Open Source Media Player


I'm looking for a media player (open source) which will play all or most video files. I'm running on Mandrake 10.1 KDE. Any suggestions???

Mandrake uses urpmi by default and not apt-get. Setup the plf rpm repositories using the instructions from easyurpmi and then do as root "urpmi mplayer".
