Editors' review

On the video-player spectrum, SMPlayer is somewhere between the full-bodied Miro and the super-lightweight VLC Player. The freeware player, intended to be a front-end for MPlayer, supports an impressive list of features and options.

The list of supported formats encompasses both major audio and video codecs and does a good job of trying to differentiate itself from the competition. One of the best features is that the player will remember your settings per video, so if you quit the app in the middle of playing, it'll restart it with the exact same settings as before. Subtitles are fully customizable, including color, font, and size, and it can stream in content from the Internet. The app also works on both Windows and Linux, and it's supported in more than 20 languages. There's also a karaoke filter, so you can remove the audio track.

As you might expect, the install file is quite large at 17MB, and it takes up a fair bit of RAM. We experienced no stability issues with the program, so we're quite comfortable in recommending it as a strong secondary player or even a primary, if one of its more esoteric features is just what you need.

    "Great performance"

    September 08, 2014   |   By evacarter

    Version: SMPlayer 14.9.0

    Pros

    * I can play all videos, even HD, in my old computer. This is something I couldn't do with other players.
    * Easy to use.
    * A lot of useful options, like sync audio and subtitles.

    Cons

    I didn't find any yet.

    Summary

    Finally I can play Youtube HD videos in my old PC thanks to SMPlayer. Impossible to do that with flashplayer...

    Very good player. I highly recommend it.
