mplayer, xine, totem, kaffeine -- they are all excellent. But vlc is what I use the most.

Choice is a beautiful thing.

Once you start using MPlayer you wont ask for any other player

We (couple of friends) have created a Windows installer from the MPlayer windows binaries since a lot of people we know wanted to use it on Windows.

MPlayer Rocks!

What happened to Codeine?

Its the default by choice in our house. Sometimes one size fits one job is nice. We use Klear for viewing DVB-T forthe same reason. I agree that Kaffeine is a good, we used to use that before Codeine and Klear came into their own.

They are all good but for me, Kaffeine has always just worked flawlessly, even with weird, rare and unusual codecs. Did someone say amule?.. ;-)

VLC continues to surprise me - I wish I had more time to work with it and make it behave more like I imagine a video player should.

I'm fairly unsatisfied with the majority of those movie players. VLC is the best by far.

If you see kaffeine, codeine, or klear (DVB-T) remember there's a xine backend.

VLc is cross platform player - TRULY to its name - Video LAN player. I used it in places where i cant install EXE files. Its plays almost all Files without codecs - that what i think it makes a great player - whether the OS os Linux or other
