Please let us know, if developer reply.



Here his answer :

"What appears in the lower right corner is an advertisement."


I guess that we can't avoid this. :(
I prefered when there was an ad only at the installation.

We started with KMPlayer, then PotPlayer. We will move on again.

Bad news. Thanks for the info. :(

Developer don't understand, that for users from US/EU such ads are unacceptable.

Still don't know, why some users have that ad and some don't.

With the portable version of Potplayer, I haven't the ad.
This is a 32 bits version.

The versions I install are all in 64 bits.


For those who haven't this ad, do you use the 32 bits Potplayer ?

So you have the ad with the 64-bit version and don't have the ad with 32-bit portable version? Which versions exactly and from which source? Portable version from portableapps.com? It could be interesting, if the same version / number would be adfree as a portable version.

My version is 200908 1.7.21291 64-bit, no AD, Windows 10 2004 64-bit, Defender, EU region.

In Australia it's just a box that says 'potplayer'. Doesn't do much but confuse me.
I think of it as a splash screen now. A useless one haha.

Ah, I think we have a clue.
The installed version is 1.7.21295.
The portable is 1.7.21293. But we have to forget what I've said yesterday. Today, the square is appeared too.

I will try to find the 1.7.21291.


Edit : FAIL.
Even with a 1.7.21281, I have the ad.

I get this popup too, and I'm in the UK (as it was mentioned it may be country code related.)

It's probably for an add as Adguard blocks the logo and I get a white box (See below) but for a while I didn't know what was causing the popup as it was just a white box, it was by accident that Adguard did an update and was off and the box popped up with the PotPlayer logo.

I hope that PotPlayer doesn't go the same way that KMPlayer went and starts serving Ads, which would be bad and just ruin the player altogether.

I'd gladly for a one-off fiver for the software to remain ad-free.

Maybe, if every one write to the dev how annoying is this ad, he will change it.
Unread postby Dreamer » 23 Sep 2020 04:01
You can dream everyone will do it, most users just change the player, or download the old version.

I think everyone should just start using old adfree version or other player and stop downloading the new versions, no downloads = no reason for ads, if they will not be displayed, there is no reason to use them for developer.

I think he still don't understand, that for non-Korean/non-Asian users such popup ads are unacceptable.

BTW Still I had no popup ads, I'll downgrade when first will appear, I have a backup copy of the last adfree version.
