I use mplayer/mplayer2 (mainly with smplayer/gnome mplayer/kplayer as the frontend) far more than the others. Though I normally have at least 3 installed in case of failure to play issues, mostly vlc but sometimes others like xine or kaffeine.

Kplayer is a frontend for mplayer.

While VLC is a great player, the frontend has never been that great IMO. Not quite sure about 'windowsy', but I think I get what you mean. It always feels like its following its own settings rather than global desktop setings. Yeah, thats not the whole story, but I cant quite seem to be able to quite describe other minor niggles with the VLC interface. At least not without poking it then writing a 1000 word post LOL.

mplayer, it was the only player in which I could play the classic video, bird.avi. I could not play it in vlc and Totem.

True, they are indeed different. I never implied they were same.
It seems i must not have been clear enough. Read cascade9's post, he was more specific about i was referring too.

VLC because it is usually simpler.

MPV for me :)

This year I have switched from mplayer to mpv, wh/I am finding to be superior to both mplayer and mplayer2. If you prefer mplayer* and command line tools, you may want to check it out:

http://mpv.io/

Jeremy: Too late to add mpv?? Lots of development happending there as well, so I think perhaps deserving of "the year" award. See here for sampling of changes:

Hello
I, too, am voting "mplayer" but only because there is no category for SMPLAYER, and oddly, sometimes it works when mplayer is broken so I'm assuming it has some of it's own libraries.
