You can also try Smplayer. Much better than vlc.

^ +1 mpv, mplayer2 or Smplayer front-end of these two ahead it is a good suggestion and recommendation.

I use mpv myself right to say I'm delighted with his performance. Or use both Smplayer/VLC, VLC/mpv why not? When one fails, try the other.

Some applications like Handbrake or Bittorrent clients have options to shut down the system when finished. I think the only player I saw with that was mpc-qt, but maybe it's something in your xine-ui profile that's causing it to lock up. The usual procedure is to find where in your /home they are stored, back them up, and try starting with a fresh, clean profile.

OK, I installed MVP and SMPlayer. Of the two I prefer MVP. But neither of them are Xine.

Additionally, I tried mapping keystrokes to VLC to be more like Xine and I quickly ran into a problem. Xine uses single key keyboard shortcuts to toggle several frequently used settings, like full screen. VLC insists on different keys to turn full screen on and off.

Xine behaves the same after installing MVP and SMPlayer, it still locks up the system at the end of videos. So onward to the backport.

# echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/
home:/stevepassert/Debian_9.0/ /' >
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'

I eventually got Synaptic to accept the backport repository. I’d rather not fully trust (import the key) any third party repository, so my intent was to update Xine and then remove the sources.list entry.

I appreciate everyone’s efforts, but I will just get have to get used to VLC.

it's mpv, not mvp.
and i'm 100% sure you can set the keybinds just the way you're used to with it.

i just looked, xine is still under active development.
i think you should tell them about your problems.

You can use a repository without its key if you add [trusted=yes] after the the "deb" in its entry in your sources.list. But using the key is recommended. I think that the OBS, which is run by openSUSE after all, has built up enough trust after all this time...

Ok, thanks for that. I tried it and Xine still locks up at the end of videos. I appreciate your time and effort. I'm giving up on this. When I have some time I will try a reinstall from the standard Gnome iso.
