SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn’t need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you’ll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install 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 be resumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume…
SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winning MPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats.

Although many people consider VLC the best video player, the truth is SMplayer is at least equal if not better than it. Using it for the past years it never failed on me. It plays any video file and although has so many options/features, you can set it up to look very simple and beautiful. SMplaye’s worst feature is its default skin, which looks very old and cluttered. For TROM-Jaro we set it up in a way that is simple and modern and matches the theme.
