    I'm from EU and I never had any popup ad in PotPlayer, it looks it is regional, but not many users want to share their country, so perhaps this way will be better, it is anonymous.

    Canada, no adware. Version 1.7.20538, because I've refused to "upgrade" for a long time.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Are you listening, Microsoft?

    OK, maybe Central and South America can be called Latin America.
    Pretty sure Mexico is considered to be in North America, as it was a member of NAFTA.

    If you want to include it as not US/Canada, then yes, say Latin America.

  5. Not sure if this helps, just sharing my experience here.

    Like most of the users, I've seen pop-up (with logo) at bottom right of screen when launching PotPlayer, despite updated to latest version.
    However, my PC was down recently so I had to re-download the installer for clean installation.
    I've not seeing any pop-up since then (1month+).

  6. Yes, they seem to have gotten rid of the pop-up in the July 6, 2022 version (and the few Betas before that).
