In Windows, I used Winamp's library of music videos function, and launch.com to see my favorite videos, both of which don't work in Linux (as far as I know).
PS If you interested in making a simply Windows DVR check out my website at http://www.geocities.com/black_ultimate/DVRhome.html
Winamp's Linux version is called XMMS, it's exactly the same, I can't stat now if the developers are the same or just share the same codebase (remember that Winamp is free).
I use MPlayer or Kaffeine+Xine and there are lot's more.
I see any kind of videos, divx, avi, mpg, even wmv...
I haven't had problems with this: I go to a website, click on a video and watch it (or dload it).
MPlayer is the preffered player even for many Windows users. There even are Livecd linux distributions which consist only on xine or mplayer (or gstreamer), and a kernel so that you copy the movie into a cd/dvd-rom with this mini-linux, boot from it and can watch the flick w/o installing anything...
Another tip: TiVO works with Linux.
I would give MPLayer a try, regardless if Windows or Linux:
