I voted for VLC but I like the older version than current because it open up only one window. Some other features I like:
- adjust subtitle and audio with: h, j, k, l.
- background for subtitle

VLC is my favorite for most things. I've just had an easy time with it over the years so it will always be my #1

VLC plays the media with higher sound than others. It plays every thing. I like this.

I like totem, especially now that it has support for DVD menus. It has a clear, friendly layout and the YouTube/BBC integration is excellent. Now if you're listening, get the subtitle and audio track selection and I will LOVE this forever.

Question RealPlayer?

No RealPlayer? I think it should be an option.

Helix is the Open Source version of RealPlayer.
