The software market is crowded with multimedia players that can fit the needs
of all types of users, depending on what they require: out-of-the-box
installation, without the user needing to change anything, or the expert
approach, where each function needs to be configured. PotPlayer is an
application that supports both of these modes.
Upon setup, the beginners can press Next>Next>Next until the software is
installed, while the pros have the freedom of changing each option as they like,
such as the file associations they want to make, if any, or specify the exact
type of sound system they have.
Just as expected from any player, PotPlayer supports a wide range of audio
(including, but not limited to WAV, WMA, MP3, OGG, M4A, AAC, RA, FLAC and MOD,
and video (such as AVI, WMV, ASF, MPEG, M2V, MTS, DPG, WebM, AMV or DivX)
formats, but it also recognizes several playlist formats (like M3U, ASX, PLS,
WVX or CUE).
PotPlayer gives its users great control over its functions, allowing
modification of the video speed, adjusting the audio volume, decrease or
increase contrast and brightness. Also, several skins are available so that
users can match the appearance of their video player to the theme of their OS.
Expert users have the chance to learn the corresponding keyboard hotkeys for the
most frequent actions they make, to avoid opening menus and windows whenever
they want to change the window size or the frame width.
Another way to speed things up is to assign various functions to the mouse – the
more buttons it has, the more actions can be attributed to each of them.
PotPlayer is a comprehensive multimedia software that plays movies and display
subtitles in a seamless way, without asking too much input from users, unless
they specifically want to personalize it to their liking and modify its default
