  1. Hello.

    I noticed that when updating PotPlayer the settings will be erased and I'll have to tweak things again.
    In Preferences there's a button saying Export Presets. I clicked and it created a Register file in My Documents.
    As I understand when I install a new version of the player I can use this file to restore my chosen settings. Am I right?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't mess around with installers and automagic updates, just make PotPlayer "portable"

    You can view and extract the contents of PotPlayer's installer with 7-Zip.

    I don't want to make it "portable", I just want to know if Export Presets will install my previous settings.

  4. I just erased my settings on purpose and then used the file created with Export Presets. Yes, it restored all my previous settings.

    I have used both the .ini and .reg methods with success.

    However, I have not experienced the loss of configuration when updating or installing a new version

    No problemos, other people may think my suggestion is useful.

    Thanks very much for this! I was frustrated how PotPlayer often returned to default settings on updates.

    In case anyone else wonders what to do:

    1. In PotPlayer, press F5 to open the Preferences.

    2. Click the "Export Presets" button at the bottom of the Preferences window. You're prompted to save a .reg file containing your current settings.

    3. After you save the file, quit PotPlayer and install the new version.

    4. Right-click the .reg file. In the pop-up menu that appears, click "Merge"; then click Yes when asked if you want to proceed. Your settings are restored.

    (BTW, re the custom skins: They're very well-done, but I totally don't get why anyone would want a distractingly light-colored border around their player... Maybe if you're just playing audio?)
