@ mohsein: plz post further questions in the PP-issues/support thread.
http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplay ... ugs/page14

Anyway, I checked and PP shows tagged covers in Flac for me. I recommend using Mp3tag, here you find an explicit guide for tagging Flac:

How to make a proper portable version for Pot Player:

- install PotPlayer.
- install OpenCodec when asked, select all the dll's during install.
- open PotPlayer, in Preferences set to use ini file.
- copy PotPlayer folder from Program Files.
- it is now portable.

Why do this?
Because this is the only way to fix the audio in some mkv files.

The OpenCodec installment just adds a few dll's in the MODULE folder inside the PotPlayer folder.

The portable version listed in this topic dont work with all files.

Ability to cool my drinks would be awesome, too. Guess PP just aint no fridge, neither a GIF-tool.
Still some folks do not get the meaning of "Value for money". Meaning, was it WORTH THE MONEY YOU SPENT.
You get it FREE, might be worth a 10/10, just might. Sigh.

@ 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.
