SMPlayer 0.7.1 has been released with improved YouTube support: the previous version has added support for playing YouTube videos and the latest SMPlayer 0.7.1 comes with a new tool that lets you search for YouTube videos too. This is done through an external application called SMTube, which should now be installed automatically with SMPlayer.
Other changes in the latest SMPlayer 0.7.1 include:
- Now it’s possible to change the opensubtitles server
- By default the screenshots are saved in the user’s pictures folder instead of the SMPlayer’s config folder
- bug fixes
To install the latest SMPlayer 0.7.1 in Ubuntu, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rvm/smplayer sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install smplayer
For other Linux distributions and Windows, see the SMPlayer download page.
