Terrific player (probably the best out there) but the new icons really sucks.

Great tools.
Some bugs still present like import settings (reg file) that didn't work at least for me.
Some missing behavior like increase/decrease luminosity by sliding on the screen while beeing in full screen mode like there is for volume.

A part from that I'm very happy to have discover this tolls that now replace Kmplayer on all my PCs
thx

This video player is the true definition of All-In-One operation! It's amazing because this player is only known for those who seek the best rather than advertising.

Although it isn't open source it's full functionality shows that it implements the best and which is why it can't be open source (understandable).

Besides most players in which you have to force/block filters, PotPlayer allows you to specifically choose what filters/splitters you want to use.

The only thing I see an average user not liking this program is it has TOO much to offer while MPC-HC is very minimalistic as possible (straight forward).

I continue to use this because I now stream many of my content and this player shows the loading bar! Only if MPC-HC was able to do that i'll jump right on over but this player does it at best.

My only greatest, absolute concern for this player is the option to "disable all" or "choose all" in selecting filters. Otherwise you have to manually select what you want per codec it's HASSLE-SOME!

I was trying to get KMPlayer working on wine using outdated instructions. While I wasn't successful, I did manage to install Potplayer (the new KMPlayer so to speak) using the same method.

To be more precise, I use Crossover Linux, but imagine Wine, playonlinux, winetricks, etc. could get it going.

So to get it going:

1. Install Wine/Crossover/whatever (I used the latest version of Crossover for this).

2. Type winecfg to create the .wine folder.

The Wine config window appears. Select Windows 2000 OS. Now, configure audio. In Libraries tab, set "d3d8" to builtin, and also override quartz.dll. Close the Wine config by clicking on "OK" button.

3. Go to /home/*user*/.wine/ and open user.reg

Search for [Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides] section and copy below the following list:
"d3d8"="builtin"
"d3d9"="builtin"
"d3dim"="native"
"d3drm"="native"
"d3dx8"="native"
"d3dxof"="native"
"dciman32"="native"
"ddrawex"="native"
"devenum"="native"
"dinput"="builtin"
"dinput8"="builtin"
"dmband"="native"
"dmcompos"="native"
"dmime"="native"
"dmloader"="native"
"dmscript"="native"
"dmstyle"="native"
"dmsynth"="native"
"dmusic"="native"
"dmusic32"="native"
"dnsapi"="native"
"dplay"="native"
"dplayx"="native"
"dpnaddr"="native"
"dpnet"="native"
"dpnhpast"="native"
"dpnlobby"="native"
"dsound"="builtin"
"dswave"="native"
"dxdiagn"="native"
"mscoree"="native"
"msdmo"="native"
"qcap"="native"
"quartz"="native"
"streamci"="native"

If there are other DllOverrides you may want to remove them.

Pros: Supports almost all media types out of the box.
Awesome options to tinker with. Supports CUDA, 3d, chapter skipping, etc...

Cons: While resizing to full-screen while the main is minimized via taskbar preview button, the window goes offscreen after coming out of full-screen.
Does not output analog audio to a second sound card (only spdif).
No English support forum.

Requests: 2nd (or 3rd) sound card support for directsound (like in kmp) .
Ability to use madvr for 3d videos.
Manual playlist advance i.e. play just one file out of many in the playlist and stop or close file after that.

Please, add the posibility to play files backwards (reverse play). If quicktime can do it on the fly, then it's possible.

It stills need an option to download/autodl subtitles, like suggest if no subs are found, a sub-category in Subtitles section. Could use the same Internet Subtitles DataBase (ISDB) from Opensubtitles, like MPC does.

Personally I don't use wasapi for video playback but I've seen the option since 2011.

In the audio section of Preferences, change default audio renderer to internal audio renderer for crossfade and click the right-side button. A dialog box will pop up. You'll find wasapi option.

Is there any advantage to using 64 Bit Potplayer over 32 bit Potplayer?

Also happy to report new 32 Bit beta build 1.5.39549 has fixed all my video playback issues!

Again if you have any issues just send a E mail to ahahlive@hanmail.net and he will reply in English.

I tested very large number of player for different file formats but don't find better than PotPlayer.

I my opinion The PotPlayer is the best player in the world with the full options . . .

Thanks for placing the latest version here the VideoHelp . . .

Suggestion:

while playing mp3 / m4a files,

I hope PotPlayer can add a function that
if we right click one of the file name of the playlist , it provide that we can choose "sort by track position". Because sort by track position is very useful to listen the songs according to their original track order.

gate1975mim: Your problem is an easy one,,the codec Id isom as well as the video codec Id mp42 are the issues that will give media players alot of problems playing,,they are really non standard codecs.If I had that file and I really wanted to keep it I would either rencode it to a more standard type video file that all players will play like mp4/avc1/aac or mkv/x264/ac3 or xvid/avi/mp3 and if couldnt do that I would just dump it and look for a more compliant file..Honestly I cant remember seeing those codec Ids together in one video file...good luck...;)~
