Pure, unadulterated mplayer.

If you need a GUI frontend, UMPlayer, gnome-mplayer or SMPlayer would do. With proper codecs (eg: gstreamer-ffmpeg) Totem also works for me.

VLC. Saves me headache. I already have enough to worry about as it stands let alone trying to figure out why I can't properly load a stream from my media server. It just works.
