Version 16.6.0
  • Release Date: Jun 11, 2016
  •  * Support for 2 in 1 computers with touch screens.
       SMPlayer includes now a 'tablet mode', available in the menu Options.
       When the option is turned on it makes some changes in the interface
       so that it would be easier to control SMPlayer by touching the
       screen.
       When the user changes the tablet mode in the Windows 10 action
       center, SMPlayer will detect it and ask if it should switch to the
       SMPlayer's tablet mode as well.
     * Option to send video to an external screen.
       Now it's possible to send the video to a second screen connected to
       the computer, while controlling the application in the computer's
       screen.
     * Support for high DPI screens.
       On high DPI (dots per inch) screens SMPlayer looked very tiny. Now
       the interface is automatically scaled so it looks correctly. There
       are also settings in Preferences -> Interface -> High DPI where you
       can adjust manually the scale factor or turn off this feature.
     * Global shortcuts.
       Now it's possible to use the media keys (play/pause, stop, volume+/-,
       etc.) as global shortcuts. That means that those keys will work even
       when SMPlayer is in the background. You can activate this option in
       Preferences -> Keyboard and mouse.
     * Settings are remembered for online streams too.
       This means that, for example, SMPlayer can resume playback or set
       bookmarks on YouTube videos or other online streams (as long as they
       are seekable).
     * SMPlayer is now built with Qt 5 by default.

  • SMPlayer can now update its internal Youtube code so it's not necessary to update smplayer everytime Youtube makes a change.
  • A section "Updates" has been added to the preferences dialog, where it's possible to configure or disable the update checker.
  • SMPlayer could still fail to find some subtitles from opensubtitles.org. Hopefully this is fixed.
  • (Windows) The autoload of subtitles with non latin1 filenames has been fixed.
  • The Windows installer gives the possibility to delete most of the configuration files of smplayer. This can be useful if the configuration files have been corrupted or smplayer has been misconfigured. Linux users can use the command "smplayer -delete-config".
  • Several other bugfixes. See the Changelog for details.

    • SMPlayer took more than 10 seconds to show when running for the very first time.
    • The links to download subtitles from Opensubtitles were wrong.
    • SMPlayer crashed in the favorite editor when trying to select a file if the KDE open dialog was used.
    • Some translations were missing in the Windows package.
  • New:
    • By default the screenshots are saved in the user's pictures folder instead of the SMPlayer's config folder.
    • Now it's possible to change the opensubtitles server.
    • Youtube: seeking is slow with flv videos, so now flv videos have the lowest priority.
    • Youtube: now it's possible to search and download videos from youtube. This is provided by an external application (in linux you have to install an independent package: smtube).

  • Possibility to display the video resolution and frames per second in the status bar.
  • Audio: selection of left or right channel does work now.
  • (Linux) Improved support for vdpau.
Version 0.6.8.3403
  • Release Date: Jan 17, 2010
  • I've just created a package for windows with the latest version of smplayer (svn r3403) and mplayer-mt r29319 (from http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer-win32.php). This is the multithreaded version of mplayer, which could improve performance of HD videos on multi-core processors. (Select at least 2 threads for decoding in preferences -> performance).

Version 0.6.7
  • Release Date: Mar 11, 2009
  • Added experimental (and uncomplete) support for dvd menus. Requires a mplayer build compiled with dvdnav support. Please read dvdmenus.txt to know how to enable it.
  • Now loading an external subtitle file doesn't require to restart the mplayer process (except for idx/sub subtitles).

  • (ASS subtitles) The outline and shadow options now accept values with decimals.
  • (ASS subtitles) Possibility to change the color of the border and shadow.

Version 0.6.6
  • Release Date: Jan 3, 2009
  • Added an option to generate a preview (thumbnails) of the video.
  • Added a new gui (mpcgui, a media player classic clone) developed by Matthias Petri.
  • Added some auto zoom options, to display the video without black borders.
  • Implemented a new (and optional) method to save the file settings. This method uses an ini file per each played file. It's faster than the old one.
  • Added a new option in Preferences->Video: add black borders on fullscreen. If this option is enabled, black borders will be added to the image in fullscreen mode. This allows subtitles to be displayed on the black borders.
  • Increased the resolution of the seekbar. Allows a more accurate seeking.
  • Added 3 modes for the stay on top option: always, never and while playing.

Version 0.6.5.1
  • Release Date: Nov 15, 2008
  • The subtitles when using the SSA/ASS library can now be further customized. It's possible to select the font, size, colors, bold, italic, outline, shadow...
  • (Linux) Now smplayer tries to follow the XDG Base Directory Specification for the config files. That means the now the configuration files will be saved under the directory $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/smplayer (or $HOME/.config/smplayer if $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not defined). If you want to keep your preferences, copy or move the files from $HOME/.smplayer to the new location.
  • Added some options in Preferences->Interface to configure the floating control.
  • The commandline option -ini-path has been removed and replaced with -config-path, which specifies the directory where smplayer will store its data (not only smplayer.ini).
Version 0.6.4
  • Release Date: Oct 25, 2008
  • Now the dialog to find subtitles can also download the subtitle file and load it in smplayer automatically.
  • (Linux) The black screen problem when using Compiz should really be fixed now.
  • Added support for encoding autodetection for subtitle files. Requires a mplayer compiled with enca support.
  • (Linux) Now it's possible to choose the audio device to be used with alsa (needs the application "aplay").
  • (Windows) Now it's possible to choose the audio device to be used with dsound.
  • (Windows) The menu Video->Screen displays now the actual available screens with their names.
  • Added the possibility to add consecutive files (video_01.avi, video_02.avi..) automatically to the playlist.

  • Now the options in preferences display a tooltip with a help message.
  • Now it's possible to change the video track.
  • Added the Galician translation.
Version 0.6.3.1
  • Release Date: Sep 29, 2008
  • This release includes a fix for an important bug in 0.6.3 which affected the version for Windows: the video window would be black on the first video played, or always if the user opened the preferences dialog before playing a video. In those cases "directx," was used as video driver but the -colorkey option was not passed to mplayer producing the problem. Windows Vista probably wasn't affected by this bug, as it uses a different video driver as default.
Version 0.6.3
  • Release Date: Sep 27, 2008
  • Two fixes for Windows Vista. Now IPv4 is used by default (connection to networks are faster). And now it really uses "gl:yuv=2:force-pbo:ati-hack" as the default video output driver. Note: this mode could give problems with some graphic cards (specially ATI), if you experience any, try the other gl variants, or just directx.
  • (Linux) Added a fix for a black screen problem when using Compiz.
  • Added an option to select the number of threads that mplayer will use for decoding (only works for MPEG-1/2 and some H.264 videos).
  • Added the possibility to disable the audio equalizer. Seems to be necessary to use the S/PDIF output.
  • Added some options to increase/decrease the speed by 1% and 4%. This allows to play 24 fps movies at 25 fps speed and vice versa.
  • Fix: sometimes the playlist is not shown. Added a workaround for the problem.
  • Added some checks to avoid crashes when selecting subtitle tracks.
  • (Windows) Added a new submenu Video->Screen to select the screen which will display the video when using directx.
  • The settings in smplayer.ini have been reorganized in several sections. (This also means most of your preferences will be lost and you will have to reconfigure smplayer again).
  • Added an option to mirror the video. And now it's also possible to flip and rotate the subtitles along with the image.
  • Added a new shortcut set (sda.keys) which can be loaded in the shortcut editor in preferences.
  • Added two new translations: Arabic and Kurdish.
Version 0.6.2
  • Release Date: Aug 15, 2008
  • Added an audio equalizer (please read Audio_equalizer.txt).
  • Added a dialog to search and download subtitles from opensubtitles.org (See Finding_subtitles.txt).
  • The toolbars can be configured. The user can remove, add or change the order of the buttons. Right now it can only be done by editing manuallythe configuration file. A graphical editor will be added in the next version. See Configuring_the_toolbars.txt.
  • The single instance port can now be chosen automatically by the application.
  • Possibility to compile a portable version which (by default) won't write anything outside the smplayer's folder. It won't write either anything in the Windows registry. See Portable_Edition.txt for details.
  • Added the Slovenian translation.
Version 0.6.1
  • Release Date: May 29, 2008
  • Now compact mode resizes the window, instead of leaving black borders.
  • Added an option in Preferences->Interface which allows the user to select his/her preferred GUI. This way it's easier to use the mini GUI, for those who prefer a simpler interface with few buttons.
  • One more fix for Qt 4.4. The option FAQ in the Help menu didn't work. * (Windows) Fix: zoom didn't work well (black blocks appeared) if using directx. * Added the Catalan translation.
