Updating PotPlayer to the latest version:
Q) Why are my settings are lost after upgrading to the stable version of PotPlayer?
A) The English installer just deletes its presets called "Built-in DXVA/Self DXVA/CUDA/QuickSync Decoder" on each install! So if you change some settings of the "Built-in ...." presets and want to keep those settings on each install, go to F5 > configuration tab, click on rename button and enter a different name (then Apply & OK). To return your settings after stable version of PotPlayer installed, click to PotPlayer's icon on top left and select the related preset. Also the English installer will do not touch the "Default Configuration" preset.

Phones home on every launch to servers in the beautiful city of Seoul:
tiara.daum.net & get.daum.net

Otherwise, a very nice application. Pity I had to remove it, or set tiara.daum.net & get.daum.net as 127.0.0.1 in the Hosts file. I removed it, finally.

You know, I'd only see a problem with that if it was phoning home to Pyongyang, but I don't see a problem with it phoning home to Seoul.

I'd be close to agreeing with you if it weren't any message displayed at the start of a porn video warning and proposing to delay next warning within a week : the off-line video therefor tracked in real-time. Porn is bad, except when it enlightens

I like this player also, it's good, fast. Only thing is that the settings are hard to configure for a simple user. I was wondering, because I can not find the option, is there a way to set the player to prefer external subtitles?

Potplayer has been my main player for a few years now.

Only issue with it is occasional decoding glitches on certain frames in certain files (which display ok in VLC).

I've been using this compared to KMPlayer and GOMPlayer last time. Installed Windows 8 yesterday and installed KMPlayer instead (I totally forgot about PotPlayer)

They are not much different (assuming you only use them to play videos), but as the author said, it's in active development
