I've used VLC for years & it's mostly been a fine video player. But I guess, I'll give this ago anyway.

Does it play Blu-ray?

I will give this a try after seeing how people recommend it. I've been using Media Player Classic Home Cinema for a long time.

The only thing that I don't like about PotPlayer is that the updates require previous versions and there isn't a portable version as far as I know.

i like PotPlayer, and frequently swap it for another player
this time i installed SMPlayer, which supports just as much formats as this one, but has two more features that i find tempting:

1. built-in youtube player - you can look up and play youtube videos at the highest quality and at the fastest buffering speed

2. it has the ability to look for subtitles from a database if your movie doesnt have subtitles, or you want them in a different language


the only issue i found is that when the windows border skin is selected, the drawer menus are still in hangul

After update, some videos have no sound.
And it crashes when I clicks the stop button.
Rolling back to old version.

Yep, it's the little things that make this the video player to beat. i never understood why VLC Player seems to be more popular than this.

VLC supported all codecs out of the box at a time when codec packs bundled with adware were rampant on the internet. It was the go-to suggestion for people who were tired of fixing video problems.
