    • I don’t think you can create a 3dlut file with only an .icc file. The best thing you can do is to just actualy choose the ‘this display is already calibrated’ option with the ‘disable GPU gamma ramp’ option disabled.

      • Thanks,
        I don’t know what choose in “the display is calibrated to the following primaries / gamut”
        and “the display is calibrated to the following transfer function / gamma”

        • For “the display is calibrated to the following primaries / gamut”, it is BT.709.
          For “the display is calibrated to the following transfer function / gamma”, the first pulldown menu is ‘pure power curve’, the second one depends on how you calibrate the display. When in doubt, 2.2.

  1. Hello there,

    I’ve been using PotPlayer for years now but recently used the Megamix pack. Before, when i played an audio file it showed the thumbnail and some informations about the file (bitrate…etc) it looked like this : https://i.imgur.com/vqHB0Nw.jpg

    My problem is that with the new installation it doesn’t show up, there’s just the playing bar (minimalist interface) nothing else. I’m using the “Window Frame Skin” if that makes any help.

    Is there any way to get it back ? or it’s just the PotPlayer version used in the pack, who doesn’t come with ?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    • Does the same feature appears when you use the default skin? The custom default skin used in the installer did not support audio mode.

  2. Hello there,

    This is probably a noob question but i can’t seem to find the setting to reconfigure PotPlayer like it was before. (Switched to Megamix recently)

    With my old PotPlayer installation everytime i played an audio file there was a thumbnail with some file informations (bitrate…etc) above the playing bar. (it looked like this : https://i.imgur.com/D6RNvMz.jpg)

    It’s not showing on my new installation, minimalist interface with only the playing bar. I use the “Window Frame Skin”, if that makes any help.

    Welp ? Any way to get it back ?

  3. I have a 4K HDR/NVIDIA handshake issue. What is the best color mode to leave the NVIDIA control panel in to watch non HDR files through PotPlayer? Is the low end preset in the installer compatible with HDR?
    4:2:2 12bps ? 10 bps
    4:4:4 12 bps? 10 bps
    I’m running an OLED55B6P

    I don’t want to leave the HTPC on permanent HDR as the screen and colors look washed out, but want to know what the optimum non HDR setting should be?

    • Use 4:4:4,bitdepth doesn’t matter as long as no handshake problem.

      The low-end preset should be usable with HDR, although I have not personally tested this.

  4. I didn’t, but having now checked it, the ffdshow raw codec was already set that way.
    What’s troubling is that I can’t even get AviSynth to work, at all; not even the ColorBars function, just as a test. Do you think that has to do with my previous AviSynth installation, even though I completely uninstalled it?

    On another note, I was curious why in Potplayer’s “Built-in Video Decoder Config”, “use DXVA” is disabled. Shouldn’t that be enabled, as well as the DXVA2 Copy-Back method below, if I’m using that particular preset of yours? I just figured it would be set that way from the start, but I just want to be sure that it’s necessary.

    Oh, and I figured out why the PP settings wouldn’t save after closing; if you click on “Store settings to .ini file”, ironically, not only does that not work, but it won’t save the settings in the player, itself. It’s a shame, because after updating from your latest LAVfilters megapack, all of my settings were gone, even the madVR ones. (No, I didn’t click to reset them upon installation.) I’ll be backing up those madVR settings, now, I suppose.

    • The built-in codec configuration did not really matter because LAV Filters will be used. The installer does do automated uninstallation, therefore settings will not be saved and has to be backed-up manually.

      • Gotcha, don’t know why that didn’t occur to me. No worries, I’ve pretty much given up on the whole interpolation thing, just not worth the trouble.

        Thanks for the help!

  5. I downloaded the latest build and I still have the same problem. It was also the 64 bit version. I have never had a problem with it before.

  6. Ranpha: I have an extrange behaviour with the playlist, stops after the firstvideo and you need to select the next file to play and click it to start to play. Is the same if you select another file in the directory you need to click, let porplayer open, and click it again to play… 0.69.0-80 x64 version. thanks in advance for your help.
