@loin2kolpotoru: Thanks for the info! I have updated the entry and removed XP support.

I have personally tried to install latest version of PotPlayer on xp but it displayed error message PotPlayer only supports vista or later os.

Plus here we can see what is the last xp supported version -

@loin2kolpotoru: Any reference for this? The official website and a couple of places I search seems to indicate that it still supports WinXP.

Please update the entry potplayer is no longer xp compatible.

Can play interlaced videos at double speed which gives the "video" look as experienced on TV (Deinterlace Settings > Software Deinterlacing > Bob 2x frame). This feature has transformed video on the PC for me.

I extracted the 64-bit version and am rather confused at the different executables: PotPlayer64.exe, PotPlayerMini64.exe, PotPlayerMiniXP64.exe and PotPlayerXP64.exe.
What are they for? Which one is to be preferred?

Yes, confirmed with v1.7.1915.

creates HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DAUM\PotPlayerMini

Not stealth? Can anyone confirm?

I am seeing following key created repeatedly:

x32 version- 1.7.461
x64 version- 1.7.456
fire version for both- 1.7.456.0

I blocked all connects from the player + screensaver with Windows Firewall (using Windows Firewall Control).

This is arguably the best video player out right now as of February 2017. It beats Zoomplayer in terms of polish, features, and style.
