never show smilies ftw.
hakerdefo must be from one of those less sensitive places. sorry for sayin sorry then.
My only problem with UMPlayer is it is not actively maintained.
yep, while the sourceforge for umplayer itself goes back to 2011, the smplayer's umplayer seems to have its stable release as up to date as smplayer itself. though it is still a third of year behind smplayer's smtube.
smplayer 0.98 .22013-04-15
umplayer UMPlayer-0.95 2011-05-23
SMTube 1.8 2013-08-07
smplayer's umplayer 0.98.2 2013-04-15
.... but, in the unstable dir on sourceforge it seems to be all just windows exe's mostly.
a look on their svn smplayer's subversion
(no git?)[/edit] no sign of an umplayer... but there is smtube. has umplayer project been abandoned/merged?
umplayer's site lists their source dl page as sourceforge... :/ it also says it was " Last Update: 2013-04-10" (5 days before that sourceforge smplayer site added its latest umplayer) but i couldnt see any downloads more recent than the 2011, let alone any source. couldnt find any news on there about it either.
kinda leaves me wondering how official the sourceforge for smplayer is ^_^
i'll spare further rambles about my researches and simply ask this...
what about mpv?
lighter on the deps than mplayer, similar to mplayer2, and much smaller binary (9mb to about 1 and a half~ tho idk how that pans out with deps)
smtube says it works with anything... if
*tests mpv with a youtube url*
~oh, it works,
~oh! now i feel silly, there's the interface i had mistaken for umplayer. sry, i got the two mixed up earlier then. XD
but... on paper, mpv
looks pretty sweet, afaict.even if i think its overly simplified gui controls overlay is yuck, and that they needn't have bothered, lol
... havnt found ways to fine tune its youtube use yet, like i can with youtube-viewer
worth having a quick perusal of mpv's github's changes
apt-get show mpv tells us mpv_0.3.1-dmo1_amd64.deb depends on:

but remember, that's fair to compare to the deps of mplayer/mplayer2, rather than of smplayer/umplayer, which are just wrappers. looks heavy pile of deps, but under fair comparison, it's really not.
ok, that's enough
morning rambles. heh.
oh, i will add,
An email client is a must have application for any user.
a gross underestimation of how many users live off webmail, and have zero need for an email client.
also, an email client isnt much use ootb, and requires user-specific configuration. if you need email, you'll have internet access, and therefor can install your own. i reckon claws is an excellent choice for adding as an option in the welcome-script.  ~ which gets me thinkin... maybe the same is true of grsync too? meh, idk. maybe not so much. ~ [/edit]
searching for mpv skins is not easy, and often disturbing... search requires a lot of NOT/-
:/ wasnt even really searching for skins... just wanted to know if it could be reskinned. .... i am not gonna enter "re-skinned" in a search after some of the things i've just seen, and cant un-see. XD
~update, no mention of skin in their github, presumable if going for mpv, one is stuck with that gui. ... smplayer still looking strong in that fight.
