Glide

Play movies and audio files Source

Description

Glide is a simple and minimalistic media player relying on GStreamer for the multimedia support and GTK for the user interface. Glide should be able to play any multimedia format supported by GStreamer, locally or remotely hosted.

Once Glide is running you can use some menus to switch the subtitle and audio tracks, play, pause, seek and switch the window to fullscreen.
