Tried it once, and didn;t know how to change video settings like Brightness, Contrast, Saturation etc... Went back to VLC.
I might try it again.

Easily the best video player out there right now.
As someone mentioned, the only real problem is that if you update from the program itself, you usually end up with the Korean version.

this is the best video player for windows out there. it's the little things that make it stand out and it supports hardware acceleration out of the box to which is a must for those of us with slower CPU's but have a GPU that can do hardware accelerated h264 video (i.e. DXVA acceleration)

p.s. i always do manual updates and i use the x64 version myself.

but there is some default settings that need changing like i am sure most people will want the video files to maintain their aspect ratio (i.e. keeps video from stretching)

EDIT: it appears this keeps resetting your settings on each update lately as the skin is reset back to the stock one etc everytime i update which gets old. so... Preferences > Playback > Aspect Ratio = (where it says 'CONTROL') switch to... "Keep Aspect Ratio (recommended)'. that will prevent any video files you play from being stretched.

also... ALT+H turns subtitles on and off.

This is a great video player, but I would disable the auto-updater. It attempts to change your home page (you have to disable this *every time* you update), you can't watch video while it's updating, and it sometimes installs the wrong language. Great video player, but I highly suggest doing manual updates only.

I just started using Potplayer last week and I am hooked!!

Its by far the greatest media player on Windows!

It even can playback True HD ans DTS HD to your receiver!

And the interface is fast and smooth!
