- Playing youtube videos on smplayer through smtube using the mpv player
I have tried vlc, mplayer, smplayer tried to play youtube videos in ubuntu, slackel and other distributions as well.
But upon moving the time slider to a new location within the video Smplayer crashes. Log file message reads...
MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: seek
I found that smtube and smplayer using mpv media player can play youtube videos without crashed.
In slackel 7.2 can install smplayer, mpv and latest smtube plus libass which is a dependency.
sudo slapt-get -u sudo slapt-get -i smplayer libass mpv smtube
then run smplayer and check from options in menus that mpv player is default player.
