Complete front-end for MPlayer and mpv
  20 reviews

Qt5 front-end for mplayer and forks, with 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...

Significant audio delay. Usable, but very unpleasant.

SMPlayer is superior to other media players, but is held back by lack of proper support for DVD menus. Therefore, one is forced to keep VLC on his system if he wants to play them.

My default and favourite media player for many years, on Linux and Windows.

Highly customizable, plays dual subtitle tracks, easy to configure. Best video player in Linux!!!

It looks ugly at first, but you can easily customize it and it becomes one of the best media players for me.

es de lo mejor, me encanta que recuerde donde deje la serie o la pelicula que estaba mirando. (It's the best, I love that it remembers where I left the series or the movie I was watching.)

One of the better front-ends for mkv, I do recommend installing smplayer-themes along. @vlc enthusiast; this is the videoplayer you actually want!

Good player, a lot of options and customizations. Those who think it's ugly, go to preferences -> appearance -> Icon Set to Papirus or PapirusDark; Style to gtk2; optionally change the GUI to mini GUI.

Sehr schöne, bunte Oberfläche. Gefällt mir. ABER auf meinem Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon Vers.4.6.7 hängt es derart das die Maus sich mit ca. 30 sec. Verzögerung bewegt schließen ging nur mit Systemüberwachung.Google-translated: Very nice, colorful surface. I like it. BUT on my Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon Vers.4.6.7 it hangs in such a way that the mouse moves with a delay of about 30 seconds. Closing was only possible with system monitoring.

Super configurable and looks great. The ease of adding subtitles is a huge bonus. Default as of now. Mint 20.2 Uma

At last. A player that plays everything AND HAS DECENT SUBTITLE CAPABILITIES. A much needed and missing feature in video players of the linux ecosystem. Goodnight VLC. It's been a beautiful decade. IMPORTANT. The repository version is (as usually the case) outdated. The online search feature doesn't work. Download from the website instead, create an account, and tell SMPlayer your login details

In LMDE4 the software manager has version 18.20 just ugraded to the lastest version 20.5.0+3.4. It's my default player. When I was a windows 10 user one of the three media players on my system PotPlayer stands out why? ... the title bar and the control/status bar could be hidden no matter the size of the player; that addition to Smplayer would be nice :).... A new thing happen today, a donation popup showed up I didn't mind and gladly sent a donation as a thank you for those maintain it. I've used Smplayer for years on different platforms because it's simple and plays the media I need it too.

The best media player for linux especially if u enable multiple instances and add custom themes and icons. For someone like me who loves watching movies and tv series u can always continue from where u left off since it remembers playback position
