Install SMPlayer 15.9.0 – Front-End for MPlayer on Ubuntu OS

SMPlayer 15.9.0 which was released last month, is a complete front-end app for MPlayer, and comes with basic features like playing videos, DVDs, and VCDs to more advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and more. Notable feature of SMPlayer is, it remembers the settings of all files you play. When you watch a movie and leave, when you open that movie again it will resume at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume.
