  • By default the screenshots are saved in the user's pictures folder instead of the SMPlayer's config folder.
  • Now it's possible to change the opensubtitles server.
  • Youtube: seeking is slow with flv videos, so now flv videos have the lowest priority.
  • Youtube: now it's possible to search and download videos from youtube. This is provided by an external application (in linux you have to install an independent package: smtube).
