Mplayer is great for video and audio (DVDs and CDs).
It playes better than ogle in some ways (even though it doesn't have the menu thing going.)
It works in console mode, and also with aalib. (and alot of other libraries aswell)
Sorry, but i'm gonna have to jump on the "Whinge about no kaffine" bandwagon. Where is it? its the only media player i can get to play .avi files! I voted Mplayer because i use it as an XMMS backend. Although i must say i can't ever seem to play DVD's on anything ,xine,mplayer,kaffine etc don't seem to regonise DVD's properly. so im forced to use Cedega to run PowerDVD (oh how low have i sunk?)
