@ bartslol: What you mention to be "pretty bad" and "errors" is part weird expectations, part inability of user (you).
PotPlayers only issue worth mentioning might be, you can adjust almost too much.
As AllisOne mentioned, this aint no helpdesk.
Furthermore, you give 8 of 10 points "value of money"?
Maybe you expected, on top of the free download, the devs sending someone straight to your home, doing a little power point presentation and tutorial for you?

For those who say new version (1.6.x) takes high cpu usage;

New version has turned off DXVA feature by default, so it doesn't use hardware acceleration to play your videos, and instead it uses your cpu for everything it does. To turn on DXVA goto:

Preferences > Filter Control > Video Decoder > Built-in codec/DXVA settings

and check the "Use DXVA" checkbox. Apply the change and close. It should be ok now.

Every time I do update to a beta or new version, the options: General>Startup> Windows Size reset to default size, pretty bad since i like to startup on last used size

The same for playback settings, it get back to custom video size, i like to use the same window size even for playing or sttoped pb.

PP stills need an ability to save parts of video into gif

There's an error with second subtitle, I do Alt+Shift+S for 2nd subtitle (when video is playing) and its clean after restart the player

Time and subtitles are on same position when creating thumbnails images, that's pretty bad, should also have an option to take images in jpg, but we choose the quality level of it.

Time should be on top left or right of the screen

@ Doomsday.a and others - probably you noticed this: Please don't post questions, this is NO support or discussion list. Use our forum for that. For example here:
http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplay ... pment-bugs

It's much easier to find solutions and to answer questions there.

@ Doomsday.a: you know well that your "i did what you said, but it didn't work" means nothing to anybody who wants to help. There's no specific steps you took. Use the link @ the forum to get proper help.

@ Doomsday.a: try to play HD movies with Built-in Video Codec/Transform turned off (visible in 'Filters' among external codecs/splitters needed to play the video). For me it doubles up CPU usage when playing (Ultra)HD - h.264 (AVC) and h.265 (HEVC). Preferences - Filter Control - (go to the right) Built-in Video processing filter settings - Condition: Disable with the following conditions and choose the conditions: FourCC, Extension, Frame Rate, etc.

Did you download the Open codecs during installation? In the internal filters/decoders setting you have a few decoder to choose (OpenCodecUnity, FFmpeg, Libav). Or try external ones like LAV Filters.

Disregard the two posts below, I'm using a Windows 7 64 bit laptop with an i3 processor, and it barely uses any of my CPU playing 720p+ videos.

Further more setting up Madashi VR (MadVR) is beyond simple.

To set up video rendering madshi is very complicated. Madrv already installed and not open. In light alloy player is only madshi you click the option and it opens automatically.

Re: update 1.6.46971 x64 on Win 8.1 x64


this latest version locks my soundcard so I have no audio when I open other instances, or other applications….

I had to revert back to a previous version. Hopefully this version fixes that.

Great player though….


thx

Thanks for this software, is a great player
There's a problem with WarpSharp in PotPlayer x64 (Stable Version) , when I use it, the cpu is going to 100%.
PotPlayer x64 1.647450 -> Video Processing -> There aren't problems with Motion Blur and Deband and others, except with WarpSharp.
Before, when I used WarpSharp in previous versions, there weren't problems.
Please fix it.

PotPlayer has a new global website in English, Korean and Chinese: http://potplayer.daum.net/

It contains PotPlayer x32 and x64 multilingual (at the moment English, Polish, Russian, Portuguese, Korean and 2 Chinese translations).

The website is quite simple, but it's just the start.

I confirm the "Same as input" problem happens in the last version too; PotPlayer1.6.46599Upd in WinXP at least.

In version PotPlayer1.6.46586Upd, in WinXP, the option in Audio--> "Output Speakers" --> Same as input" doesn't work correctly. Normally in that way, having XP/Creative panel to 5.1 and actual 5.1 speakers and of course with a 5.1 video source(I have test videos), the output was 5.1, in this version mixes the surround speakers, and I have to manually set "Output Speakers" to "3/0/2+LFE - 5.1 channel" for it to work properly. Didn't test the last version (1.6.46599 Update - April 13 2014) yet.

@ TGB: You might disable internal filters [at least for HD-content], try LAV-Filters instead. Setting your preferred Sub/audio language in LAV-Splitter Settings works properly. I use built in filters for DVD-playback only, LAV Splitter/ decoder works like a charm even with untouched Bluray playback on a middle/lower class engine..

v1.5.45955 cannot display the preferred language properly, I've configured to display "es esp Spanish" and it display portuguese subs instead. Previous stable version works fine.

but it appears like this:
