How to use SMPLAYER with omxplayer as backend ?

I have installed Smplayer and changed Multimedia Engine to /usr/bin/omxplayer.

Now, when I try to play video it says

Oops Something went wrong.

/usr/bin/omxplayer.bin: unrecognized option '--no-config'

SMPLAYER is a front end for mplayer or mplayer2. You cannot use it for omxplayer.

For omxplayer you have to use one of the GUIs developed by community members, e.g. my omxplayerGUI.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer

Please don't misunderstand but the fact is I dont install anything outside of the main repos. I guess I will have to manage without a GUI.
