Audacity is a pretty amazing audio editing environment, I would pay good money for it if it weren't already free.

It's got to be xine

xine has a better framework than mplayer
mplayer doesn't support d&d play lists
and xine does a much better job on DVDs
I'm looking forward to A'rpi's mplayer g2
re-write though

I voted GStreamer because actually I wanted to vote Totem. But perhaps I should've voted Xine because the only backend Totem works reliably with, is Xine! :-/

Another one for Totem

Didn't vote because Totem isn't on the list. XMMS would get my vote of those available.

Totem for Gnome!

For the Gnome Desktop, my vote goes for TOTEM!

It's so well integrated and works great...

But a month before, I had always used MPLAYER... Definitively the one...

So, since Totem isn't in the list, mplayer got my vote...
