Is this still considered a Beta version?

Because it does say Beta in the about box.

I think this is a stable build, not beta.

They only update the x64 version only when its a Final release, otherwise only 32-bit versions get Beta builds.

I like almost everything about this player, except the built-in updater is garbage. I highly recommend disabling it.

The filters are surely not as good as FFDSHOW

You can go in options and choose the filters you want to use. If you like ffdshow you can use ffdshow.

honestly though... most any programs decoders are 'good enough' which PotPlayer is to as i think anyone saying anything else is pretty much nit picking as i think the differences would be minimal at the most.

VLC is overrated if you ask me as it's general functioning is not as good as Pot Player and Pot Player supports hardware accelerated h264 video out of the box where as VLC Player does not as it requires you to enable it to use it which should be on by default as it takes the load off the CPU and puts most of the work on the GPU.

and as i was saying... general rewind/fast forward etc just works better in PotPlayer.

only negatives of PotPlayer is that it requires configuring as some stuff like Aspect Ratio etc is not setup correctly by default.

right click open program and do this to fix Aspect Ratio...

1.Right Click > Aspect Ratio > Keep Aspect Ratio
then on that same screen make sure the 'Fit to Video (Recommended)' is checked.

doing that keeps the video properly displayed like it's supposed to be otherwise it can be all stretched etc and not displayed like it's intended to be.

p.s. seems like every update everything is reset back to default settings so i got to reconfigure all of that crap etc every time there is a new update.

One of the best if not the best video players for Windows!!

it's the gold standard as far as i am concerned as everything else is not as good as it's the little things that make it the best.
