MEPIS 8.5 Community Repo: The SMPlayer Thread

#1 Postby Stevo » Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:10 pm

Update 4-14-2012: New release 0.8.0 is now available in the testing community repo. Changes include:

A toolbar editor has been added. Now it's possible to select the buttons and controls that want to appear in the toolbars.
New video filters: gradfun, blur and sharpen.
Now it's possible to change the GUI (default, mini, mpc) at runtime, no restart required.
sub files from opensubtitles should work again.
(Youtube) Recognize short urls (like this one: http://y2u.be/F5OcZBVPwOA)
Better support for chapters in video files.
Bug fix: remote m3u files work from the favorites menu or command line.
Internal changes in the single instance option (switch to QtSingleApplication).


SMPlayer is a great front-end to the mplayer or mplayer2 multimedia engine.

Let us know how it's working, thanks!

Bump: 0.8.5+git5552 (pulled from the SMPlayer source code git repository) is now in the test community repository. Ricardo has being fixing a constantly changing Youtube API, he thinks now with 5552 it can update itself to fix the issue. This will also get rid of that updated nag :crossfingers: :)

It seems youtube did it again and smplayer fails to play many youtube videos (mostly music videos).

I'll try to fix it as soon as possible.

Experimental: since r5552 smplayer can update the code that decodes the youtube signatures, so it won't be needed to update smplayer every time youtube makes a change.

Bump: another pull from git, #5597, and I figured out how to get the git rev. number to show up in the version, so that really fixes the update notice. This also really fixes the Youtube problem with playing certain videos (music videos such as Anna Kendrik's "Cups", for example) using SMPLayer and SMTube.

There's also an update of SMTube from 1.5 to 1.7, though you still will get an error when trying to download those problem videos in SMTube. The workaround is to capture the stream in SMPlayer by adding the Mplayer commands:

Code: Select all

-dumpstream -dumpfile <filename>.mp4


in the Advanced Preferences, i.e.

Code: Select all

-dumpstream -dumpfile ~/Videos/Anna_Kendrik_CUPS.mp4


The video will not be watchable while downloading, so you may have to monitor the network traffic to see when it finishes.

Also, SMTube requires QT 4.6 minimum, so that also will pull in that upgrade from the 8.5 test CR if necessary. SMPlayer alone would not need that upgrade.

Update: 0.8.6 is now in the test repository, along with an update to smplayer-skins and smtube-1.8. I tried a problem "Vevo" Youtube music video, SMTube informed me there was a problem and would I like to download an internal update to fix this. After the update, I was able to view and download the video (Anna Kendrick's "Cups"). There are also a few more bugfixes.

SMPlayer has changed its versioning; from now on it's year.month, so this new update is 14.3.0. We now have it in the test CR. Changes include:

SMPlayer 14.3 released

Version 14.3

The control for fullscreen mode has been rewritten and improved. Now it is displayed over the video.
(Windows) New option in Preferences -> Subtitles to enable or disable the use of the Windows font directory. Disabling this option prevents the annoying font scanning.
Some presets have been added to the audio equalizer.
(Experimental) Possibility to play (non-protected) blu-ray discs.
Better support for multimedia keys. This can help control SMPlayer with a remote control.
New option in the playlist preferences for adding automatically other files in the folder to the playlist.
The option "Move the window when the video area is dragged" has been fixed.
(Windows) Now it's possible to open Windows shortcuts (symlinks).
Better support for Youtube.
(Windows) Better screensaver disabling.
Many bugfixes.
Possibility to compile with Qt 5.
