I'm running debian stable (Stretch) and have had problems with
SMPlayer ever since I upgraded to Stretch. I'm running the older
versions of xorg and xserver, in case that makes any difference.
I'm seeing the bug reported as #867115, and I'm forwarding this
copy of the mplayer log as this doesn't seem to be reported
thus far. I note there may be differences in how the option is
reported "noquiet", "-noquiet" and "--noquiet"

Error parsing option noquiet (option not found)
Setting command line option '--noquiet=' failed.
Exiting... (Fatal error)
I'd be happy to test modifications to this command line,
but as I'm unfamiliar with the application, I thought
I should seek advice first.
