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.
