Source Filter

This tab allows you to control which source filters to use for playback of certain file types. Unless there is a specific reason to change one of these settings and you are certain of what you are doing, it is recommended to leave all of these options at their default settings.

Codec

Most video files you come across will be natively supported by GOM Media Player's built-in codecs. This tab lets you toggle support for various codec formats on and off. The contents of this list will be updated periodically as new codecs are introduced to your system.

Like with the Source Filter tab, changing any of these settings is not recommended under normal circumstances.

- Play using Intel Quick Sync Video (improves playback ability).
Uses the internal hardware decoder for PCs with a Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, or Haswell CPU.
 
If your PC supports Intel Quick Sync Video, enabling this feature will cause the software to use your CPU’s built in hardware decoder to play video files. This can result in higher quality and smoother playback.

Disable Filters

This tab allows you to disable certain filters that may be causing playback issues.

GOM Media Player Filter Preferences - Disable Filters Tab

- Enable Quick Play Mode (disable internal video filter)
If you encounter an issue where playing a high-quality video consumes a large amount of CPU resources resulting in choppy playback, enabling quick play mode may fix the problem. It does so by disabling the internal Gretech Video Filter to allow external filters to be used.
 
Because this feature disables the Gretech Video Filter, certain other features that use the Gretech Video Filter (such as screen capture and color correction) will become unusable.
 
- Disabled Filters List
Sometimes external filters cause conflicts with GOM Media Player's built in filters and processes and hinder proper video playback. Filters with known issues are listed here and disabled. If you want to enable a disabled filter, simply uncheck it. Enabling filters that are disabled by default may, however, result in playback issues.
