MX 17 Repository: The SMPlayer Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:23 pm

SMPlayer is a great all around media player that can use mplayer or mpv as the backend. One of its best features is that it can remember all the settings you had for each particular video, such as volume, brightness, equalizer, position, and so on.

We now have the latest 17.11.0 in the main repository. Changes include:
- The video equalizer by software has been fixed.
- The thumbnail generator is now more precise with short videos.
- The audio quality of the audio equalizer has been improved.
- The option "add black borders on fullscreen" has been fixed.
- The option "AC3/DTS passthrough over S/PDIF" has been fixed.

SMPlayer has been updated to 17.12.0 in our main repository. Changes include:
* Two new actions to take screenshots with or without subtitles (they only work when using mpv). Assigned by default to Ctrl+Shift+S and Ctrl+Alt+S.
* New action which displays the filename in the OSD for 2 seconds. Assigned by default to Shift+O.
* New option, osd_bar_pos for smplayer.ini. It specifies the position of the OSD bar (0 = top, 100 = bottom).
* The support for DVD menus has been removed. It never worked well and also mpv already removed support for it some time ago.
* The option to open an informative page after an upgrade has been removed.

SMPlayer has been updated to 18.1.0 in the main repository to address some Youtube playback issues.

I have just tested it with an experimental build of mpv 0.28.0 (internal ffmpeg) as the backend, and it could play a Youtube live stream.

SMPlayer 18.2.2 is now in the main repository. Changes:

Version 18.2.2:

The option Open -> URL can now also load YouTube playlists.
New option in Preferences -> Subtitles to select the opacity of the background of the subtitles (available when the 'border style' is set to 'opaque box').
The options for the preferred number of track for audio and subtitles are back.
(mpv) Now the direct3d is the default video output for Windows, since some users reported problems with the gpu output.


Version 18.2:

Now it's possible to use a priority list of preferred languages for the audio and subtitles.
Now there's support for YouTube playlists. In the playlist window, click in the Load/save icon, select "Load playlist from URL" and paste the URL of the YouTube playlist.

Now updated to the latest 18.4.0 release in the main repo, with a new feature to change the position of OSD bar.

Other than that, the time displayed by a tooltip when the mouse is over the seekbar is now much more accurate. And now it’s possible to turn off the use of the system native file dialog in Preferences -> Interface.
