MPlayer... Playlist... I don't know how to use it!!!


I installed MPlayer. This post reflects my curiosity regarding its Playlist. This isn't about how great MPlayer is or isn't. It's only about the playlist. I know I can use VLC or some other player. But I would like to learn how to get this playlist to do what I would like. I'm not a programmer and am thankful for them to create awesome software. I support free software.

I don't like using the MPlayer GUI playlist. I like the playlist in winamp with its drag and drop functionality and ability to save the list.

Does anyone know of an implementation of MPlayer where one could get that functionality? Or, have I completely missed the boat on how to use the playlist in MPlayer and that functionality already exists?

I've read:

And looked at:
~/.mplayer/ GUI playlist

But can't figure it out. I'm perfectly happy hearing that I am missing something obvious.

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.

I would suggest that you install SMPlayer. It's essentially mplayer but with an enhanced GUI.
