  1. One thing I’ve noticed since installing your mid-end presets (GTX-1060, etc.) for Potplayer is that it converts all video files to 60fps, regardless of its original frame rate. Is there any way to switch back and forth from that to using the video’s original frame rate? While, for the most part, I very much love this feature, it can look a bit off for some movies.

    • Neither PotPlayer or LAV Filters has the capability to do the thing you mentioned. Maybe you should try disabling ‘smooth motion’ in madVr.

        • What happens there is merely pulldown application, repeating frames so that the video FPS will match the display refresh rate. This is nothing like SVP or smooth motion. Your video still remain 23fps, not 60fps.

          • Ahh, gotcha. So inserting ffdshow raw video into the Filter Priority should do the trick for avisynth, vapoursynth and/or SVP?

  2. Hello Ranpha
    Bigtime follower here
    I need your help, please, two concerns
    1) i get weird clipping of my sound in all movies, super weird, do you have any solution for this?
    I’m running Windows 8.1 // X-Fi Elite Pro sound card, i’m quite sure this is due to filters / some setting
    2) the mkv included subtitles never load with the MegaMix included subtitle filter, how can i control that, please? Any suggestions? I can’t seem to change the language nor do they load…

    Thanks and regards

      1. Download the 1st, 6th and 9th test videos above, and see if you have the same problem with all of them.
      2. You can try controlling them via the LAV Splitter’s white icon at the system tray.
  3. I’ve noticed that, prior to your version of Potplayer and the goodies included, I was able to get AviSynth to work. Now it seems that enabling or disabling it or VapourSynth doesn’t make any difference.
    It’s strange, though, as I only want to use them for the Fast/TrueMotion Interpolation settings, and yet, when I check the player display, it seems that it’s getting converting from 30->60fps, anyway; and that’s with either Synth program on or off.

      • There is probably nothing you can do about the WMV seeking issue, it is a well-known problem. As for the Avisynth/Vaporsynth feature, I have never tested them. Usually, to use software like SVP, inserting the ffdshow raw video filter in the playback graph should be enough.

  4. Hey ranpha!
    Just wanted to ask about an issue I’ve been having lately.
    Whenever I play a 60fps video, it automatically gets cut to 20-24 fps, and looks like crap.
    Do you have any idea why this issue appears?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  5. getting confused by the presets in the installer. I have Nvidia 1060 GPU, but I also have UHD 4K TV. Which preset is best for me? I don’t see this GPU listed with the UHD 4K presets, but I wanted to be sure. Thanks in advance

  6. rampha, i am running windows 10, i have the Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 480 8GB GDDR5 256 with an intel I7 cpu. I am pushing out to a 4k uhd samsung tv, i see you have some new presets which do you recommend when i reinstall lav filters.

  7. Hello,

    I am having an interesting problem with uninstalling the old LAVFilters. If I uninstall the program either manually or in the process of installing the new installer.

    The startmenu search entries seem to stay. What I mean by that is that if I search in the start menu for PotPlayer the search still finds it. (The same for all other players or for the LAV splitter) In the Start menu the “LAV Filters”-folder itself is gone. (All Users and current user)

    I already rebuilt the search index removed every occurance in the registry (as far as I could find). I also restarted the search service restarted the whole machine, but all to no avail.

    Are you aware that such a problem and a mothod to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

  8. Greetings, ranpha! I just recently installed your pack for mid-tier (1060) settings and I can’t save any of the settings, or an .ini file. Specifically, I wanted to turn on “Include timeinfo in preview”, though being able to save any of the settings would be helpful.

    • Did you change the installation directory?

      Can you try running the player with administrator access, and see if the changes in settings can be saved or not.

      • Thanks for the reply! Honestly, I don’t know what I did, but it’s working fine, now. Looking back, I kinda wish I did, but I’m just happy it’s working.

        On another note, I’ve noticed that seeking on .wmv videos can lead to stutter for a good 10+ seconds before settling into normal playback. I understand .wmv has been troublesome in this aspect for awhile, now, but I am curious if there are any reasonable solutions?
