In some forums, I’ve often read that VLC is not good for your hard disk. I don’t know the veracity of that claim but I was interested in searching for an alternative anyway.
And I did find one – PotPlayer. It is a simple, yet highly customizable media player. I’m not that much of a video guru but the one thing I can say is that the controls are really simple in this. I will say that it is much simpler and logical than VLC. I can use left and right keys to seek backwards and forwards, enter key to go fullscreen, space bar to pause. If you right click, there’s a ton of options where you can change the aspect ratio, subtitle, online subtitle searching, audio settings, 3D video settings and a hell of a lot more. Just check it out, I’m sure you’ll rethink about using VLC again.
