How can I set PotPlayer to start playing a video at the video's resolution?
If I have a 640x480 video on my computer, I'd like PotPlayer to open and play the video at 640x480. I can then choose to resize it or double click the mouse to go to full screen. I figured out how to lock the aspect ratio.
Thank you for your help!

I t took me a while also to get it right but there are 3 main screens to set up in preferences (F5) in order to get it to resize to video resolution. These settings I also set to go to default size on open and stop so it shrinks down out of the way. If you want it to stay the same size just hit hte pla/pause button to stop in mid-stream.
You don't have to select keep on top but I like mine to stay on top. The same for launch multiple players but I like to use more than one to compare quality settings sometimes. Snap to edge means it willsnap to top and side of screen if you more it close. I set When starting to default size also.
This screen size x1.0 100% was hard to find but is necessary for getting the resolution right. The other settings are you choice.
Aspect ratio shuld be set as above. Set this way my potplayer starts out at the video resolution and is adjustable but always maintains aspect ratio. Give it a try.
I'm still looking for help. I tried Budman1's settings and it isn't doing what I mentioned. I've tried various combinations without any luck.
To repeat what you suggested:
1) I set When Starting, Screen Status to default. I had it at "Last Size" before your advice.
2) I set Playback screen settings to x1.0 (100%)
3) I was already at Keep Aspect Ratio
The only real difference we had besides that was the "Adjust aspect ratio to window size" ... I tried both ways and still no luck.
Everything I try this way either keeps a playing file larger or makes it larger than the video's original resolution.
I appreciate any further help. Thanks Budman1 for trying to help me.
OOps, my bad... forgot an important setting.
I reset all my settings and set just these and the ones in my earlier post and it plays with the video size equal to the resolution of the
video and when I hit stiop it goes back to the 320x240 default size. Pause stays at video resolution size. I will add that for some reason, I change the settings and they do not change after I hit apply so I always close and reopen and check again to be sure. Also, some settings do not change until the Player is closed and reopened. I hope this helps.
That did it! THANK YOU so much! I hope this helps others in the future as well.
