Editors' Review

Daum Potplayer: It's probably not what you're thinking, whatever that is. It is, in fact, a free video player. We hear you say, "There are so many free video players; what sets this one apart?" Its built-in codecs handle most video formats, and you don't have to install them yourself. It has several levels of controls and settings, making the most useful commands easily accessible. It's attractive but also skinnable and customizable. It supports a variety of video devices, including capture devices like cameras, DVD and digital recorders, and both analog and digital TV, including channels.

Potplayer opened with its Playlist window displayed, but we could toggle it open and closed from the interface. This player has a full suite of familiar controls and counters on its interface, including full screen, repeat, shuffle, and volume, but you can also access filter and rendering settings, speaker options, and other settings from the main window. Right-clicking the interface or the program's system tray icon accesses an extensive main menu.

Under Options, we could set housekeeping and behavioral features such as On Top, Prevent Screen Saver, and shut-down at specified times. Clicking Control Panel opened a small, rectangular, tabbed box giving quick access to Audio, Colors, Caption, and Playback settings. The Audio settings include the optional equalizer, which itself offers an extensive menu of preset audio schemes. Likewise the color sliders made quick adjustments a snap. Things got even more detailed when we opened the Preferences sheet, which includes device configuration, network settings, and other advanced options.

When we opened and played a familiar video, we were surprised to see a distorted aspect ratio, which expanded and contracted as we dragged the window. The default aspect ratio setting seems to be Free, not Fit to Video, which is actually the program's recommendation. However, we quickly changed the settings, which restored our movie's proper presentation. The Playlist is part of the interface, not a separate window that can be placed separately, though that's a minor matter of preference. We certainly have no complaints about the Playlist's editing options. Daum Potplayer proved one of the more versatile freeware players we've tried.

"*** DANGER LOTS OF SPYWARE ***"

March 27, 2013  |  By misca1

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Seems to play a number of video formats

Cons

Does not play BluRay disks as advertised. At least not on Win7 Pro 64.

Installs 3 pieces of spyware (that I have found so far) without warning.

Tries to install yet another spyware search bar.

Summary

Download VLC player instead. It is much better, and installs no spyware.

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Customisable
Built-in support for nearly all codecs
Skinnable (DeviantArt has a few good ones)
Frequent updates
Light on system resources

Cons

Advanced settings. Some may find it confusing.

Summary

Make sure to download the English version and to disable auto-updates. Otherwise you're going to wake up to the Korean version one day.

"Comes bundled with adware."

December 17, 2012  |  By JohnnyMaximum

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Its probably an adequate video player.

Cons

I downloaded this and suddenly found adware installing itself on my computer. There was no box to untick and no mention of the bundled programs in the installer. Suddenly "freeridegames" and "we-care.com reminder" were installing. I uninstalled everything including this video player out of disgust. I can't recommend any download that comes with secret mandatory intrusive programs.

"Best All Around Player"

July 24, 2012  |  By zanzzz

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Plays everything
DVD playback quality
DFX compatible

Cons

Hard to find any!

Summary

I think I must have tried most of the players out there and found issues with every one of them. This is better than VLC, GOM, and other popular players. You can test for yourself or just settle for the best - PotPlayer!
