Funny, but I use command-line mplayer and feed it with list of arguments. Maybe it could be added in this poll also?

mplayer classifies themselves as a "movie player". While it does play audio, we'll keep it solely in the video category.

I've really become a fan of amaroK lately. I'll have to give it my vote because I did use it a lot in 2006 and enjoy it. XMMS is a tough omission for me because I do use it a lot but really only for a quick sound here or there.

mpg123 is a nice toy...

OK, now that I have no chance to vote for mplayer, I propose TiMidity - software renderer for MIDI.

I think we should distinguish between xmms and xmms2 (the former of which is almost ubiquitous but now unmaintained, the latter of which is in “alpha” — they’re definitely run by two different types of users).

Audacious added. XMMS2 would seem to me to simply be the next generation or version of XMMS.

Doesn't look like there has been a release of TiMidity++ since 2004.
