This is a good video player, just the default theme is very ugly. I changed it to MPC, and now it it very pleasant.

Switched from VLC, Faster. I never found anything better than VLC till i found this. I like changing the skins.

It should be noted that VLC supports skins now, however I do use SMPlayer. It just seems to be that bit quicker and plays digital formats with far fewer artifacts.

Ugly look on Win platform and slow default render settings. Icon and default skin really weird and bad.

  1. Not a review, a comment.
  2. Yeah, a better default look is needed. You can go disable the top toolbar and change the skin to Gonzo and it looks a lot cleaner/better. That should be the default IMHO.
  3. Slow render settings? Performed better than VLC out of the box on my Windows laptop (now running OpenSUSE, so can't test further).
