Based on the well-known MPlayer
, it comes with some extra features which make it an excellent choice for both beginners and advanced users.
Any modern-day media player should be able to render a large variety of formats, but a successful application needs some extra features and advanced options that enhance viewing experience.
In the case of SMPlayer, one of its pleasant surprises is the ability to remember the settings of the files you play.
This means that if you close the application during playback, when you open it again, SMPlayer will resume the last video or audio, with the same settings.
Users can personalize their experience due to other interesting features, too. The filters provided by SMPlayer refer to image and sound processing, and they even include a karaoke filter which removes the voice.
Exploring your media files has never been easier. You can use the mouse wheel to go forward or backward and you enjoy multiple speed playback as well (2X, 4X and so on and slow motion).
SMPlayer helps you get the most of your movies, so your evening is not ruined because the subtitle is delayed or ahead or the sound doesn’t fit the image.
You can easily synchronize subtitle and audio to your video. And you also don’t have to look for subtitles manually on the Internet, as SMPlayer itself finds them on Open Subtitles website.
The latest updates come with various improvements, such as automatically updating the Youtube code, auto-loading subtitles with non-Latin filenames and configuring and disabling the update checker.
SMPlayer does not only provide the tools you need for playing media content, but it has also been revised many times to offer you a flawless playback.
