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..

Version 1.5.44465 consumes a lot of resources when it play broken or partially extracted MKVs from RAR files. MPC-HC & MPC-BE have no problems in this area.

The subtitle download window doesn't allow us to order it by language, good if could do this and save that option... (and when i'm saving the sub it doesnt give me the movie folder first, this is pretty bad, since i have to find the folder everytime)

Also an ability to se multiple subtitles on the same screen, i actually only can do this by using filter vobsub auto-loading, i still don't understand what current multiple subtitle option does. I like to see another language sub and the original one, makes understanding easier for learning porpuses.

@ danro

1. You can try beta version.

2. You can try portable version, you'll find here: http://evan0.blogspot.co.uk/

3.
You should start a topic about your problem @ the forum, 'cos "Please don't post questions, this is NO support or discussion list. Use our forum for that." :-)

Good luck!

The last version in linux I can currently get working is 1.5.42994. After that they put in a second audio decoder in the code and it crashes it even if disabled.

I posted part of the instructions to install below. Here are the last steps:

Just an addendum to my previous post. A couple steps I missed:

4. Copy mscoree.dll and streamci.dll from an original Windows installation to /home/*user*/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32.

On crossover it is in a subdirectory in your bottle directory.

Working versions are:

mscoree.dll version 1.1.4322.573
streamci.dll version 5.1.2600.0

5. Download DirectX9 november release from here. Extract it on a new folder.

Go to that folder and execute DXSETUP.EXE

On crossover you can just install it to that directory

(by double click on it or by using the command wine DXSETUP.EXE).

To test DX installation, go to /home/*user*/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and execute dxdiag to test the 2D and 3D).

6. I also installed Adobe Flash Player 11 for Internet Explorer. This is available in Crossover but I imagine you could do this manually just as well.

7. Install Dirac codec in the bottle you have installed Potplayer in.

8. You should install PotPlayer1.5.44465.EXE first and then update it with PotPlayer1.5.42994Upd.EXE. Both are available at:
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/PotPlayer/old-versions#download

If I missed any steps please post a follow-up

Great player, but at the moment its Built-in Video Codec/Transform when turned on (visible in 'Filters' among external codecs/splitters needed to play the video), doubles up CPU usage when playing UltraHD (4K) h.264 (AVC) and h.265 (HEVC). They all are in developmental state, so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

@DanRo - I can play your .ogg stream (Radio Infinit) using internal and external codecs (LAV). I use PotPlayer ver. 1.5.44981 x86 Dev Beta. First update PotPlayer (new one has more codecs to set up manually). Check if your firewall isn't blocking this specific stream address. If you use for example PeerBlock check it as well (It blocked the stream on my computer). The codec used in your .ogg container is Vorbis, so check Vorbis in Audio Codecs (but go via Preferences and scroll down to Vorbis in that section. If you go via right click - Filters - Manage Codecs|Filters you can't scroll and see the whole list). Last try - in LAV Audio Decoder - Formats double check if Vorbis is ticked.
