SMplayer's front-end design and code (I like qt apps) are why I use it. I never found other Mplayer options like KMplayer very appealing and would most likely go with something quite different. I understand your point though so I guess I'll just vote for Mplayer.

Thanks for replying.

I use VLC for short clips. But for movies/youtube i recently started using XBMC - it is the only Linux player that has REAL HW decoding (the real Xvba, not VAAPI) for AMD cards/APUs.

VLC is clearly head and shoulders above the rest in this category. However, MPLayer has always been a favorite of mine and I could easily get by with MPlayer as my only audio and video player.

Should there be a separate mplayer and mplayer2? Or are they close enough that this poll is considering them the same thing?

Agreed, I watch all my movies with XBMC, nothing else compares! But to just watch a 30 video clip on my desktop/laptop it's always vlc.
