Updating PotPlayer to the latest version:
Q) Why are my settings are lost after upgrading to the stable version of PotPlayer?
A) The 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 installer will do not touch the "Default Configuration" preset.

I have a file that plays audio but get no video using the latest potplayer

Anyone know how to contact potplayer tech support in English?

Try using a different codec/filter. You can specify them manually, that's whats cool about this player.

This is getting better than KMPlayer. I used KMP for more than 6 years before switching to PotPlayer. It's amazing, I like it. Better than VLC for sure

it's been better than KMPlayer as it's basically updated more often and has original developer of KMPlayer doing Pot Player.

i like how it supports hardware accelerated h264 video by default and the simple things in how it operates etc.

p.s. only slight issue is some of the default settings need changing like aspect ratio etc but it's a minor thing overall considering how well the overall app works.
