    SMPlayer releases....

    Is everybody keeping up with SMPlayer releases? 0.8.3 came out at the end of 2012 and with UMPlayer fading out SMPlayer is still the best choice for an MPlayer gui...

    What's the story behind that? (I've never actually used UMPlayer).

    UMPlayer was a nice fork of SMPlayer that appeared when SMPlayer development was quiescent. It added a nice feature of a youtube browser and a few other improvements. When SMPlayer roared back to life rvm imcoporated and improved some of the UMPlayer changes and it looks like UMPlayer is now sleeping. Details here:

    A much more civilised fork than others that have occurred recently .

    Re: FFmpeg Mplayer VLC - News & Howtos

    Not such recent news perhaps but there has been substantial work done on the native MPlayer gui known as GMPlayer in recent times. I have started building it again, just need to find the best possible skin, the default skin is a little old looking . My screenshot shows GMPlyer with 'Blue', and yes that is the Bee Gees with 'Stayin' Alive', the song at the centre of several Basic Life Support advertisements recently!!!

    Edit: Added 'Clearlooks' with Bruce Lee sizzling across the screen!! Clearlooks was created by the man doing all of the gui work on MPlayer.

    I am strictly cli, config file and scripts with mplayer, just a window and keyboard commands for me. Never got on with any of the mplayer guis. Starting playing with cvlc as well, but might need to remap keyboard commands, small and fading brain can't cope with two sets of kbd shortcuts

    afade - fade in fade out audio filter added

    Just spotted a new commit: afade, which allows for fading in and out of audio (to go along with fade for video)

    Seems this works at the beginning and the end of a video clip, but can be more tricky to implement in the middle of a clip? Not had a chance to recompile to try it out yet.

    syntax:

    Really minor little 'info' deal I find handy
    While one can open the individual man pages in a terminal, ect. I always found that to be a hassle
    Unity has a help lens with a man page scope, makes it easy to open & search any man

    Also there are bookmark, find, & print options, screen shows some

    To put my money where my mouth is I have written up the installation of skins with GMPlayer:

    The 'Noskin' skin is an interesting move . Anybody have some favourite skins that I should add in there?

    Newish filter: curves. Presets have been added a few days ago.
    Code:
    ffplay input.mkv -vf curves=preset=color_negative
    ffmpeg -i input.mkv -vf curves=preset=strong_contrast output.mkv
    Also, if you're a student you should consider participating in Google Summer of Code with FFmpeg. You can get paid for coding and get to interact with an open-source project. See FFmpeg Summer of Code 2013 for more info.

    FFmpeg documentation update: now you can use "man ffmpeg-all" and get a very long, monolithic output as an alternative to the separated-by-component style such as "man ffmpeg-filters".
