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)

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!

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

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.
