Daum PotPlayer is a multimedia player designed to fulfill the users need of listening to their favorite songs and videos without being worried about compatibility issues.
The installation process has lots of steps to complete, such as selection of codecs to be installed, but it doesn't last more than 3 minutes.

As you run the program you face up a modern and enjoyable interface, one that has lots of customization options, including color theme selection or various skins.
Visually, the only downside that I found is the size of the playback menu buttons, which is too small, even when in fullscreen mode.

In order to play a file, whether is audio or video, all you need to do is select the file to be played and then press the play button.
The supported formats are numerous and various and include ones such AVI, WMV, MP4, 3GP, FLV, MKV for video files, and MP3, WAV, FLAC, AAC, APE for audio files.

Two cool features are the Hardware Acceleration, which provides maximum performance by using DXVA, CUDA, QuickSync, and 3D Viewing for enjoying a 3D experience in front of your PC.
It also supports various subtitle formats, such as SMI&SRT, Vobsub, Blu-ray subtitles or ASS/SSA animation.

In the end, DaumPotPlayer can be summarized as a smooth player, with various supported formats and innovative features that, in the end, offer an enjoyable experience.

After KMPlayer's demise (followed by apparent death and recently, rebirth as undesirable bloatware), Potplayer has taken its place. It's the KMPlayer that should have been but never quite was. Currently, it is probably the best all-round player for Windows, despite the lack of documentation combined with an overwhelming array of options. Less tech savy users can just keep default settings without getting confused by too many options and will find PotPlayer suiting their needs as well. Plays just about anything, so no need of manually installing codecs, except perhaps in very rare instances where unusual formats have been downloaded. If I was asked to recommend just one player, Potplayer would be it (though others like SMPlayer, GOM and, well, for those that like it, even VLC, are also worth having a look at. I prefer to have several players as fall-back options. Not installed but for this purpose ideal are portable versions can be copied to any folder on any disk, including portable drives that can be used on other computers away from home).
