Latest linux version. Runs in Crossover. Make sure to install all optional dependencies.
Difficult to install, but if you have the right DLL overrides and Bottle it can work with tweaking.

Pot player could be one of the best video players ever, but just too many bugs, and poor documentation, with almost zero support.
I still cannot simply sign in to Forum any more, will not accept simple my documented orig info, or password, p-player reset does not work in forum either. Tried re-registering, but keeps asking for registration code, but none given. So cannot post my hot video crossfade features requests or make new forum inquiries, but had never received any forum replies on my orig inquiries either, when forum access did work.
None of the pot player Email contacts or developers bother to reply to any inquiries or problems, and nothing really works smoothly with this player.
I have been using windows pcs, video editors and forums for many years, have never experienced so many problems,, and lack of support like even this latest potplayer program update, which again could be great, if not for all the headaches .

**As many are now using potplayer for their many video playlists, not just audio, Still Could not find any simple Video crossfade, or video fade out options, this feature needed mainly at end of video downloads and MP4 clips playlist, so do not have to use an addtl editor program,to edit and re-encode just to fade out video at end, instead of all cut or trimmed videos ending abrubtly, which looks terrible. Why no simple video crossfading options.
Cannot find any way at all to do this in Potplayer with even internal or external effects or plugins to crossfade video & audio. So all mp4 videos in potplayer video playlists, can transition automatically smoothly like similar video and audio programs/players.

**(One good thing is that pot player (does appear) to be at least updated somewhat regularly, just was hoping there was some preset options, so that all audio and video can play automatically in best or max quality at all times, (Auto removing or fixing video/audio problems after pot player analyzes all media played) so we do not have to keep tinkering and testing just to always play all video & audio in max quality,with little or no audio clipping or feedback .)

** Also Still trying to find any option in Potplayer, like similar players have, the option to save loaded Online youtube videos etc as MP4 to my PC or external drive.

**Why still no similarly equipped features for android with potplayer yet.

Again,even though it has great potential as a player, too many bugs, and poor documentation, with very poor support. So even though they do update it, and add new features, but this player is still missing a few superhot video features especially, and by potplayer developers just slapping together quick updates and new features, but without good documentation or support, it is not really making this player much better, with just more problems, but very little support.
I would much rather pay a few dollars , and have better documentation, and at least some working support, so do not keep wasting so much time trying tinker, and get pot player to work properly.
Hope they keep improving in the badly needed Video/audio enhancements and features though!
(Rated 2.8 out of 5 stars) for now.

Block it with your firewall to stop the update nag.

The latest versions have a noticeable lag on starting up on my older laptop. I was using an older version (unsure which) but uninstalled it. I installed 1.6.52515 but now find that EVERY time I start a video I get a nag screen asking whether I want to update to the latest version.

Do I want to check every time or every week? Well never actually. There is a setting for this in Prefs>General. I set that to never but still every time I start Potplayer the same thing. It doesn't seem to save the setting.

This is NOT cute when the latest versions aren't ideal for you. Hopefully I can keep going back until I find a build which doesn't do this.

@tuco76
"I assume they notificate only for stable versions anymore, at least concerning LAV-Filters and PotPlayer, prolly due to the almost daily releases."

I got a notification for 61097, but not after. Either something's broken, or videohelp decided to limit the number of notifications for updates.


""Directly convert if possible (recommended)" , interesting ;)"

Could it be that they realized that butchering the video is not the best option to go as default? :)



Jun 20, 2016 Version: 1.6.59347 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I mentioned the same issue on LAV builds, there's been a notification mail for every beta/nightly build, until few weeks ago.
I assume they notificate only for stable versions anymore, at least concerning LAV-Filters and PotPlayer, prolly due to the almost daily releases.

That's just guessing though, some admin might enlighten us.

@mzso: BTW concerning that Colorspaces->color conversion issue that you adressed months ago, selection/drop down menu is changed from previous: "Direct Conversion (not recommended)" to:

"Directly convert if possible (recommended)" , interesting ;)

Can you please make it so that the focus of the keyboard controls returns to the video once you click on a file in the playlist? It used to be like this. It changed after one of the updates. Now once you click a file in the playlist and it starts playing, you have to click the video area to focus the keyboard controls so that you can use the keyboard controls again.

@cdburn: in addition to AllisOne's good advice, regarding your register prob you might try using another email adress (E.G. gmail.com).

Positive thing I noticed in recent versions, .pgs subs seem to play nicely by now. In previous versions they got stuck occasionaly. Switching to x64 version worked slightly better on that for me, by now seems all solved.



Feb 3, 2016 Version: 1.6.58402 64-bit OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Hi AllisOne,

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I allways download additional codecs.

I found the mistake in the S/PDIF pass through witch for some mysterious reason has being changed.
All is OK and works fine now.
Thanks again for your help.



Feb 3, 2016 Version: 1.6.58575 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Post questions here: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplayer-Generic-Current-issues-development-bugs

I've just checked both versions. Everything seems OK. All 4 internal/built-in audio codecs (FFmpegMinimum, dtsdecoderdll, OpenCodecUnity and FFmpeg) are working and external LAV as well. Do you download additional codecs at the end of installation (your firewall might block it)? Have you checked what splitters/codecs your player is using during playback? Is the Pass Through (S/PDIF, HDMI) for DTS disabled/enabled (depending on where you send the audio)?



Feb 2, 2016 Version: 1.6.58575 Beta OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Hello and sorry for my very bad english

Since beta version 1.6.58560, Playing a MKV file with a DTS sountrack give no sound.
Playing MKV file with MP3, AC3 and AAC sountracks works fine.
Last beta version 1.6.58575 have same issue.

Is somebody have noticed this ?

I try today to register to the PotPlayer forum but failed.

I just still find the setup a little basic. Would be nice that in case of previous versions installed, this was detected during the setup so you don't have to select the shortcuts, file association, additional codecs, etc every time you upgrade.

@ AllisOne

Thank you very much for your suggestions : I have deleted a couple of things and reinstalled PotPlayer and now all is OK.

Curiously, I didn't thought about doing this maybe because I seldom uninstall software.

All is OK now with the version 1.6.56209



Oct 26, 2015 Version: 1.6.56209 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



@ Sputnik55: is there any particular reason you use 64 bit PotPlayer? (I'm sure you know you can use x32 apps on x64 OS). Wherever I go they advise to use x32 version and newest beta. PotPlayer x32 is updated much more often and I guess your x64 version informs you about those x32 updates.

Or you can try to do a clean install: uninstall PotPlayer, remove all folders from Program Files and Users - [Your profile] - AppData - Roaming - PotPlayerMini (+wherever else you'll find its files and folders). Just in case you can backup those folders somewhere else and Export Current Presets from Preferences window (be aware it will copy all foregoing errors). When doing a clean install you will need to set all the prefs anew.

PS. I don't think you'll find any PotPlayer developers here. You can message him - Kang here: ahahlive@hanmail.net and hope he answers :-)
And it's better to ask for help at videhelp forum, for example here: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplay ... pment-bugs

@ Royalstar

Thank you for your suggestion, but I don't use Windows Firewall, I work with COMODO Firewall.

Also, there is no use to block the internet connection of Pot Player because it is not the internet connection which has to be blocked but the window which opens up to say that there is a new version available when 1) it is the latest version which is installed and 2) I expressly say to Pot Player not to check for updates in the Preferences.

Also, I have checked for an exe file which would belong to Pot Player and which would clearly indicate that it is used for the updates and I found none.

The update functionality seems to reside inside the PotPlayerMini64.exe file and it would really not be a good idea to block this one.

Do you know which exact exe file or else should be blocked ?

Thank you.



Oct 21, 2015 Version: 1.6.56209 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Hi Sputnik55
Block it in Inbound and outbound Windows Firewall and that's it.
No more notifications.



Oct 21, 2015 Version: 1.6.56209 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Each time I open up PotPlayer a window appears which is telling me that there is an update available.

First, I have the last version, so there is no need to tell me that there is a new version.

Second, in PotPlayer's Preferences, I have told PotPlayer to never automatically check for updates.

Because of these flaws, I have been obliged to install an old version of PotPlayer (v 1.6.47995) to avoid this problem.

Could someone from PotPlayer check this problem please ?

Thank you.



Oct 6, 2015 Version: 1.6.56209 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

"ConverterCrazy
What I learned from a website of PotPlayer's Polish translator is:
(Google translator with a few corrections) It is associated with granting the certificate for PotPlayer by VeriSign. Therefore, at specified intervals CRL is checked online via Windows CryptoAPI.
CRL (Certificate Revocation List): [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revocation_list[/url]
Without an Internet connection, PotPlayer will wait for a response from the Akamai network (CDN). So, do not reject calls from Akamai (try to change your firewall settings). I'm not sure if it's only reason that you have to wait those few / several seconds to turn on.

Certificate confirmation and expiration status:.
Right-click on PotPlayer.dll (.exe) file -> Properties -> Digital Signatures tab -> click Details -> click View certificate -> Details tab -> Extended error information
PotPlayer has now increased protection against adverse effects. Because of growing popularity of PotPlayer it becomes a victim of hacking and Some antiviruses notify that its files are suspicious/infected.
Original link: [url]http://potplayer.pl/viewtopic.php?p=5263#p5263[/url]

A solutions proposed by one user (I'm not sure how it might influence Windows security in general) is:
Disabling CRL checking on Windows level proved to solve the problem of certificates:
Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> click Security -> uncheck Check for publisher's certificate revocation.
* please do this only after installing and running PotPlayer - Windows must at least once download/check certificate.
Now PP loads immediately.

P.S. I'm not sure if it's only reason PP connects to the internet

Can someone please throw some light on this?

Thanks.

I made a mistake, in my last message I mean for the Context Menu in Windows, there's no option to tag edition in this way. I remember I could do that in JetAudio.

Man PotP should have a tag editor for audio files, PotP is the most complete media player i've ever seen, cant be belive there is no option for it.

Again, sorry my english

@cicak: I've noticed the same with a few last betas. Thanks to Comodo Firewall warning I suspect the culprit might be PotPlayer's desire to connect to external IP: 23.43.75.27 (Akamai Technologies European from Holland). It's a new "feature" apart from a few "old" IPs that PotPlayer wants to talk to even if 'Auto check for updates' is set to Never. The old ones don't seem to affect PotPlayer that way.

This is the best Media Player I have ever come across and used, it plays anything I throw at it. The best part is that you don't need to install codecs, Potplayer has its own codecs built in which covers everything (Well everything ive tried playing with it.)

If your looking for a player then look no further this is the program for you.

All 1.6 versions consumes 100% of CPU during seeking when thumbnail preview on nav. bar is enabled, I returned to v1.5.39659 and the navigation with preview enabled works perfect.

@ mohsein: plz post further questions in the PP-issues/support thread.
http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/353738-Potplayer-Generic-Current-issues-development-bugs/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:

first of all, sorry for my bad english
i just want to say that is there any way to show thumbnail of flac files. i mean that when i tagging my mp3 and some other files, it shows their cover(thumbnail) but for flac files, it shows nothing.
I'm so grateful to you if you tell me that this problem is the nature of flac files or it is just a bug that can be solved
finally Thank you very much for your great software

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.

@ConverterCrazy

Did you ever get your MKV playback issue fixed?

If you have not already done so just just send a an e mail with a download link of the MKV file with the issue to ahahlive@hanmail.net

And I a sure you more then likely they will fix it in one of the next few updates! :)

@ 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.



Jul 8, 2014 Version: 1.6.48575 OS: Windows 8 Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



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: 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.

well . i'm using win7 ultimate 64 bit cpu AMD X4 - Graphic Nvidia 9600 GT - Ram 4 GB DDR3

right know i'm using this version PotPlayer1.5.44465-x64 and it barely uses any of my CPU

but when i'm using the new version for playing HD Movies Cpu usage is 16

whats the problem ?
how do i fix it?



Jun 11, 2014 Version: 1.6.47995 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 10/10



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.

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.


Apr 15, 2014 Version: 1.6.46599Upd OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



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..

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.

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.

PotPlayer ALL VERSION wont play .OGG or .MP3 stream.

Solved problem to play mp3 sream ( Ex http://82.78.193.157:8800/ ) by instaling LAVFilters at https://code.google.com/p/lavfilters/downloads/list .

BUT ogg stream stil not play in PotPlayer ( Ex http://82.78.193.140:18000/infinit64.ogg ).

The ONLY and SINGEL player whoo play .OGG stream was Media Player Classic - HC ( MPC-HC ) instaled trugh XP-Codec-Pack-2.6.1 .

Any sugestion to play OGG STREAM in PotPlayer ??

Maybee the OWNER of the player ken resolve this issue....

Also i try Ogg DirectShow Filters v0.9.9.5/LAV Audio Decoder with LAV Splitter Source and NOTHING.

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.

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.



Oct 1, 2013 Version: 1.5 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

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...;)~

Hello,

I have been trying for like well over a year now to contact in english the Potplayer developers about an issue with a MP4 file that plays with audio but no video. And the same MP4 file plays fine in VLC Player,SMPlayer and even Windows Media Player. However Windows Media Player Classic also plays without video.

Any ideas?

Suggestion: Make the playlist/albums searchable like VLC

as in, when you type characters it narrows the playlist/album down based on what you typed

@bartslol

« @Plx start in default aspect ratio isn't bug, do it as you want and export your preset/settings, so you don't have to configure it every time you install »

What I meant is that ‘Keep aspect ratio (recommended)’ should be the default, and if not the ‘(recommended)’ should be removed.


« It do opens simmilar files when exists a similar named file on the same folder, you must try a reinstall »

The function doesn’t work well, it’s very random. It doesn’t consider a list of files with numerically ordered as always similar for instance. Try with these filenames if you are not convinced (tracks of the album The Dark Side of The Moon, Pink Floyd):
01-speak_to_me.flac
02-breathe.flac
03-on_the_run.flac
04-time.flac
05-the_great_gig_in_the_sky.flac
06-money.flac
07-us_and_them.flac
08-any_colour_you_like.flac
09-brain_damage.flac
10-eclipse.flac
Each track is opened independentely, except for track 3 and track 8 which are detected by Potplayer as similar, how consistent!


« detect durations won't work for online streaming, always worked for me in other formats »

I didn’t talk about right-click–Detect durations in the playlist, but about the playlist setting ‘Auto detect file durations’, please read carefully.


« Man are you crazy!
Suggest stuffs for it, instead of reporting errors where there is no one »

I wrote just before my last post:

The only 2 big things that are missing for being used as default audio player are:
— gapless AUDIO playback (I can’t understand why there is gapless video but not audio.);
— display of tags (The main window displays the filename instead.)

So please read carefully.

I would like to capture frames from the video. However, when I chose the PNG picture-format, the color space is not the same as I see on the screen. (therefore the quality is much worse) The capture in JPG and BMP formats are in the correct color space.

Can you solve the PNG wrong color space problem?

Thank you!

Also, I’ve noticed 3 bugs:
— the file open method ‘Open similar files together’ doesn’t work;
— the playlist setting ‘Auto detect file durations’ doesn’t work;
— the control ‘Keep aspect ratio (recommended)’ is not set by default (‘Do not keep aspect ratio’ is the default instead).

@MagakoS, do you smoke, you can bookmark many places you want, and still can load them for every video you've watched.
Easily save and load using shortcuts P and H for the video you're watching.

To Daum / Potplayer developer - have you considered setting up a forum for Potplayer to be discussed?

There are many free hosted phpBB forum providers such as www.phpbb3now.com - Otherwise perhaps a even a user-run forum could be created if developer would be willing to read it every now and then.

The main problem is the Daum site is all in Korean. There is no english place to discuss or give feedback to developer. But there are many English users! Please set up a forum as it would be good for the software and community as a whole.

Is it possible to save bookmarks for different videos. For example, suppose you are watching a video, save a few bookmarks, load another video, save a few bookmarks, you decide to go to a bookmark for the second video, the video is loaded and resumes at that bookmark ? From my experiences bookmarks are only saved for one video, actually, come to think of it, it may save for multiple bookmarks, but it doesn't allow me to categorize the bookmarks per video.


Jun 19, 2013 Version: 1.5.36205 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Guys, would be great if we could reach the developers to give them a few suggestions... Do you know how?

For instance, the default skins included are a complete joke... They make the player look cheap, outdated and ugly. They don't include a single "acceptable" skin! Check two simple I've been using:

http://i2.minus.com/iUS1wSrb1dwge.png
http://i1.minus.com/ibcSmg5uR5QKDR.png

These 2 are both light and simple; acceptable at the very least. Both have Windows Native menu design... I'm using the normal Segoe UI Regular 9px and I've got piece of mind.

Otherwise, great player. Additionally, I can confirm when I close the player, it hangs for 4-5 seconds, but this happens only on x86 version. With the x64 you don't face the same hanging. Just keep it in mind.



Jun 3, 2013 Version: 1.5.37776 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Pros ¬¬¬
- Really good rendering quality for both a/v, I've never seen like that b4, for EVR(amazing) or even in Automatic option, so fast and responsible, even in my Celeron 1.8
- Changing skin color automatically is so cool.
- Man, you should add support 2 download from OpenSubtitles.org's ISDB, seems like you forgot that coz it has so good subs options. It could suggest to look for srt in db if there is no one. Subs over VMR, I can easily set bellow the movie. Appreciated.

Cons ¬¬¬
- I couldn't export profile setting to live pp, real bad thing since I can do it easily in mpc-hc.
- It doesnt supports MiniLyrics, even if I select Minilyrics opt in Vis, but it does with .lrc files. Lyrics support is biggest miss in most of known audio players. And the one built-in on JeAudio does't work anymore. It would be cool if the lyrics changes by itself when listening from radios stations like 181.fm, 181 should come with the next versions.
- Automatic video rendering, it's causing too much slow, I thought each instance was free and independent of each other (about using built-in plugins at the same time) or is it some kind o bug. I can't open them both with same quality and the subs becomes different.
- No way to see 2 or more subtitles like in JetAudio, currently I can do that only by adding VobSub filter (I do this in other some hard way, opening the Sub Explorer during playing, but I lost many scenes)

Suggestions ¬¬¬
- Doesn't have option to see YouTube videos just copying url address, u have to get the full direct link, it could be like smplayer w/ a panel for searching. Such a miss 4 mpc 2.
- We could save settings, like playlists and everything in new Live PotPlayer, after login.
- It would be great to play the file in current playlist direct to another instance, a right click and then >>Open in another ppm. I have movie and audio/radios playlists aside of each other, cool if if I could open them separately, easy like that.

I hope you consider my add here, because it comes from the heart, for such a great work you've done. I just read the PP history, so much progress since the first version.

Hi everyone,

I've been using PotPlayer for some time now and I love it except for one small flaw that bugs me. When I double click a file it opens in a new playlist which is ok, but the playlist I last opened doesn't start with the last file I played anymore but from the beginning. The other playlists are not affected by this, and they will open with the file that was last played.
Can anyone help me with this?

@leecherman - Thank you. I tried it and can confirm that when I went back down to v1.5.36421, the application closes immediately (properly) again. On the same WinXP SP3 x86 machine - the newer versions hang for between 3-10 seconds on the taskbar before closing.

Also, I recently tried KMPlayer (this author's former project) and PotPlayer is much better. KMPlayer was taking 45% CPU whereas PotPlayer takes 15% CPU for the same files playing at same resolution.

If only the author can investigate what happened in the closing script after v1.5.36421. Someone please inform the author of this closing bug in his native language (Korean).

I LOVE PotPlayer, But I've noticed that it can't handle *.FLV files that well lately. It opens them, but if I try to jump ahead in time (while looking at tutorials), it freezes and doesn't respond. I wish this was fixed as I currently have FLV set to open with VLC instead.

@robertcollier4
Yes it's does in all version above version v1.5.36421
So if you like the new thumbnail previews use this version v1.5.36421



Apr 11, 2013 Version: 1.5.36421 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



New versions of this hang on shutdown. When closing the app, it freezes for about 5-10 seconds before closing on Windows XP. Does anyone know why this is and how to fix?

This didn't used to happen with previous versions (but I like the new versions for the feature "Display thumbnail previews on nav bar").

Great player. Once you set it up, which is not that easy, you get optimum experience.
I use it with LAV CUVID filters, combined with SVP, with Bahgravi skin.

This app is more than a great app.

But after upgrading from v1.5.36421 it's hang in the background for a few seconds when closing it.

So i will stay with v1.5.36421 :)

To be better it needs to have multi-subs support, additional VSync Renderers like mpc-hc, and the option to dl subtitle from opensubtitles isdb. And also option to download and show lyrics (LRC), or some way to integrate it with MiniLyrics. I'm using the beta version from videohelp website, because it's in english.

I couldn't configure it to use external "ffdshow dxva", in that way it shows 2 subtitles on the same movie.

I really like it for audio/streaming, its equalizer, the speed,, so I moved all formats into it instead of mpc-hc, that I've used for a long time because of dxva, but the quality and speed here is supreme, much over than VLC or JetAudio, just need some adjusts to make it perfect.

this beta release (1.5.36073) has audio and subtitles sync problems for me..and some video parts not shown properly..(some scenes turns "black screen"..-the following s01e06)..so i have uninstalled it..and back to stable release.(no problem with previously beta)..


Mar 13, 2013 Version: 1.5.36073 OS: Windows 8 Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



I used to use KMPlayer which was excellent and was my default media player, but that became aged after the dev stopped developing it. Then PotPlayer came along from the same dev as KMPlayer and again its excellent, it took a little while to learn my way around it as it differed slightly to KMPlayer but once i had it then became my new default player.

It has always served me well and plays anything i play at it and also is easily configured to take advantage of DXVA which is a must when playing 1080p vids as the GPU can take on the load instead of the CPU. It comes with all the codecs / filters built in which ive never had the need to use others, the same goes with splitters which are good but i prefer Haali splitter. After installing Haali its a breeze to configure PotPlayer to use it.

I have always recommended PotPlayer to anyone who asks me whats the best app to play media with and will most likely always will as it has frequent updates.

So if ur in the process of finding a new or replacement media player i cant recommend PotPlayer enough. I Highly recommend PotPlayer to anyone looking for a complete standalone media player, whether you are a beginner or advanced PC user PotPlayer will accommodate your needs.

A great media player!

Can't disagree that it's probably the 2nd best player for all media.

It will never be the best as it can't display 2nd subtitles.
The old KM Player which is v1439 that I'm currently using with LAV filters is and will be the author's best ever work. Displaying the 2nd subtitles on top/bottom of the video is important as we fancy watching non English videos or English videos with small parts of foreign audio in it.As one of my family is hearing impaired, displaying English subs is almost a necessity.

Are there any other players out there that can do this for MKV?

I doubt it.

Update: Having been using 1.5.34665 x64 for a while now, I have found...

- Sped-up plackback (like 1.3x) still adds an annoying reverb to the sound.

- When playing a .wtv file that is a digital-tv recording by Windows Media Center, and there are two audio tracks #0 and #1, it always selects the #1 track (center only) instead of the #0 track (full 5.1).

- It's digital-tv support is still lacking. While it does work, the channel numbers are completely out of whack, and the app crashes itself (no Windows error, it's its own crash dialog) when it is nearly done a channel autoscan. Oh well.

- Oh, and there's no beta updates for the x64!

Having grown increasingly frustrated with MPC-HC (and some "BE" variant of it) when it could not play a seemingly normal .mp4 that Avidemux would load and play; and hating how VLC just doesn't seem to use acceleration properly (making it impossible to watch hd-tv recordings); I decided to give the great PotPlayer a try again (last time was about a little over a year ago).

It definitely works better for me now (some quirks are gone), and it plays the file the other 2 couldn't. It has all the customizable amazing features I like to be able to control, and works very well so far. I don't know if the tv card support works properly yet, may try that eventually.

This is arguably THE BEST player in the known UNIVERSE. The author is the one who created KMPlayer, after PANDORA took KMPlayer, he left the development of KMPlayer (no wonder why KMPlayer SUCKS now) and created PotPlayer. I gave it a 9, only because it takes a little effort to set it right for your needs. Other than that it's PHENOMENAL. Here, just compare this too shots I've taken with KMPlayer and PotPlayer rendering a anamorphic MKV.

KMPlayer: http://www.img4up.com/up2/52533546193347013437.png

As you can see, it failed to recognize the correct aspect ratio and look at the colors and how washed out they are.

Now, on PotPlayer: http://www.img4up.com/up2/54898198210130963540.png

See, it recognized the correct aspect ratio and the colors are gorgeous.

*I'd like to re-write my comment, since, the previous had been cut unexpectedly.

This player is using the lowest resources I've ever seen! For instance, for an MKV 720p file it uses less than 3% CPU utilization ( i5 2500 @1.6Ghz - idle mode ) and less than 3% GPU utilization ( AMD7950 @501Mhz - Video Mode )! It's amazingly resources-friendly.

One problem I have; I can't find how to make it stop playing all files in a playlist... I'd like to play one file and then stop. My inefficient "workaround" is to: "Remove -> Remove All Unselected Items". I'd appreciate a little help!

Also, I'd really like a fully Windows native Theme. Currently it has an old glossy style on the main window and an older theme on the options window. It's looks a bit messy.

Anyway; Great player overall.

After being a Media Player diehard for years, I finally switched all video playback to PotPlayer. Frankly it plays everything, even the videos that play on VLC but not Gom and MPC-HC but not VLC, etc. I did have to do a litle customizing to keep the screen size constant, the aspect ration the same and several other settings but PotPlayer has so many settings that can be set and is rather easy to set up, no matter what you may wish. Now I can play ALL my test videos with one player and still get subtitles in VOB, sub/idx, SSA/ASS, SRT, external with same name, DVB and Teletext besides. I love it.

Works very well - I would like to warn people, though. DL it by clicking on "Download from our site (direct link)" and NOT by going to the maker's home page. If you go there, you'll get a Korean-language installer with no English option that will also install bloatware on your system. Make sure you get the installer that's in English!

Only 2 words to describe the player
"BEST PLAYER".
Nothing else needs to be said.

I do have a request for a new feature
In the new updated version of VLC player they included one new feature i.e. "SUBTITLE SPEED" by which we can change the fps speed of the subtitles.
I would like to see same feature (or ADVANCED), if possible, in DAUM POTPLYAER.

thanking you in advance.

Plays 1080i perfect on my older Windows XP Pentium PC. VLC and MPC-HC doesn't do that. Constantly updated. Plenty of features. Free. I stopped using KMPlayer because I thought that VLC and MPC-HC had gotten better. Now PotPlayer surpasses them all.


Oct 9, 2012 Version: 1.5.34289 OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Good player that includes Blu-Ray playback but the drawback for me is the lack of remote functionality. MPC-HC is compatible with the Microsoft remote and it also plays Blu-Ray so that is still the preferred player. Also none of these players can play Microsoft Recorded TV files with audio and subtitles so you still need WMP.

One of the best player. My cpu usage is almost below 7% whereas others had 15% and more. It can use DXVA in all format. Some functions are from MPC and SMPlayer (so superb!!). However, the resize setting is not working for me. It resizes vids to screen res at fullscreen :(

Unfortunately it's still not possible to set an audio delay that sticks even when the player is closed and started again. MPC-HC supports this and I don't understand why the audio delay can't stick over the sessions in PotPlayer...

If video playback is pushed to the second screen, could controls, Playlist etc. be kept on the main screen. This is a great, I mean GREAT device that could readily be used to play media in live shows, just no menus or alerts could be allowed.

I tried using this for dvd's last night and the playback is perfect but I'm afraid I'm having the same issue as another comment posted. I can't get rid of subtitles. They just stay on. If I try closed caption, both sets are on simultaneously. I tried setting the splitter with LAV or Haali and both play fine but the subtitles don't even show they are there. I think maybe it's a setting I'm not getting right but I wish it was a simple as MPC HC where you just load it up and the default subs are off.

MKV and BR playback are perfect. No issues there.

@lordfrikk: and you are an asshole for calling me dumb! You are a self-righteous idiot with absolutely no idea of anything!

The procedure you describe did NOT work in the last versions. Just the latest version from Feb 8th seems to handle the subtitles somehow, but still with major drawbacks! It shows the subtitle track even if it is not the "default" track, doesn't recognize and auto-enable forced subtitle tracks, doesn't include a "no subtitle" in the cycling with ALT-L, etc. It's unusable! With Haali Media Splitter it works fine though.

@Frasier: You are just dumb. Either hit Alt+L to switch between subtitle streams or right-click the video, then in the Subtitles submenu choose Select subtitles. Hard, eh?


Feb 3, 2012 Version: 1.5.30857 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Unfortunately, the internal source/splitter for Matroska files (mkv) does not seem to support selecting the subtitle track. The player does display the default subtitles, but it's impossible to switch to another subtitle stream. The only work-around seems to be to install another splitter, like Haali Media Splitter. A bit inconvenient though, having to do this. But still a great player!

This program has serious inconsistencies regarding aspect ratios, and the built-in video processor only makes things worse. Notwithstanding, it's good-enough as a "dedicated" DVD-player, also there is a "TMT skin" which dresses PotPlayer with a "very-sexy layout", lol Lol LOL.

Hi
First I want to say this is the best player on the net today.& I tested all players around.
I have A Sony Handycam HDR-XR500E Video Camera.
When I play HD m2ts files connecting the camera direct to TV I can watch all my recorded & filmed sections continuously & smoothly with no pouses between the sections and parts.
When I copied my recorded video to my Hard Disk and play them from my Hard Disk,
the player pauses between each sector for 1 second with A black frame, which is very annoying.
I Must say that the PotPlayer does the shortest pouses,compare to any other players around.
I appeal to the PotPlayer Auther,Can You Please Fix It?
I Think you developed the best player around today & you can make it even better.

I have continually tried MPC HC to play HD videos but it consistently always gives me varying results. I mean it plays the videos but most of the time it freezes up. Out of frustration I decided to try this little player and it's just amazing at the HD video it does. It just works. I have some old HD m2ts files from a vacation lyin around on an external drive and MPC HC did the same thing..froze up. Played them in Pot Player and voila!!!! No problems. Played some mkv's and no problems. I haven't tried any Blu Ray's but we'll see what this can do.

Can't beat it...it works and its free

I was a fan of Media Player Classic Home Cinema but when HD videos came along I found that it would freeze and I could not play them properly with it without making the MPC-HC window much smaller. My PC is a few years old but I have quite a powerful system.

PotPlayer is the best media player I have ever used! It plays HD video content smoothly without any problems and thats in fullscreen. The GUI is smart and you can choose plenty of different skins for it. It plays nearly every video format you throw at it and works straight out the box. There are lots and lots of advanced options you can tweak if you know what your doing, if not leave them with the "Recommended" default settings.

Even if you are happy with your current media player, give PotPlayer a try out I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Recommended!

Through testing over 40 media players I came to love PotPlayer.

This is a cool player with briliant costomizational options.

The video/audio playback smooth and the quality is flawless.

One of the key features include, marking of already played files. This is only supportd in only some skins. I would have preffered it on all of them...

I would also like to request, blu-ray menu support and sterioscopic 3D movie support and convertability.
It would also be really good if all the skins (the ones that come in skin packs) and if all the windows were translated to english.

I have to amend my previous comment on PotPlayer... Another quirk I've found is for some reason, is plays .wtv files recorded by Windows Media Center from the digital tuner with completely out of sync audio. The other 2 most popular players (VLC and MPC-HC) play them fine.

PotPlayer does play .wtv recorded from my analog tuner fine, though.

the best overall player at the moment

I've tried most of the video players at one time or another, but have settled on PotPlayer for it's excellent performance and configurability. It also does a good job with streaming video, which not all players will.

IntelliMoo - I don't dispute that you have experienced problems with the TV tuner, but I just wanted to mention that I am able to tune analog channels with PotPlayer and my Avermedia M780 card. It does a good job, but I prefer DScaler because it 'remembers' my video size and offset settings.

PotPlayer is the best player around I have found in a long time, it's like a combination of 'Media Player Classic Home Cinema' and 'VLC media player' but with an actual modern look and feel. All the techy settings are there (like MPC) and more, and it has some special features (like VLC) such as speed-up playback with adjusted audio pitch.

The only problems I have with PotPlayer so far are:
- The speed-up playback with adjusted audio pitch: The audio sounds normal for the most part except it has like a reverb effect added for some reason. VLC's feature for this sounds completely normal.
- PotPlayer's TV card support actually works compared to MPC and VLC (both of which never did for mine), but it won't display a picture at all for the analog tuner (audio works), and it doesn't change channels correctly for the digital tuner (it did fine in one session but can't get it to again).

Videos started continuously stuttering in this version (1.5.29617). The previous version played fine.

I have been comparing potplayer beta to the newest vlc and mpc homecinema players and I must say the new potplayer beta seems to use less recources loads immediately and plays all the different file types flawlessly and in sync all the way up to 1080p resolution,and with the proper audio and subtitle settings automatically set.The default settings are excellent and they are competely customizable if you like to tinker...;)~

ASS/SSA Subtitle problem fixed after i disabled option 'Apply Default Style for ASS/SSA' it was enabled by default. probably due to last installed ver.


Aug 26, 2011 Version: 1.5.29490 Beta OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Really good Player for playing Anime.

but still have problem's with font size & style
PotPlayers settings forces its font size & style
on SSA/ASS subtitles.
I tried every setting change to prevent that.
I want Potplayer to use/adapt
SSA/ASS built-in subtitle fonts, font size, style & settings.
Instead of forcefully using font & its size set in Preferences.

Only SRT & UTF subtitle should use font settings in Preferences.
Its annoying to re-set font size everytime.
If My subtitle is UTF i set font size to 24
but when subtitle is SSA/ASS text becomes too small to read
resulting me to re-set font size to 36.

Vobsub works fine.

Except these problems
overall its a great Player :)
lot better than vlc

The 1.5.28025 posted is actually a beta version.
Nevertheless is quite a very good player, a system resources friendly, intuitive, easy to use, a viable alternative for the classics players...

Excellent Video Player. I was a big fan of KMPlayer before I came across PotPlayer. This player is very stable and plays back almost all formats very easily. The interface is cleaner than KMPlayer and the settings dialog allow the user to customize the player to his/her liking. Has plethora of useful features. Playback Quality is excellent almost as good as MPC with ffdshow ( As one can tweak ffdshow more ). Each update has made it more stable than before, plus it has 64-Bit version too which though not updated as often is excellent too.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED...



May 2, 2011 Version: 1.5.28025 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



This is like KMplayer but better. It has tons of features and settings just like KMplayer. The one big difference is that this player will allow you to quickly scan through any video format. you can drag the bar at the bottom to seek anywhere in the video and it updates instantly. I haven't found a video this player can not play. The best by far and I have tried just about everything out there.

useless media player which has no best features than KMPlayer , VLCPlayer,Zoom Player,Windows Media Player,it is a garbage of bad features


Feb 17, 2011 Version: 1.5.26923 OS: WinXP Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



I've been using this program for about 2 weeks now and have had virtually no issues, each revision has become more and more stable. I have stopped using KMPlayer and find this too be nearly identical (which it should be since it's the same author) only laid out a little neater; if not a little different as well.
I was not expecting to be blown away by it, and I'm not but for it's core functionality as an all in one player - that is very configurable - it's quite good and certainly faster on startup than KMPPlayer.

Disappointing replacement for The KM Player (same author). While it seems to play most formats, it lacks simple things like 100% zoom. It also changes the IE homepage to a Korean search engine, and attempts to alter the base search engine as well, all without asking permission first. To me, that is basically spyware behaviour.


Jan 12, 2011 Version: 1.5 (26392) OS: Windows 7 Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



Not as great like KMPlayer & VLCPlayer as it lacks many features of this two players and it`s audio equalizer is of very weak standard as bass & treble effects is very weak compared to KMPlayer & VLCPlayer , so it cannot compete with this two players


Jan 9, 2011 Version: 1.5.26392 OS: WinXP Ease: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value: 3/10 Overall: 3/10



Not quite there yet. Did not preserve the aspect ratio. And unlike KMPlayer I could not find any settings to change that. But it handled the avchd mp4 videos on my ancient computer with minimal stutter than the dozen other players I have tried so far.

I will wait for the next release.

This Player is a typical ALL-In-One-Player.
I always wanted a player like this and this one is definitely one of the best of all (vlc, kmp ["old version" of this player), mpc with ffdshow, smplayer and all other).

But the codecs are not the best and all of them have some problems, e.g. they don't decode H.264 in mov-Container properly (e.g. Clips from EOS 5D Mark II [but vlc can, but has DVD-problems]).

I like it, but don't expect too much from this player and all similar. Also PowerDVD 10 Ultra isn't my 100%-choice.


But as an Audio-Player I like AIMP very much. Try it :)
