The latest version now comes with an adware (Norton).

There are multiple bundleware versions with recent update. Also can install Yandex apps. And bundleware is switched on by default.

Someone mentioned in an earlier comment that there was an English version available, but the link they gave is now dead. Fortunately, however, the English version seems to have found a formal home at CodecPack.co who have have added it to their regularly updated collection of audio/visual software downloads:

http://codecpack.co/download/PotPlayer.html

Alternatively, it's also available at Softpedia:

[EDIT: The English-language version is now widely available for download at a variety of sites, e.g. AfterDawn, VideoHelp, MajorGeeks, CNet, Softonic, TechSpot, Softpedia]

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.

I love it for its start-up speed; and hope that in future it doesn't follow KMPlayer's suit.

No regrets so far.

the question immediately comes up, do all of these apps have access to a db server to look up metadata
it would be ridiculous if not, but sometimes you never can tell

PotPlayer is the best media player I've ever used on Windows. It's fully-skinnable and plays anything I throw at. I only wish it were multi-platform. I haven't had any issues with it installing malware or ads.

An all-in-one solution with no need for any additional codec installation and plenty of features, from the original author of the excellent KMPlayer, this is the continuation of the project under a new name.
As klischee says in his comment, it is much more actively maintained than the KMPlayer is now, and there are unofficial translations available.

There are inofficial translations out there. For actual english ones, you can follow this thread at doom9 (visit last page). http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=148745

I think this player beats The KMPlayer. It's written in C (not Delphi like KMP), which causes it's a lot faster. It has much less bugs than KMP, and is in a very active, fast development, while the new developers of KMP doesn't update their player. Why the hell they bought it when they don't maintain it? Let's hope there are official translations for Daum PotPlayer one day.
