Woke up today and found this in my rss feed: “SMPlayer 14.9 available for Ubuntu”.
SMPlayer was / is my favorite media player since I have installed it in I think 2008. It is still being actively developed. Bug fixes and new features are being added.
This is a maintenance release. This version provides a new fix for Youtube playback. We also improved the option to search for subtitles. There’s a new feature, requested by many users: now it’s possible to shut down the computer after playback.
I have requested the “PC shutdown after stop playing” feature back in 2010 when I was still using PCLinuxOS. Good to see that it has made its way to the project ;D.
Here is my PKGBUILD for the qt4 svn version of SMPlayer: https://andrzejl.eu:30303/pkgbuilds/smplayer-qt4-svn.tar.gz
Its working great as always. Job well done rvm. Again :).
