voted Exaile. intuitive and full of features. i know it copied Amarok, but this is what i use (for GTK+).
btw, its progress bar is priceless when looking for specific speech parts, in contrast with "standard" GTK players like Rhythmbox or Listen.
I'm not really for playing back media on linux.
Too often I noted not enough driver support.
In the past I could not playback video except dirthered, and by the time the videodrivers where available, I couldn't find .mkv or .ogg decoders.
my all time favorite is mpc, windows only.
Other than MPC,I tried zoom player and VLC. the latter being better.
What, Herrie didn't make the list? Everybody I know uses Herrie! Well, actually I've never met anyone who uses it besides myself... But I'm sure there must be at least 20 or 30 million out there... somewhere
Amarok is the media player for Linux today, even though, I use mostly Rhythmbox. However, if you ask me, the player with most potential is SongBird. The ease way of installing addons and skins, pretty much like Firefox, may give it an edge in the future. That, and the fact it works easily and consistent across platforms may yet play an important role in a few years.
