Daum PotPlayer, developed by the Korean company Daum, is a fully customizable media player that comes installed with various codecs that enable users to watch audio and video files in any format. Because the codecs are already built in the application, users do not have to look for codecs online and install these manually. Users can take control over the display settings, change the player’s skins, and plug in their video capture devices to play the recorded files within. It is compatible with high-resolution video formats such as MKV, AVI, and MOV. The player has visualizations that the user can add to by downloading online. It also has support for subtitle files in SRT and ASS format, aside from the subtitles that share the same folder as the video.
The Daum PotPlayer has an intuitive interface with familiar controls. Users can toggle between full screen and normal mode and access the speaker and display options from the main window. Users can choose to set the player always on top of other applications, create playlists, adjust the audio equalizer, and take screen captures while a media file is being played. The application displays file information during playback, including file type and bitrate.
Daum PotPlayer has support for digital TV devices and recorders, so users can watch their recorded shows from their computers.
