    Hi, after updating windows with the creators update several programs were broke and crashed instantly when run. An uninstall and reinstall fixed them all though except one, PotPlayer.

    PotPlayer will run and open fine if there is no video loaded, but try and play one and it crashes right away.

    I have no idea how to troubleshoot this :(

    A video streamer? Honestly not what I was expecting when I searched 'potplayer'. Checking their website out I don't see win10 even being listed as 'supported'.

    Perhaps hit up their app specific forum with any logs, event history info, etc and see if the actual developers can help you.

    Check your video card drivers. Works fine here. If you have done that check out the renderer settings. Go down to vmr9 and go from there.
