I'm a big fan of Mplayer, mainly on the command line.

It was a toss yup between VLC and Totem ... But VLC won out due to the fact it requires little or no setup or install of codecs ... Works fine as soon as you get it.

Mplayer. It can be smplayer or gmplayer but it works. Then there is xine that I use extensively.
Well for the fans of vlc. Mplayer has the advantage of playing a video on the cli! Can anyone beat that? This is something that has taken me by surprise when I accidently played a .mov file rather than .mp3 file on the cli.
Great work mplayer team and thanks for this wonderful and flexible software.

mplayer - I've spent too long learning the keyboard shortcuts to want to learn new ones to do the same thing
