PotPlayer.

There are plenty of multiformat media player programs out there, VLC being one of the most popular. But I've become a convert to PotPlayer over all the others, including over VLC. Superb!

I especially enjoy the "frameless" presentation option, which whether in windowed or full-screen mode totally eliminates the Windows window around the playing video and makes it seem to be floating on your desktop.

This is the source site for the English version of the program. At the top of the page is the latest beta version, but scroll down a bit for the latest stable/released version including the 64-bit version.

Note that this alternative download source provides a direct link to the developer site, which gives a Korean version.

No worries; stuff happens. It was kinda buried in that other string of posts. Thanks!

Daum Potplayer

Hi Shawn,

A free media player named Daum Potplayer has become all the rage. It can be downloaded from Download Daum PotPlayer | PotPlayer 1.6.49264 Beta in 32-bits and 64-bits versions. I have been using it for a week and it seems great.

It is not yet listed in this thread.

Hey Amarnath,

Would this be the same one below? The link you posted is a bit sketchy to me since it doesn't look like the official home page for the program.

HUH???

I posted a mention of PotPlayer just a few notches up, in post #493. Didn't it get seen??? I was talking about this very program.

I provided the download link from DVBSupport, which provides the English language installer version directly.

I also provided the download link from VideoHelp, which provides a direct link from the Daum developer web site, but in my experience the downloaded program is in Korean.

So unless there's a way to get an English version from the developer's site which I can't fathom, I'd suggest just going to DVBSupport for an easy link for 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The PotPlayer "beta" version link at the top of the page is only 32-bit I believe, so best stay with links to the latest stable version down a bit on the page which are for both 32-bit and 64-bit.

NOTE: right-click on the main area of the program for context menu, and select Preferences to get the customization dialog. Then select the General item on the left and check the "store settings to INI file" option, so that you can save your customizations. Each time you re-install the program it saves your existing PotPlayerMini64.ini to PotPlayerMini64.bak and creates a brand new default one. You can then delete the new default INI and rename the BAK version to INI, to save you the trouble of re-doing everything all over again.

Here is my own customized INI file, which you might want to start from. You can just overlay your installed version with mine (or save yours for re-name, if you don't like mine). I've turned off sub-titles playing DVDs, eliminated the Window "frame" around the playing video, made the video play in its true original size by default, but otherwise it's nothing unusual. Even with nothing showing except for the playing video, if you move the cursor over the bottom of the image or top of the image, the expected "player controls" will re-appear until you move the mouse away.

Global Potplayer
Hi Brink,

I downloaded Pot using your link.

It won't play Bluray -says "no audio and/or "video" found".

These play on my stand-alone Bluray player, so that's not the case.

It does play dvds.

If you right click, it says open Bluray, so I assume it is capabl;e of playing them.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Paul

I don't know Paul. I never used the program. I was just asking if it was the same program that Amarnath mentioned.

Thanks,

Do you know of any free players that do play Bluray?

Helo Shawn,

Yes they are the same. It is also known as the Daum Potplayer after the Company that created it. I tested the link that I had sent and it did take me to the applet's download page.

This media player is too good and can perhaps be included as Daum or Global Potplayer or just Potplayer
