Clementine got little buggy with the 1.2 version, but it's still the best. gmusicbrowser is great, too.

As xmms is long dead and gone, and *all* others value user experience over functionality and thus clutter the desktop with useless cruft, I built my own player in perl/Tk based on the GUI of the old xmms using GStreamer.
Still happy with it after several years of use. Plays internet radio, CD's, MP3 streams etc etc and has NO visibility features at all

I fully agree with you about the clutter and cruft. Have you made your player publically available?

No, not yet, as nothing is documented.
I could do so however, but that would be early next year
(unless you would write the docs based on the script :)

I can't vote! There's no mplayer. Mplayer cl is always running on my box. It does so much for me it's hard to describe. Long ago I found audacious to be extremely capable but soon discovered it was a real cpu hog and never touched it again. Don't know if that's still the case.

Audacious is hands down the best featherweight audio player I have EVER found...use it easily 70% of the time. have had upwards of 150 songs in a single playlist and the thing has never used more than 8.6MB.
however, since I have a rather large collection, right at 212 GB, I use Clementine to keep it all in good order and for Jamendo, Grooveshark and podcasts. it's a bit more resource hogging in this latest incarnation, but it's still the best performer on my system.

I basically use Gnome-Mplayer for all media playback.

it would be nice to have audacity on the list. I use it for listening and editing.

AmaroK has plenty of features including display of lyrics and is integrated with KDE.

MPD with Sonata, MPC, and ncmpcpp. Sonata I use the most.
