  1. Hi
    How can I setup potplayer to use GPU instead of CPU?
    I want to play a 2160p video and it uses a lot of CPU.

    Unless your video card can decode 4K HEVC, PotPlayer or any other software player will always fallback to CPU-decoding.

    I always set mine to use DXVA: Preferences, Filter Control, Video Decoder, Built-in video codec/dxva settings... Check Use DXVA, enable all VLD... I also use the Direct3D11 video renderer. Click "Tab" while playing a video to see stats.
    Also under Filter Control, OpenCodec, you might want to enable all the decoders.
    I only have an older 1080p TV, so I never played higher resolution videos to check.

  4. Thank you for answers.
    I have an old GTX 1050 TI video card. But with today prices is better than nothing.

  5. Make sure the codec, color format, bit depth, and frame size are supported. AV1, for example. isn't supported by the 1050 Ti.
