I stumbled onto umplayer a while back. For the most part it's like many other mplayer frontends (particularly smplayer). It is one of the better such programs though. The youtube playing is pretty nice, though 2 weaknesses with it are that it can't play playlists & you can't paste youtube links into it (to play youtube vids in it, you use it's youtube search function to find the video, then click the resulting link).

I see this new smplayer doesn't support youtube playlists. However, it does support youtube links in conventional playlists (m3u, pls, etc).

Also, if you open the playlist editor via options->playlist, you can drag/drop youtube links directly to it.

It looks like that fork knifed mencoder from its features. I haven't seen a difference in playback between mplayers so far.

Mplayer2 is a bit more responsive when skipping around, regular mplayer goes to black screen for an eternity while seeking to the new position.

SMplayer 7.1 now has the standard panel listing youtube search results!

---Edit (Apr. 1, 2012)---
It uses a component called smtube. It can now use other players including mplayer & vlc.
