  1. I have one question. I want to buy laptop and plug in external computer monitor 1080p. Which graphics card should I choose to watch films in full HD resolution?
    Thanks

  2. What preset for 1440p Gsync display with i7-4790k and GTX 2080? High end 1080p or 4k uhd with high end gpu?

  3. Ranpha, quick question, buddy, since – it’s actually more confusion now than the last few years
    For a pretty high-end rig (8700k + 1080Ti GPU) on non-HDR, 1080p display – what rendering method / madVR setting should be used to max it out?
    Thanks a lot

    • madVR high-end preset and software decoding method. It’s easy mode for your system because your display is 1080p only.

  4. Hi there! Thank you for the awesome guide! Just a quick question, after recently setting up on Win 10 64-bit, I’m having issue with subtitles not showing up when playing .mkv videos. I tried messing around with the settings a little without any luck. Any chance you might know what’s causing the issue?

    • By the way, subtitles is fine when playing .mp4 videos, only .mkv videos is giving me issues. I’m currently using Method #2 – DXVA renderless decoding mode (because Win 10)

                  • It worked! But… it seems like the culprit is actually using D3D11 transparent on-screen controls. Using D3D9 and subtitle show up like it should, even on mkv files. Any idea what might be the cause though? I’m currently running a RTX2070 so I reckon it shouldn’t be a hardware issue.. Gonna re-install 64-bit version and test again

                    • Also, is it possible to do this? Say, I’m playing video 8 out of the 12 videos in a playlist, I’m halfway into the video, close potplayer, next time I launch it again and it will start from the beginning of video 8. Basically I want to save the playlist but not the playtime. I faintly remember doing that back on Win 7 but can’t seem to find the right settings combination now.

                      Currently I had the “Remember default playlist/URLs” under playlist checked and “Remember video playback position” under playback unchecked. The playlist remains but so does the playback position too.

                    • That’s a pity, just gonna wait for a future update then. Thank you so much for your help Ranpha! :)

  5. Hi Ranpha,
    I was wondering is there a way to save or backup madvr settings so that i dont have to set it up every time i update. Thanks

    • Back up the settings.bin file in the madVR folder. Then RIGHT AFTER reinstalling, do not start PotPlayer, but restore the settings.bin file again.

  6. Hi Ranpha. How do I go on about setting the HDR setting for someone who has 1070 but, doesn’t use HDR displays? Do I just follow ‘If you have a GTX1070-class GPU:’ steps?
