Daum PotPlayer is an awesome free media player for Windows. It can play nearly all media files without requiring additional codecs yet supports OpenCodecs and can install extra codec packs automatically. It's easy to use yet rivals complex open-source projects in features and options.


Lack of smartness

Cool player but missing small smart details.


1 ) flawless performance
2) very good video&audio processing
3) stable


1 ) double click is pause by default ( an asian habit, they prefer pausing with double click instead fullscreen)
2) Auto update notification disturbs play, it appears after you start watching and annoying a lot
3) Auto loading subtitle is not flawless like bsplayer, actually only bsplayer is capable of auto loading subtitles properly.
4) too many clickable menus, i mean so too many full with unnecesarry super stupid clicky settings everywhere, it's impossible to find settings really needed.

Are you looking features-rich media player, which at the same time has intuitive and good UI, nice design which not stuck somewhere in 2005, and at the same time lightweight? PotPlayer is totally for you. Look screenshot below. It uses less then 100MB while playing big video while, without lags, with tons of filters for video which making video much better. It support really million of different options which make your any video looks and sound like you like. It support 3d, it has good skins, and it support mostly ALL video formats. If you are looking for better MPC-HK or VLC alternative -> PotPlayer is your choise.

KMPlayer is dead as in dead, the original other left the development long time ago and its development has stopped, its developer however started another project called POTPLAYER, which is in my opinion KMPlayer improved+features.

PotPlayer is a comprehensive freeware video and audio player, that also supports TV channels, subtitles and skins. Done by the same Korean author as The KMPlayer. It works w/ madVR/HR/EVR and Reclock of course…it’s a much improved/faster version of KMPlayer, including ffdshow and some other stuff to connect to a Korean-only video/chat network. Plenty of features and rich customization. It gives its users great control over its functions, allowing modification of the video speed, adjusting the audio volume, decrease or increase contrast and brightness. Also, several skins are available so that users can match the appearance of their video player to the theme of their OS. Player contains internal codecs and there is no need to install codecs manually.

PotPlayer supports seamless playback (up to 1000 -one thousand – AVI/ WMV/ MKV/ MPG files at once, mixed containers are allowed), auto-resume on the last 200 opened files, has fully configurable XML skin files and also a D3D exclusive mode. Other key features include WebCam/ Analog/ Digital TV devices support, gapless video Playback, DXVA, live broadcasting.

PotPlayer supports almost every available video formats out there (such as AVI, WMV, ASF, MPEG, M2V, MTS, DPG, WebM, AMV or DivX) formats. Also supports a wide range of audio formats (including, but not limited to WAV, WMA, MP3, OGG, M4A, AAC, RA, FLAC and MOD), and recognizes several playlist formats (like M3U, ASX, PLS, WVX or CUE).
