Since SMPlayer is built with Qt and is based on MPlayer, this makes it quite portable, since MPlayer and Qt are already available on all major operating systems. On the operating systems on which SMPlayer has not yet been ported to, it is likely possible to run the application through binary compatibility with another Unix or Linux.
In addition to the Windows packages, official binary packages are provided for Ubuntu. Many distributions provide packages in their repositories.
As of version 0.6.7, SMPlayer is distributed with a NSIS generated setup (previously Inno Setup). The installer is capable of downloading and installing the latest MPlayer and MPlayer codec packages during setup, although an alternative installer is available with MPlayer included for off-line installs.
"Portable" (no installer) versions are also available in PortableApps format. An independent doom9 developer offers different Windows packages based on MPlayer binaries ported by Gianluigi Tiesi.
- UMPlayer offered integration with SHOUTcast streams and support for Mac OS X. The SMPlayer FAQ advises UMPlayer users that the same features have been added and that SMPlayer is more frequently updated.
- SMPlayer2: An abandonded fork targeted at mplayer2 users, as of 2014 replaced by SMPlayer with mpv.
