    I prefer Potplayer rather than KMplayer since I have three media players on my PC: VLC, Potplayer and 5KPlayer. I love all of them. VLC is definitely good, Potplayer with no ad, has almost the same functions as KMplayer. 5KPlayer maybe less unknown, it is handy to save online videos and manage media files.
