I vote for Xine, the first I ever used, and so far I have not found any better for what I need it for.

As above, MythTV.

Or even better, how about a category for standalone media software?

No question about this - mplayer. It will play anything, no troubles with codecs, runs on crap machines very well, perfect keyboard controls... this is the best :-)

Funny you mentioned that. I've been using it on Windows for a long time now. I decided to see if it'd actually install successfully on Linux (as it hadn't before) and it did! Gruvey! It'll do anything, like stream those radio stations from Streamtuner that XMMS is too lazy or pick to play lately. (and, no Amarok can't stand up with VLC, but it will, after some more bugfixes...)

Kaffien is a xine frontend. I use it when I'm in KDE, but mostly go with xine-ui.

Aps like gxine and kaffine made advances in usibility this past year that led xine to overcome mplayer this past year, IMHO.

If you tweak it right, you can get better results from mplayer, but it's too much of a pain in the ass.
