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.

The extreme versatility of this media player makes it an all-in-one tool which pretty much negates the need for anything else on a desktop. SMPlayer not only plays virtually all video and audio file formats, but also supports the playback of Blu-ray and DVD discs.

SMPlayer is able to 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 cake.

Further video functionality here includes modifying the video in ways such as video size, zoom, aspect ratio, etc. Mirroring, flipping and rotating the images being played are also among its features.

In addition to watching local media, SMPlayer also provides a search functionality which supports YouTube with its built-in viewer. The player can stream Internet radio too.

Overall, a versatile and useful program which YouTube users might find rather handy. Its faithful community of users have fueled the rise of this lovely media player and array of functionality is certainly impressive.
