Score 88%
Description:

SMPlayer intends to be a complete front-end for MPlayer, from basic features like playing videos, DVDs, and VCDs to more advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and more.

One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave... don't worry, when you open that movie again it will resume at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume...

Other additional interesting features:

* Audio track switching. You can choose the audio track you want to listen. Works with avi and mkv. And of course with DVDs.
* Seeking by mouse wheel. You can use your mouse wheel to go forward or backward in the video.
* Video equalizer, allows you to adjust the brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and gamma of the video image.
* Multiple speed playback. You can play at 2X, 4X... and even in slow motion.
* Filters. Several filters are available: deinterlace, postprocessing, denoise... and even a karaoke filter (voice removal).
* Audio and subtitles delay adjustment. Allows you to sync audio and subtitles.
* Advanced options, such as selecting a demuxer or video & audio codecs.
* Playlist. Allows you to enqueue several files to be played one after each other. Autorepeat and shuffle supported too.
* Preferences dialog. You can easily configure every option of SMPlayer by using a nice preferences dialog.
* Translations: currently SMPlayer is translated into more than 20 languages, including Spanish, German, French, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese....

Hi,
Could you please change the dependencies of your 'smplayer' package in the Launchpad repository, so that you can use it together with 'mplayer2' and not just 'mplayer'? Thanks!

Nice addition but there are too many available actions to easily find what you are looking for even though there appears to be some kind of grouping. Might you consider adding a filter bar and/or the ability to sort by name and/or collapsible groupings

Sorry if I seem kind of fussy with this comment, but this is not a app designed for KDE, so I think this should be on Qt-apps.org.

Hi
Will be nice when smplayer could open Blu-Ray discs(of course discs without aacs and BD+ protection)and works with libbluray and libaacs libraries. Blu-Ray technology has few years and now we have 2012 and no option "open BD discs in file menu" Another question is why Smplayer can play movies from UT, but can not stream movie from makemkv localhost server?

When black borders for fullscreen windows are enabled, switching from/to fullscreen will re-start video.

How to reproduce:

1. visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3F_nOs01peA
2. when the file loads 100%
3. open dolphin and go to /tmp folder
4. we can see cached flv file as FlashQSBCDH (or similar name)
5.open the flv file with smplayer/mplayer 1.0rc2
6. we can observe that after a few seconds the Audio Video synchronization goes out of sync.

7. using Fix audio/video sync in settings won't help as it does not allow "0" value

Expected behavior:
1. opening the same file with "-mc 0" parameters fixes the a/v sync problem.

thanks.

> 7. using Fix audio/video sync in settings won't help as it does not allow "0" value

Fixed in svn r3019. Now it allows to enter 0.

Anyway that value is actually used for the -autosync option, not -mc.

Friend RVM,

using -autosync does not help!

Please allow " -mc " in Audio/Video Sync section just like autosync, for Flv playback fix. Thanks.

Added an option to set the -mc value in svn r3025.

Hi,

Mplayer has sync problem with video/audio with FLV (flash videos). I would be nice to have an option in smplayer's settings like "[x] -mc 0 (fixes flv playback)"
strangely, flv files do not get synced properly, especially which we download from youtube.com.
When we play a video downloaded from youtube as file.flv, then we can see that lips are moving out-of-sync with the voice of the person. please consider adding/informing "-mc 0" in smplayer settings. thanks.

This is the best front-end for mplayer I've founde! nice work!
I just have one suggestion, could you add an option to disable xscreensaver when playing a video please?

There's already an option for that: preferences -> general -> video -> disable screensaver.

oh yes, it's true! I already have ticked this option, but I didn't remember I had, because it simply doesn't what it should.
I use xscreensaver in openbox. Is there any reasons for my problem? (sorry for my really bad english)

In newer versions of mplayer the option -stop-xscreensaver may not work with some screensavers.

You'll need to use the -heartbeat-cmd option too.

I like smplayer much more than any other mplayer gui.The only thing that stops me from using it is there is no way to quickly loop a file.A shortcut or a button wud be great.Could u please add that if its not too much work.

Also I know u can step forward frame by frame in mplayer.If there is a way to step backwards as well...A shortcut wud b great.

Cheers.
