Why Cinelerra but not Kino or mpegtools? I think you need to seperate video/multimedia players from the editors.

And of the PLAYERS, no doubt about it, MPlayer will even take the WMV crap I fling at it. Sure, it ain't pretty, but it gets me there.

Having only used Totem and RealPlayer, and since RealPlayer wasn't on the list, I'd have to say Totem.

That's a difficult choice: Xine or Mplayer. I voted for Xine but Mplayer is my fall-back player.

I used MPlayer for some time ... but then something weird happenned... every video was out of sync ... I could never put it to work properly ... the sound was always with some delay ... so I tried Xine ... and it worked just fine! I've tried to use the same settings in MPlayer without luck .... so I always use Xine from now on!

MPlayer seems very cool! but I couldn't fix it so I eventually uninstalled it completely!

I thought this would have been a photo-finish...

Congrats to the mplayer dev.
