seems that the latest potplayer versions have included a "potplayer" popup logo in bottom right corner that shows briefly at program launch... is there a way to disable it?
also, is there a way to hide the player frame (navbar, etc.) when the player is in windowed mode? "enable layered window mode" seems to do the trick but it also seems to disable 10-bit video.

1. More users reported this issue, but I don't have this popup window, don't know why, it's the same/latest PotPlayer version, tested even with default settings, may OS is Windows 10 2004 64-bit, using Defender, no other antivirus. First - that popup ad had just users from Asia - with the real ad, not just PotPlayer logo, now users from US, Canada and UK reported it, I'm from EU, it's the only difference I can see, so perhaps EU protects users somehow, GDPR or something?
Is there any user from EU who has this popup ad/logo?
2. This is one of the best PotPlayer options and I think it's the only player with this feature in window mode, auto-hiding the navigation bar, playlist and the title bar, it's in the Preferences - General - Skins - "Auto hide main window skin while video screen is active", for OSC Method I'm using "Direct3D11 Mode".

Here it works with any "Method", disabled, direct3D9/11/openGL, layered.
Could you explain it, or perhaps the screenshot could help.
when any other sc > osc method is used autohide doesn't work in windowed mode when the payer isn't active - the player (skin) controls are not hidden if a movie isn't playing:
however autohide does work with any sc > osc method when in fullscreen even if the screen isn't active, i.e. even if a movie isn't playing, which is the most important (for me at least) - i would just like a setting where it also worked in windowed mode when set to a mode other than "layered window" because, as mentioned, layered window apparently disables 10-bit or higher output.
There's not much to do but then I can't do much anyway.
here are the latest 64 versions, i've rolled back to the 200730 "no ads" version, haven't seen the popup yet, if i do i'll roll back again until i land on a version that doesn't produce a popup, like i had before, just wish i remembered which version it was.
Just realized my comment was misplaced

Strange, navigation bar is auto-hidden here, even if no file is playing, just Playlist is not auto-hidden in this case, but it's possible to disable it with the button, I tried default settings + any OSC Method option except "Disable", you can try also this option:
Preferences - General - Skins - "Auto hide main window skin while video screen is active"
Perhaps it's GPU/OS related issue, I don't know. I'd post a screenshot, but it would be just a black window - just I have the PotPlayer logo/text in the middle, are you using built-in skin, or is it modified, or is it some option?
BTW my PotPlayer version: 200908 1.7.21291 64-bit, Windows 10 2004 64-bit, Defender.

I don't have any popup ads in PotPlayer, but I don't know any other program with such problems.
Another reason for updating are the new features, I know many programs, which have very useful new features, they are adding often.
