Default Potplayer

Any1 else using potplayer ?
i just uninstalled kmplayer and installed potplayer
its a tad faster then kmplayer and has lots of skins pre installed

the only downside i have found till now is that thumbnails are not displayed
only potplayer's icon with file type is displayed

edit - im getting thumbnails for some mkv files but not for all
same for mp4 and avi

Whats the site for PotPlayer?

Is it a non-English site? I have seen mentions of PotPlayer on the site sometime, but I can't seem to find the site. If its a non-English site though, the link won't be allowed on the forum. You can PM me.

Although I mostly use Linux now, I too switched to PotPlayer on my Windows system a while ago and can't fault it

Potplayer is indeed a good player. It shows a visible better performance on 1080p MKV files on my media PC compared to VLC.

However, I am missing a skin or skin options for big screen usage. Looking at any Potplayer skin from a distance makes it very hard to read. I wish it would have an option like Winamp to double-size the skin (displaying it in 150% or 200%) so I can see what I am clicking from my sofa.

When playing MP3 files with embedded cover images I haven't find a way yet to display them.

I've not even looked at different skins, i just run it as it is out of the box, and i use JetAudio Free version for audio.....no particular reason except that i've been using it for years. Speaking as a former "vinyl junkie" i view mp3's as substandard no matter what i listen to them with.

Incidentally, this is what i use for vinyl. They haven't yet made the mp3 player as beautiful as this, nor will they i think.

I begin to use Potplayer. It seems great. Anyway, I am having problem to set the video to the original format. In other words: When I open video in Windows Media Player (for instance) the video is automatically set to original size. In Potplayer, the video is being showed "outstretched" and if I drag the window the video also can be "shrink". Does anyone know how to set Potplayer to run the original video size proportion? Thanks.

In preferences - playback - screen size - set screen size as x 1.0 [100% ]
In preferences - playback - aspect ratio - control - keep aspect ratio [ recommended]
hope this helps
