after a bit more stuffing around it seems it only effects certan groups of files
Can you also check what video codec this is that causes the problem ?
MKV is only a container which can use numerous of audio & video codecs.
uncheck /Smplayer/Options/Preferences/Interface/Hide video window when playing audio files
