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.

  • Seeking by mouse wheel. You can use your mouse wheel to go forward or backward in the video
