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.
