License Violations?

If this has the features of KMPlayer does that also mean this also has the GPL violations that KMPlayer does?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I do not think so

Apparently, the problem with KMP was that it linked to source codes of GPL instead of including it.

Whereas, "PotPlayer distribute sources for all components as far I know in zip packs"

Compiling

It also matters how ffmpeg is compiled. If it is compiled with GPL components (which I believe is how the default libraries are) then you can't legally use those components with a closed source player. No ifs ands or buts. The only way to use ffmpeg with a closed source front-end player is to compile it specifically as LGPL licensed (excluding all GPLed components) and then distribute it properly with the license, all copyrights attached and distribute the source code yourself.

Of course, if they haven't done that all along, then their rights are automatically rescinded and can only be reinstated by the copyright owners.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Pot Player is fantastic, I hope it gets the PortApps treatment

I used to do KMplayer all the time but dev stopped on that when he sold it. Pot Player is KMP and more, very nice! Plus native x64 version for Win7 x64 folks like me. Hoping for a PortableApps version ... (x32 and x64 please)

The portable for PotPlayer is already available

Hi all, you can get the portable version of PotPlayer from the following link

[Link removed]

the updated links are readily available from the following URL,

However, the software is only available in Chinese (Traditional) . But you can change it to English after you had unzipped and ran it..

[Links removed on the assumption that it won't be a legal distribution of the freeware - mod Chris]

He who must not be named

I assume this link is still good for public viewing of the PotPlayer name..

http://www.softpedia.com

..since PortableApps has links available on the site.
