in preferences -> interface -> floating control.

display arabic subtitles correctly.

(2013-11-06 - 2013-11-08)
* Add a basic support to play blurays.

* Add support for the mp4/m4a files downloaded by youtube-dl.
Now when opening a mp4 file, smplayer will check if there's a
file with the same name but extension m4a. In that case the m4a file
will be used as the audio.

This is intented to play the DASH format from Youtube, where the video and
audio are in separated files. The application youtube-dl can download
those files.

This feature can be turned off by setting autoload_m4a to false in
smplayer.ini (no option in the GUI yet).

Notice: you need a recent version of mplayer or mplayer2. With older
versions seeking don't work with these files.

* The control for fullscreen mode has been rewritten and improved.
Now it shows over the video (not reducing the video) in all

It can cause that the menu bar won't be visible with some fonts.

* Start to implement presets for the audio equalizer.
