Dragon Players great and I suppose it does what it sets out to do - but it's got a long way to beat VLC!

VLC - because it has always played what ever I've thrown at it.

VLC

VLC is the one application that I don't think I could live without. It is always one of the first things I install on a new system.

VLC and Xine

I use VLC most of the time, but sometimes the QT style settings require some tweaking to blend in with your GTK theme. Unless you use skins, in which case it doesn't matter When VLC isn't available, Xine works pretty well with Gxine front-end.

VLC - it's cross-platform, without the fuss.
