Too bad I can't pick three

Xine, VLC, and mplayer are great apps that (when properly installed) can play just about anything. I like gxine for it's graphical interface, mplayer for it's non-graphical interface, and I voted for VLC because it has everything covered and works consistantly well. Usually one of the first apps I install on a new system.

I use XBMC's dvd-player to watch DVD's, but honestly I think it's a bit clunky for watching videos. I'll use VLC to simply watch simple videos. I do like the options available for XBMC though for actually watching full DVD's.

Hey Hoholala, can you answer a question for me please.
I use kplayer, when i area where video is played goes blanc until playback is resumed. With Smplayer, is this behaviour the same, or does it show you the frame that the video is paused on.
This is one feature i miss from kaffeine.

As previously mentioned, GUI frontends for mplayer aren't included in this poll.

In my opinion VLC is the best and the safest choice. You cannot go wrong with it.
