SMPlayer Review

Tina de Pierre

A completely free and flexible video player built on MPlayer which supports most audio and video files out-of-the-box

A review of SMPlayer by Tina de Pierre

SMPlayer is a versatile media player which takes on the task of playing media files, a backend for MPlayer, a media player originally created for Linux Users.

With that said, it is highly capable of playing back video and audio files on Windows. It can playback videos without the need for external filters; It even supports karaoke files (if you have CDG files to feed it). If you're watching a film in a foreign language, finding subtitle files is a piece of pie.

In addition to watching local media, SMPlayer also provides a search functionality which supports the most popular social video sharing web site, YouTube.

Overall, a versatile and useful program which YouTube users might find rather handy.

SMPlayer features and highlights:
  • Configurable subtitles. You can choose font and size, and even colors for the subtitles
  • Audio track switching allows you to choose the audio track you want to listen
  • 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
  • Several filters are available: deinterlace, postprocessing, denoise and even a karaoke filter (voice removal)
  • Audio and subtitles delay adjustment
  • Advanced options, such as selecting a demuxer or video & audio codecs
  • Playlists allow you to enqueue several files to be played one after each other
  • Possibility to search automatically for subtitles in opensubtitles.org
