Summary0000541: Fulscreen exclusive mode doesn't work
"enable automatic fulscreen exclusive mode" checkbox doesn't do anything.
PotPlayer doesn't use FSE and when I press Ctrl+j can see the following info: "D3D11 fulscreen windowed (8 bit)".
Actually, I have 10-bit Sony KD-55XE9005 TV, but can't force madVR to output 10 bit.
Steps To Reproduce1) "enable automatic fulscreen exclusive mode" checkbox - ok
2) PotPlayer -> Settings -> Video -> Fulscreen exclusive mode -> Enable: Fastest
3) Start to playback videofile -> Enter to go Fulscreen -> Press Ctrl+j for info -> "D3D11 fulscreen windowed (8 bit)"
Additional InformationI updated to Windows 10 LTSB yesterday. Some time ago, I didn't have that problem on Windows 7 Pro.
Ctrl+j = D3D11 fulscreen exclusive (10 bit)

For now (with Windows 10 LTSB installed), I can't use madVR FSE not only with PotPlayer, I also tried to use it with MPC-HC with no luck. Other renderers, such as EVR Custom, or VMR9 in both players works flawlessly in exclusive fulscreen mode with no problems.

Sorry for the late reply.

Do you have a custom DPI setting (different to 100%), maybe? Does it still occur with the latest PotPlayer build? If so, can you please create a small debug log for me, with the OSD (Ctrl+J) enabled? The debug log should just contain PotPlayer starting a video, going fullscreen, and failing to enter FSE mode. After that happened, wait 5 seconds, then close PotPlayer, zip the debug log and attached the ZIP here. Thanks.

I don't have custom DPI settings on 1080p Panasonic display either on Sony 4k display. The settings are 100% DPI setting for both displays.
I attached log files from both displays.
I use the following connection scheme:
HDMI from GTX1060 -> ONKYO TX-NR676E Receiver -> Panasonic TX-L32U20 + Sony KD-55XE9005

The log says this:

00004593.459 Render D3D11 fullscreen windowed (8 bit)
00004593.460 Render covered by some windows
00004593.461 Render madVR window [madVR] {0,0,1920,1080}
00004596.505 Render covered by StrokesPlus.exe window [STROKESPLUS] {0,0,1920,1080}


00008780.233 Render D3D11 fullscreen windowed (8 bit)
00008780.233 Render covered by some windows
00008780.235 Render madVR window [madVR] {0,0,3840,2160}
00008782.797 Render covered by StrokesPlus.exe window [STROKESPLUS] {0,0,3840,2160}

So it seems that there's a StrokesPlus.exe running which has a window which is somehow in front of the madVR rendering window. In this situation entering FSE mode is not possible because madVR must be the top level window in order to enter FSE mode properly.

Glad to hear it works now!

At the moment I'm not taking donations just yet, but I will at some point in the future. Maybe you could reserve a couple of dollars for me for the future? :)
