SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play almost all video and audio formats, which means you don't need to install external codecs.
- The good
- Integrated codecs.
- The ability to search and download translations directly.
- Ability to watch YouTube videos from the player itself.
- The ability to change the player's skin.
- The bad
- It does not contain built-in tools for editing and converting video and audio.
SMPlayer has a simple and easy-to-use interface, but the most notable feature is its ability to remember and resume playback from the moment you stopped a media file using the same settings and the same volume.
Another great thing about SMPlayer is the integrated codecs, this way you don't need to search for and install the codecs separately!
