SMPlayer

Just stumbled across this

Not sure if this will work on ARM...but thought if it did it might come in handy
SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn't need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you'll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs.

One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave... don't worry, when you open that movie again it will be resumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume...

SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winning MPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats. But apart from providing access for the most common and useful options of MPlayer, SMPlayer adds other interesting features like the possibility to play Youtube videos or download subtitles.
I do see a variant on github specific for arm

per the chinese gobbledygook at the bottom (that I can't read...google translate says it says)
Embedded platform based on ARM processor, using QT4 cross-platform C + + graphical interface library, developed an embedded multimedia player. After compilation using the crossover compiler ARM-LINUX-GCC, it is migrated to a device on the arm platform.
