Running under Linux

Tried to run Perfect Player under Linux. I used:

  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • wine (tried 1.4, 1.6 and 1.7) at WINEARCH=win32
  • winetricks

To run the program it is need to be installed WMP10 (or 9). The best way to install it is winetricks utility.
After that Perfect Player can be installed and launched.
Howewer, I found that this way it works only as channels manager and playlist generator.
Playing videos doesn’t work 🙁 – guess, this would need more tweaking.
I do not have much experience working with wine so if someone can make it to play videos, please, let me know.
Suppose, that if you force WMP to play videos, then Perfect Player will also can play.

      Kodi is not always an option for so many reasons. But even if it was, Kodi is not way better. It is nowhere near as smooth. If you had said Plex i would understand, but Perefect Player is still much smoother/faster.

    Kodi bugging out completely with my Subscription (Think of Darth Vader) and it is useless. They recommend perfect player on their forums, but I am running ubuntu 17.10. Any sign of a build for linux?
