Absolutely stupid they removed HEVC software playback. MPC-BE supports this just fine! Oh well.

Review by IntelliMoo on Nov 18, 2019 Version: 1.7.20977 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 6/10




VideoHelp Admin: I reviewed back on 5th March 2019 that support for Windows XP had been dropped:
"It should be noted that Windows XP support has been dropped in versions AFTER 1.7.17508.
To use on Windows XP, version 1.7.17508 or earlier is required."

I'm not sure in which subsequent version it happened, but it seems support for Windows XP has since been added back - 1.7.20977 works absolutely fine with Windows XP.

November 2019, for new users - PotPlayer (born from KMPlayer) was originally made with the great code of MPC-HC player + parts of FFDSHOW audio-video filters. It's quite reliable (more bugs than MPC-HC), quite fast and light-weight (thanks to MPC-HC code!), with a lot of options. Very good use of system resources, video hardware acceleration implemented very well, usable on old computers (as MPC-HC!). It's used a lot in South Korea for PBS (Personal Broadcasting). Great configurability, smooth GUI, lots of external skins, the numbers of options can intimidate the average user, but everything works fine just with the default settings. BUT my advice is to use madVR as video renderer and Sanear as audio renderer. IMHO audio quality with Sanear Wasapi renderer is very good, articulate sound signature (similar to MPC-HC, much better than JRiver Media Center). Infact, MPC Audio renderer is the Sanear one implemented into the player. PotPlayer also has got a very good native support for online streaming services and videos, much better than MPC-HC + LAV Splitter + external youtube-dl. Fast opening, fast seeking, but some issues with Dailymotion videos (same for MPC-HC + internal LAV filters + external youtube-dl, no issues with MPC-BE + internal filters + internal webpage parser). VLC, from this point of view, remain unsurpassed (but the video and audio quality are poor). The internal splitter, video and audio decoder work very well, but LAV Filters are implemented in a more correct way respect to the standards. Possibility to use Avisynth and Vapoursynth scripts, implemented natively, without the help of FFDSHOW as for MPC-HC. p.s. Just a small but important tip. In the section Video - Color Spaces - YCbCr to RGB conversion use the 'Auto' function and not ITU-R BT.601. ATTENTION: as for November 2019, PotPlayer is bundled with adware, but You can skip it during the set up process. More important, it open two or three back-door internet connections to some korean (?) external server for telemetry functions, to send unknown infos about the home user. It's visible, for example, with the TCPView software made by the great Mark Russinovich - Sysinternals).

You can avoid any installation rubbish in Windows by adding the .7z extension to the download and unpacking with 7Zip. Just leave out the $0 and $PLUGINSDIR folders. This is not my standard player, but I just tried this and it works OK. MalwareBytes Premium didn't find anything untoward. Just an option to try.
