VLC.

(s)mplayer

anon026 01-20-2018 01:57 AM

smplayer.

Ook 01-22-2018 01:59 PM

mplayer cause I can run it directly from the console without a gui

ook@zzz:~$ mplayer dvd://1

Idk if the others can do this or not - it works for me and I'm too lazy to bother looking at anything else

VLC plays anything I need.

I use umplayer (I know, it's a dinosaur) but if I had to use something current I'd use SMplayer.

Shame smplayer isn't on here , but its only a front end for mplayer I suppose.

I don't know why VLC gets so much acclaim, try and watch a 4k UHD movie with it. It doesn't use any multithreading.

mpv is able to do this too.

I picked mpv because I use it, I think it's great, and I recently figured out its ffmpeg filters.

Will try smplayer and qmplay2 this year.

VamosBaby 02-03-2018 08:34 AM

I used mplayer in the past.

Nowadays, it's VLC for me.

Yeah, with no smplayer I'm not voting for any of them

each and every (s|u|gnome-|etc.)mplayer voter here should try out mpv.
it is essentially a fork of mplayer, and has been under very intense development for the last couple of years. it is _far_ superior to mplayer, and equally lightweight.

btw, smplayer can use it as a backend.

i really hope it will win this poll, and if not now, next year.

Actually now that you mentioned it I have tried it and I can't remember having any complaints. I didn't explore too much on its capabilities, I just thought it had too few features, but maybe I should give it a try again.
Thanks
