Video Multimedia Application of the Year
 
Yes, we know many of these apps are not directly comparable. The real question should be, which one does its job the best.

MPlayer overall is the best, though xine has better DVD playback (less buggy from what I can tell)

Totem is none the worse than Mplayer.

Last year, Gstreamer wouldn't play practically anything I had, and people recommended uninstalling totem-gstreamer and installing totem-xine as the first step in multimediafying your Gnome desktop. It has come of age and will play practically anything if you have the codec for it, and it has a plugin for win32, as well. Hoozah!

MPlayer and Xine both do the job for me could not ask for more....

I voted "xine" since I use it as the Kaffeine backend.

MasterC 01-30-2006 01:55 PM

MythTV? Or does it fit somewhere else?

I used to use Xine for video, but now I'm a mplayer convert.

Mplayer will play anything, and if your lucky, it'll make you a coffee when you wake up in the morning.

Mplayer is the one and only I love.

ozar 01-30-2006 08:01 PM

voted xine, but like mplayer quite well, too

hmarksbr 01-30-2006 10:02 PM

Cannot vote without kaffeine or codeine. Put there in the poll, please

xanas3712 01-30-2006 10:38 PM

Kaffeine as well, using xine as the backend but I don't like the xine gui.

Alessandro 01-30-2006 10:57 PM

Kaffeine here too. It plays absolutely everything and it does it well.

suslik 01-30-2006 11:11 PM

Was Kaffeine sorted out at some previous stage? What gives?!

x Kaffeine
