I'd say Helix is the best representation of Real on Linux. If there is sufficient demand we can also add the traditional "Real" player, but I left it off since it's based on Helix.

I use gxine and mplayer but I do prefer gxine. It's just very simple to use and doesn't get in my way at all. Since gxine is based on xine, xine gets my vote.

VLC BABY!

I just couldn't live without being able to retranscode anything I can watch. Plus it can play almost everything.

Xine for simplicity, Mplayer for multi-videotype-support..

I'll flip a coin for which one I shall vote for..

Heads = xine
Tails = mplayer

and the result is..

TAILS.. Congratulation Mplayer, you got my vote!

Thumbs up KMplayer

This year I started using KMplayer. I like it because it is small and fast and the user interface gives as much room as possible to video. Too bad you don't have KMplayer on the list, so I voted for Kaffeine which I was using before KMplayer.
