How Do I Increase the Video Quality on PotPlayer?

Are you tired of watching low-quality videos on PotPlayer? Do you want to enhance your viewing experience by increasing the video quality?

Look no further, as we have got you covered! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to increase the video quality on PotPlayer.

Step 1: Open PotPlayer Settings

The first step is to open the PotPlayer settings by clicking on the three horizontal lines located in the top-right corner of the player. A drop-down menu will appear, and from there, click on “Preferences” (or press F5).

Step 2: Enable Hardware Acceleration

Once you are in the preferences menu, navigate to the “Playback” tab located in the left-hand side panel. Under this tab, you will find an option called “Use hardware-accelerated decoding.” Make sure that this option is checked as it enables your graphics card to decode videos faster and more efficiently.

Step 3: Increase Video Quality

Now that hardware acceleration is enabled, go back to the main menu of PotPlayer and click on “Video” located in the top menu bar. From here, select “Video Settings” (or press F2). Under this tab, look for an option called “Post-processing.”

Note: You can also press Ctrl+Alt+V instead of going through these steps.

Option 1: MadVR

If you are using a powerful computer with a dedicated graphics card, then MadVR is the best option for enhancing video quality. It is a high-quality video renderer that uses advanced algorithms to improve image quality.

Under “Post-processing,” select “MadVR” from the drop-down menu. Once selected, click on “Configure” and choose a preset that suits your needs. If you are unsure which preset to choose, then select “Default Settings” and hit “OK.”

Option 2: Built-in Post-processing

If your computer does not have a dedicated graphics card, then you can still enhance the video quality by using PotPlayer’s built-in post-processing filters.

Under “Post-processing,” select “Built-in High-Quality Video Renderer” from the drop-down menu.”

Step 4: Apply Changes

After selecting either MadVR or Built-in post-processing, make sure to click on “Apply” and then “OK.” Your changes will now be saved, and you will notice a significant improvement in video quality.


By following these simple steps, you can enhance the video quality on PotPlayer and enjoy a better viewing experience. Whether you are using a powerful computer with a dedicated graphics card or an entry-level system, there is an option available for everyone. So give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
