Pot Player Unhandled Exception occurred

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have installed PotPlayer which is a multimedia player and I like its simplicity of use so I made it to be my default media player. All was well until yesterday when I realized there is a certain file that could not play and upon checking it was a .mkv file. The following error shown below was displayed. How can I solve this kind of error?

Pot Player Unhandled Exception occurred


Hello William,

I am also a user of potplayer and what makes me fan of this software is that it is so light weight and fast that it works perfectly even on my 4 year old system, without any lag or problem.

Now coming to your question since potplayer is so light weight, few codec for playing a playing a particular type of file are not included in the default package of potplayer. So there are two ways to solve this problem-

1. To correct this problem please update your potplayer since all those codecs are now a part of latest the potplayer setup so updating your software alone will solve all your problems.

2. Another solution for this is a manually downloaded codec for mkv format and install it.

Though first solution is recommended.
