 Are there other video players I can use? 

There is an alternative to VLC Media Player for Windows users called PotPlayer.  

To install PotPlayer on your PC: 

  1. Follow this link: http://potplayer.daum.net/ Important: Use Firefox or Microsoft Edge to download PotPlayer. You cannot use Google Chrome at this time.
  2. Select “64bit Download”
  3. You will see a prompt at the bottom of your screen asking what you would like to do with this setup. Select “Run.” 
  4. At the bottom of your screen, click the arrow (^), then select Open.
  5. You will be asked if you want to allow this application to make changes to your PC. Select “Yes.”

  8. Select “I agree” on the PotPlayer license agreement. 
  9. Select “Next” on Choose Components.

  11. Select “Install.” 
  12. If PotPlayer does not automatically open, you can select the PotPlayer icon on your desktop.
  13. Right-click on the PotPlayer icon in your taskbar, then select "Pin to Taskbar."
