Install SMPlayer 14.3.0 with YouTube and Mplayer support in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty/13.10 Saucy/Ubuntu 12.10/Ubuntu 12.04/Linux Mint 16/14/13 and other Ubuntu derivatives

Smplayer is a complete media player for Windows and Linux. It uses the award-winning MPlayer as playback engine which is capable of playing most video and audio formats (avi, mkv, wmv, mp4, mpeg... see list). It uses its own codecs, so you don't need to install any codec packs.
One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave... don't worry, when you open that movie again it will resume at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume...


List of Features:
  • Complete preferences dialog, where you can change the key shortcuts, colors and fonts of the subtitles, and many more.
  • Filters. Many video and audio filters are available: deinterlace, postprocessing, denoise... and even a karaoke filter (voice removal).
  • Seeking by mouse wheel. You can use your mouse wheel to go forward or backward in the video. The mouse buttons can also be customized.
