How To Disable GOM Media Player Popup Ads

GOM Media Player is a widely used video player with support for numerous video and audio formats. Probably it’s the best video player after VLC, Media Player Classic and SMPlayer. It sports a neat UI and comes with tons of advanced features and options to tweak just about everything of your video, from brightness and aspect ratio to subtitle.

Probably the best feature of GOM Media Player is its codec finding service. Unlike VLC, GOM doesn’t support uncommon video formats by default. So, when you try to open one of these unsupported video formats, code finder service takes to you to the download page of the missing codec and helps you easily install the missing codec.

    For those still having problems with ads, try adding a new skin. Preferences > General > Skin (Tab) > Get more skins. I use KPS Dark Glow and see no more ads, Good Luck 🙂

    This hasn’t been an option for a long time. There’s no Network tab in the preferences nor is there a popup.exe. And now the ads appear INSIDE the player upon starting the program.
