Hello Linux Geeksters. 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 14.9, which comes with the below changes/fixes:
- Fix for Youtube.
- New option to shut down the computer when playback has finished.
- The themes and skin icons are loaded from resource files (*.rcc).
- New fix for searching subtitles from opensubtitles.org that should return more results.
In this article I will show you how to install SMPlayer 14.9 on Fedora 20 and Fedora 19 systems.
Because it is available via the RPMFusion repository, installing SMPlayer 14.9 on the latest Fedora systems is easy. All you have to do is add the repository to your system, update the local repository index and install the smplayer package. Like this:
$ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
$ sudo yum update
$ sudo yum install smplayer
Optional, to remove smplayer, do:
$ sudo yum remove smplayer
