Kaffeine. I kinda like mplayer, but haven't used it in ages. Not as my main player anyway. I have it actually installed in a Windows machine. Not because I wanted to, but SimpleDivX users mplayer, so...
Anyway, how are things with mplayer today? Still disagreeing with DVD-makers that menu's should not exist? I remember having a lot of trouble with mplayer finding the right "track" to play a DVD-movie. Since most DVD's here are multi-lang/subtexted, I had a hard time using mplayer and started to use ogle for DVD-playback, so I just stopped using it all together and decided to use a player that does everything and does everything correctly in a standard manner...
Distribution: Mandriva One 2007, openSuSE 10.2, FC6, Ubuntu 6.10
mplayer is good, it has better navigation than xine. But, when I was playing my dvd, the dvd menu wouldn't come out and the sound was played 3 second before the video. When I ran on the terminal it said "YOUR CPU IS TOO SLOW TO PLAY DVD". Well, I use PIII 800 MHz with 256 MB RAM and 32 MB RIVA TNT2. But, I used kaffeine with xine-engine and my dvd played smoothly, even the menu appeared. so I choose kaffeine.
