Hello people, I didn't write those ads addresses in my Host File, and I really don't see any Adware Window :S I tried to reproduce the issue but I did not encounter any problem...

Like reviewer vertigo, I had the problem of not being able to access the lower right corner of the screen. I wasted an enormous amount of time looking for a solution to the problem and searched google every which way without finding an answer. I finally discovered the cause of the problem by copying and pasting text that was in the invisible window and saw a reference to Pot Player. After not using Pot Player and not having the problem re-occur, it confirmed that it was indeed Pot Player causing the problem. I suspect that the window was invisible because I was using the modified host file to block ads.

Normally, I wouldn't give a free app a low "value for money" rating, but in this case, time is money and it cost me a lot of time, so it merits a low rating there too. Functionality is also low, since it crippled my computer until I stopped using the app.

I am using MPC-BE now. It does everything I need but is a little less convenient than Pot Player was when using playlists because it doesn't save your place when you close it. I have to re-save the playlist after each use to update it to the last video I was watching.

best media player, easy to use but BEWARE it have hidden ads which show as one pixel and because they use several ads provider, they sometime include malware

be sure to block it using host file

Review by TehBotolSOsro on Mar 14, 2021 Version: 210209 (1.7.21419 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 3/10




By far the best player from a functionality and capability standpoint, but it has some issues and the dev flat-out doesn't care, so it's a waste of time trying to inform him of them. And now he's including ads, which on its own isn't really an issue, since devs have to make money, but I'd rather pay money for it--and it would be worth it if the dev wasn't such an ***--and they're not even contained within the app. I was trying to figure out why I couldn't interact with things in the bottom-right corner of my screen then realized it was because of an INVISIBLE ad window by PotPlayer, even though the only instances of it I have running are on a COMPLETELY SEPARATE DESKTOP (Win10 multiple desktops). Sorry, but that's totally unacceptable. Highly recommend AVOIDING any version of this app newer than 190621, not only to not reward this scummy behavior but because having an app secretly running invisible windows, with web content no less, is a HUGE security issue. Unfortunately, last time I tried out alternatives, I couldn't find anything as good. GOM Player was probably the closest, but it had a LOT of issues.
