A new version of SMPlayer, 14.9, is available for Ubuntu. There are packages for Ubuntu 12.04 (precise), 14.04 (trusty) and 14.10 (utopic) in our PPA.
This is a maintenance release. This version provides a new fix for Youtube playback. We also improved the option to search for subtitles. There’s a new feature, requested by many users: now it’s possible to shut down the computer after playback.
Notice however that now the themes and skins use a new format. Now instead of installing hundreds of png files, the images are packaged in resource files. That means that you need to update the packages smplayer-themes and smplayer-skins as well.
To update, just enter these commands in a terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install smplayer smtube smplayer-themes smplayer-skins
Packages for Windows will be available soon.
