Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Snappy Player is a light media player, developed by GNOME. Due to the fact that is based on GStreamer, it has support for a lot of audio and video formats.
The latest version available is Snappy Player 1.0, which has been recently released. Among others, it comes with a new feature that allows the users to modify the playback speed, it handles better the synchronization of audio and video, integrates better with GNOME Shell and got drag and drop support.
