PotPlayer Review

Sven Sorensen

A video player with an almost endless support of formats

A review of PotPlayer by Sven Sørensen

PotPlayer is one of those video players which includes a lot of functionality that one doesn't usually expect.

This video player is somewhat useful, includes many features and plays virtually any type of media file that you want to chuck at it. Regardless of quality or size, PotPlayer manages to play it back on your PC without worrying about which codecs or codec packs you may have installed.

Not only does PotPlayer include support for most types of multimedia types, but it also manages to play them back without a huge effect on CPU or memory usage. Another thing which this video player does it remembers where you last stopped on a movie, allowing you to continue watching something which was interrupted.

PotPlayer is fully customizable and allows users to view any type of subtitle format. It supports video and audio media.

In the end, if you're looking for an alternative to programs like GOM or VLC Media Player, this media player fits in nicely and generally exceeds expectations.

  • Play most audio and video formats
  • Supports playback of broken or incomplete AVI files
  • Resumes where playback last stopped
  • Supports external subtitle formats like SAA and ASS
  • Supports embedded subtitles in MKV, 3GP, MOV and MP4 files
  • Audio equalizer included
  • Adjust video brightness, contrast and hue
  • Supports user-made and downloadable skins
  • Keyboard shortcuts for seeking, zooming, volume, brightness, contrast and subtitles
