Torn between mplayer and VLC, but I think I used mplayer a bit more this year.

I've been a long fan and user of MPlayer but VLC is now really better than MPlayer - even as an application called from terminal.

Well, how to vote for my favorite XBMC. It's more than just a player.

I don't see KPlayer on the list. KPlayer is a KDE player which uses an MPlayer backend. Slackware includes KPlayer in its tree. Arch Linux has it in AUR.

recently discovered Showtime
I use it on PS3 and Linux it's good alternative to bloated and slow XBMC when used to watch video from internet sources.
Got VLC remote setup to control video from phone or stream to it.
This year i haven't managed to setup home network television, maybe next year i will test and develop solutions for IPTV/network streaming .

Could someone please add SMplayer as a voting option? Much better than VLC IMHO...

At this time we do not plan on adding any of the mplayer front end/GUI options to the category, although I'm open to discussion on why we should.
