Umplayer is Mplayer on steroids http://www.umplayer.com/ , along side with audio and video using his codecs now it is expanded with the addition of shoutcast and youtube extensions. So is there a chance to see this player in the Linux Mint packages?

It's definitely a nice player, but for the sake of simplicity and user-friendliness for new users, I don't think it should be installed by default. However, might be useful in the repos :)

@creation, I'm sorry but I don't know why too.

Why don't you visit Linux Mint Forums and ask why?

That sounds good, but why not a package in the offical Mint repo`s?

You can add the WebUpd8 PPA and install UMPlayer using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install umplayer
