if we update ...

do we still need to download the codecs plugin?

Don't be an uberPr∅. They are stinky.

Few Things

First, please leave the default theme. The only app we've ever replaced the default theme on is CoolPlayer+ and we did that because the default theme is pretty bad and affected usability of the product... and we appropriately renamed the app to CoolPlayer+ to differentiate this. No such change is required with SMPlayer as the default theme is quite good. If you wish to include a PortableApps.com theme, it should be optional.

Second, don't make a portable codecs pack. We won't be hosting it for download. Some of the things within it are of questionable legality in terms of distribution. And it's all closed source. The standard plugins pack from the SMPlayer site can be used with the portable version.

Third, don't use the multi-installer for themes. It should be used sparingly as we'll be changing the way it works at some point. Themes should be handled as they are with the regular app (individually and users are free to add them if they want). Most users don't care about themes and will leave it as the default so you're just adding size. Only include the themes that are included with a local install and, if necessary, a PortableApps.com custom theme.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Okay.
  1. Okay, makes sense...
  2. Makes sense, but it is said that one of the biggest thing that SMPlayer is known for is (strangely) the wide variety of formats it can play. So there will have to be an easy way to install these codecs.
  3. Yeah, that makes plenty of sense.
  4. I was thinking, SMPlayer does have a background pic. It could be changed...

That's strange.

That must mean the DefaultData isn't working.

This is really weird.

I found that it creates a file settings instead of a folder...
At this point, I don't know why this is happening.

Looks like a nice project, seems to be a good alternative to VLC, which is already an awesome piece of code.

Updated

this version should fix the bug where the settings subfolder isn't being created. (It turns out the SettingDirectory label area was deleted).
I was wondering this, would the backup app pickup everything under Data or settings?

Codecs folder wrong

The codecs installer try to use folder x:PortableApps/SmplayerPortable (without space) instead of /Smplayer Portable

I've just tested and it seems to be working fine.
I'll try later in a different computer to see if it keeps all the settings and everything works equally fine.

Progress?

Is this app still being worked on, or is MPlayer Portable deterring development.

By the way, the SMPlayer developers have made their own portable version of the 0.6.2 release.
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/smplayer/smplayer-portable_0.6.2.7z

I downloaded their portable version and replaced the files with the PortableApps version and everything seems to work fine.

I didn't check to see if it was writing files to the local drive or not.

Slump

for one thing, I can't play DVD's.
Another is the screenshots are disabled.
And I have 5x homework now that I have 5 teachers.
And my parents banned me from IRC.
Anyone can take over SMPlayer until I get some more time.

In the absence of digitxp, and as he has given his permission, can I post a dev test for SMPlayer 0.6.7?
