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.

    Just use kodi in linux is way better

    • VureBufe says:

      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?

          Please work on linix version. It would be greatly appreciated !!

            Nikman There is no such player for linux. I have searched high and low and tried many solutions. Most of the Kodi solutions are very slow compared to PP.

            Why not be the first and set the trend?

            I suggest you might want to loog into Linux as well as a kodi addon.

    Hi Nikman
    Do you hear about “snap” or “flatpack”? These are two ways to “pack” some programs and run in any Linux distribution. Even Skype has a Snap version. Snap belong to Canonical (“owner” of Ubuntu) and Flatpak is “independent community”. Maybe there is a way to make a Perfect Player Linux Version.
    Kind regards
