Version 1.7.1 Update Notes

One reviewer observed that PotPlayer's quantity of options is "one of its biggest weaknesses. It has many different settings which unfortunately makes wading through the checkbox-laden settings menu kind of a pain" and that the options menu is "confusing". As of at least late 2019, PotPlayer began to be bundled with third-party software, causing concerns from PotPlayer's users community.

The installer gives the option to opt-out before the bundled 3rd party software is installed. Also of note, PotPlayer has now started showing popup ads on the lower right hand corner of a user's computer.
