for an exe file which would belong to Pot Player and which would clearly indicate that it is used for the updates and I found none.

The update functionality seems to reside inside the PotPlayerMini64.exe file and it would really not be a good idea to block this one.

Do you know which exact exe file or else should be blocked ?

Thank you.

Hi Sputnik55
Block it in Inbound and outbound Windows Firewall and that's it.
No more notifications.

Each time I open up PotPlayer a window appears which is telling me that there is an update available.

First, I have the last version, so there is no need to tell me that there is a new version.

Second, in PotPlayer's Preferences, I have told PotPlayer to never automatically check for updates.

Because of these flaws, I have been obliged to install an old version of PotPlayer (v 1.6.47995) to avoid this problem.

Could someone from PotPlayer check this problem please ?

Thank you.

"ConverterCrazy
What I learned from a website of PotPlayer's Polish translator is:
(Google translator with a few corrections) It is associated with granting the certificate for PotPlayer by VeriSign. Therefore, at specified intervals CRL is checked online via Windows CryptoAPI.
CRL (Certificate Revocation List): [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revocation_list[/url]
Without an Internet connection, PotPlayer will wait for a response from the Akamai network (CDN). So, do not reject calls from Akamai (try to change your firewall settings). I'm not sure if it's only reason that you have to wait those few / several seconds to turn on.

Certificate confirmation and expiration status:.
Right-click on PotPlayer.dll (.exe) file -> Properties -> Digital Signatures tab -> click Details -> click View certificate -> Details tab -> Extended error information
PotPlayer has now increased protection against adverse effects. Because of growing popularity of PotPlayer it becomes a victim of hacking and Some antiviruses notify that its files are suspicious/infected.
Original link: [url]http://potplayer.pl/viewtopic.php?p=5263#p5263[/url]

A solutions proposed by one user (I'm not sure how it might influence Windows security in general) is:
Disabling CRL checking on Windows level proved to solve the problem of certificates:
Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> click Security -> uncheck Check for publisher's certificate revocation.
* please do this only after installing and running PotPlayer - Windows must at least once download/check certificate.
Now PP loads immediately.

P.S. I'm not sure if it's only reason PP connects to the internet

This is the ONLY player I'd like to have but, I have a gut feeling that PotPlayer sends usage or some data over the internet. I am not sure though.

Can someone please throw some light on this?

Thanks.

I made a mistake, in my last message I mean for the Context Menu in Windows, there's no option to tag edition in this way. I remember I could do that in JetAudio.

Man PotP should have a tag editor for audio files, PotP is the most complete media player i've ever seen, cant be belive there is no option for it.

Again, sorry my english

PotP don't have a mp3 tag editor in Windows' shell, or in PotP playlist/options...

Also, does PotP supports DVD/BD .ISO files? Have anyone ever tried?
