Indeed, smplayer is great. I'm using it for over a year already, and I'm very
happy with it. I think it's a near perfect GUI wrapper for mplayer. It doesn't
bring all of mplayer's features to the GUI, but a good amount of them. A huge
advantage over using mplayer directly (what I had been doing for years before
discovering smplayer), is, that you don't need to restart the player (and then
jump back to where you have been in the file) when changing things like
subtitle track, audio track, etc.
