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.

English version available for download

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:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Video-Players/PotPlayer.shtml

[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]

that all unofficial links, check

http://www.dvbsupport.net/info/potplayer.html for changelog

and

http://www.dvbsupport.net/download/index.php?act=category&id=55 for english downloads

At the time of posting, the CodecPack.co link was the closest thing to an official site. However, you are correct, it appears the app is now primarily hosted at DVBSupport.net. However, as far as an "official" site goes, there isn't one -- DVBSupport.co and CodecPack.co are just video-oriented software download sites hosting many apps from many developers. The English-language version of Daum PotPlayer is an unofficial mod not developed by Daum. I've heard the English-language developer can be contacted via email (ahahlive[at]hanmail.net) and that's the closest thing there is to an official presence for the English-language PotPlayer on the net.

Ultimately, it's a moot point since up-to-date downloads of the English-language version of PotPlayer have become available from all the major software repository sites in recent months (opposed to earlier in 2013 when it was available solely at CodecPack.co and SoftPedia). For example:

The best video player (GPU support) and very stable and fast, made by the same developper of KMPlayer

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.
