I've been using smplayer with mpv on 13.1 and TW on a 2.67GHZ Core2Duo and
Radeon PCIe since getting several private and public responses Saturday. It's
mostly good. Video and sound work well, but with the default skin and DVB
satellite transport streams I've been playing, dragging the progress button
usually doesn't have any effect, springing back either to wherever it was, or
to the start, on release. Only the buttons on either end will reliably
advance or reverse, and only by tiny increments, which when a large position
change is wanted, takes a really really long time, a ton of clicking, and a
lot of mouse movement to undo when overshoot occurs.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
