As you may know, SMPlayer is a front-end for MPlayer, having support for video, DVD and VCD playback, has some advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and keeps track of the settings of all the played files, resuming a closed movie from the moment it was closed.
The latest version available is SMPlayer 16.1.0, coming with the below changes:
- The screenshots work again with older versions of MPlayer/mpv.
- Possibility to add bookmarks (menu Browse), which allows to mark your favorite parts of the video for a quick access.
- New option ‘Prevent window to get outside of screen’ in Preferences -> Interface.
SMPlayer is available via some third party PPA, so installing it on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and derivative systems like Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Peppermint 6, Peppermint 5, LXLE 14.04 and Linux Lite 2 should not be to difficult.
