I've been trying PotPlayer for a while and it's quite good.

The only problem is it's keep trying to access the following sites every time I bring this apps up.

http://get.daum.net/PotPlayer/v4/HostDefEng.sig
http://t1.daumcdn.net/potplayer/PotPlayer/v4/MajorVersionEng.sig
http://potplayertv.daum.net/checksvc

Initially, I thought this because of the automatic updates.

Then, I disabled it. However, it still attempt to do the same connection every time I restart PotPlayer.

Please let me know how to block this access permanently on Windows client.

I don't want PotPlayer to make a internet connection at all.

  • Stick those websites in your host file as 127.0.0.1 and ::1 – DavidPostill Dec 21 '17 at 14:29

You can use OneClickFirewall app https://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.1841

Just install it, and find your PotPlayerMini.exe location. Usually here

C:\Program Files (x86)\DAUM\PotPlayer

After that right click PotPlayerMini.exe, choose "Block Internet Access"
