The MPlayer-based SMPlayer open-source media player project now has experimental support for playing back non-protected Blu-ray disc videos.

SMPlayer 14.3 was released yesterday and with this new version one of the leading features is the experimental support for Blu-ray discs, as long as they don't use any form of copy-protection. SMPlayer 14.3 also has new presets for the audio equalizer, rewritten full-screen mode support, improved YouTube support, better support for multimedia keys, support for compiling against the Qt5 tool-kit, and many other changes.

Those interested in more information on SMPlayer 14.3 can visit the project's SourceForge site.
