Multimedia Application of the Year


Another tough poll as some apps are not directly related. Next year this will be broken into one poll for audio apps and one poll for video apps.

There's a late comer for video named "Totem" (it is installed by default on Mandrake 9.2, I had to install xine afterwards !)
Next year I will vote for XMMS (version 1.2.8 did not make it through Mandrake 9.2... still have to wait, thanksfully 1.2.7 is rock stable !

i have to go with XMMS, with mplayer a close second. of course mplayer is cool as h3ll, but XMMS is a true workhorse and practically never leaves my desktop. and with all the day in and day out punishment, the thing never fails. great app.

xine totally rocks, even allowed me to view a quicktime (granted, it was an old one). plays cd's and oggs and it was a piece of cake to get it to play dvd's, just had to install a couple of libdvd things (including libdvdcss). I still use xmms for oggs though. It's smaller and very well suited. But if you're looking for a 'best of' in a 'multimedia' category, has to be xine over xmms.

Oh geeze, this list is really out of date:
Totem, GStreamer, Rhythmbox, there's a nice little music player in the works called eina, a sample editor called Marlin. Ok it's all GStreamer-related so I guess I should say that I think that GStreamer wins.

GStreamer isn't really an app, it's a framework, so it's kind of misplaced here.

xmms is awesome, mplayer and xine are both good, however, for basic music experience, look no further, xmms is the answer.

Here, here! My vote went to gstreamer, but it was really ment for Rhythmbox and Totem. Maybe there should be a nomination period for Members Choice Awards candidates.
