To me VLC is the most satisfying cross-platform Video Player (especially the latest 0.9.8a with cute Qt4 interface). Sadly, many users don't know the true VLC player functionality like it can do good Video codec job, if not best! Over all, VLC rocks (oops, with those .ogg files of Linux video presentations etc).

Xine. It does it for me and really fills most of my needs but VLC and Mplayer are also nice.

It's a toss-up between mplayer and VLC... but I'm going with VLC this year.
