Wish check for update included beta versions. Decline the PUP! (a star off for that archaic inclusion)
The player was originally made with the code of the great MPC player by a very good korean developer, but as now (2020) PotPlayer has a stable development while MPC-HC is in maintenance mode, with just some small bug fixes.
Respect to MPC-HC or MPC-BE the korean player has much more settings and functions, faster and more precise seeking, timeline preview like YouTube that works very well, much better than MPC-BE.
The streaming of Internet videos is more reliable than MPC-HC or MPC-BE because PotPlayer by default use its own splitter and audio-video decoders. They're FFMPEG based like LAV Filters. But LAV filters are more optimized for disk content, not streaming.
Attention: as for April 2020 PotPlayer try to install unwanted PUP program during the set-up, but You can (and should) just click on ''Refuse' and everything is fine.
Yes, it does suffer a bit from feature overload and settings mess (some are even darn confusing), but it is definitely full-featured and offers many nice perks other players do not.
Just be sure to not install the PUP included in the installer!
Also takes a lot of disk space compared to, say, the fully equivalent MPC-BE.
Bundling a PUP in the installer is a drawback!

Its not come with aac decoder, so I suggest you download potplaayer opencodec, its available on their forum... I dont know the reason, but maybe because of the license.
Hope android version of it may also be available soon..
A lot of possibilities : I play for example DVD's directly from a player (on the PC), I upscale it to 1920x1080, I use the wonderful software DimtriRender to have smooth and beautiful pictures at 60fps.
I use LAV filtes in combination with MadVR. The result is much better than many expensive players you can find. You can adjust and what I want as I want and have access to many many features. Ideal to of course with Blu-ray or film in FullHD.
I do recommend PotPlayer: try it!
I mean, vlc is not bad, it opens every kind of video, but Potplayer goes way beyond that.
Its plethora of configuration options lets everyone tweak it and their video watching experience just the way they like it.
For beginners, as for professionals too.
No codec needed, but can be implemented as one wish, could not be more personally.
Attention - Do NOT download from any site !
Recommendation - Use 32bit version on x64 bit Windows too !
PS - Very often is upgraded and it is evolving very quickly!
