SMPlayer 24.5.0

3.8 from 5 Reviews

SMPlayer is a complete media player, which supports almost any video and audio format, without needing external codecs.

It also plays and downloads YouTube videos.

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.

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.

Changes to SMPlayer 23.12.0:

The latest updates come with various improvements, such as:

- Implemented support for the new Opensubtitles API.
- Fix play/pause with mpv 0.37.
- Fix loading playlists with extension m3u8.
- Fix video jitter/shudder when clicking on timeline bar.
- Other small fixes.

Full list of changes.

For my purposes, SMplayer is the greatest player on the market. And when I say for my purposes, I am specifically talking about its resume play feature. 'RESUME PLAY' is the ability to stop a video and then restart it at a later time and have it pick up where it left off as opposed to the video starting over at the beginning and having to search for the point where it had previously stopped.

I have been using SMplayer now for several years. Prior to SMplayer I had been using the VLC player.

VLC has always been and I'm sure will always be a great player but until recently it lacked this feature and even though VLC has recently incorporated this feature into their player (after a fashion) in the VLC player it is awkward and a hassle to use.

With VLC you have to go through multiple steps to get to resume play (which kind of defeats the whole purpose). With SMplayer it is the automatic and default setting. With SMplayer if you stop the video now and then come back five minutes later or five months later it will still automatically resume at the point where you left off with just a standard double click. It doesn't matter if you have started and stopped 20 other shows. SMplayer will still remember and resume play where you left off on every one of them.

In its earlier years, there were some occasional playback issues on some videos, but I have not had that problem for a long time now. SMplayer has got to be the most underrated unsung hero of the computer video player world.

I will always like VLC but I LOVE SMPLAYER!

SM Player is very good but incapable of playing longer video files above 250mb...whether it be wmv, mp4, flv or others which it plays worse.

For smaller video files, excellent

This player IS reliable, and has de-blocking filters and other filters easily accessed from the menu bar including during playback.

It always seems to come in handy, even though I license several payware players.

This player is feature rich. Much appreciated...
