Windows 10: Playing video with SMplayer

    Playing video with SMplayer


    Hello,
    On my 'new' pc there is a "smplayer portable" media player, when I right click on a clip and select "play with..." selecting this player, I get a system error about a missing 'qtcore4.dll" file, saying to try reinstalling the player, looking into the player's folder, I find this file. If I open the player first, then drag the clip into the player's window - it plays the clip.
    Originaly the player was a 'zip' file, it did not have to be installed, just unzipped to a folder, and the .exe file was sent to desktop to make the shortcut.
    Any idea what to do ? (I like this player)
    Thanks for answers

    Hi there

    can't help you with that one - but try VLC player (Free) --and supports almost every known video and audio codec on the planet including the newer H265 / HEVC stuff designed for UHD 4K video etc.

    Cheers

    (My guess is Motim's downloaded the basic player and not the extras)
