VLC is the only one.You donīt have to worry about codecs it works after download.I thought everybody used a TV with a big,clumsy,noicy,dvd player that looks like some cd retro shit from the eighties or early nineties.It is great that people starts to understand that tv-companies distroys the movies with a lot of comercial breaks all the time.

Xine! Looks like I'm alone on this one. It has a glitch that it keeps setting my volume to zero, but I still use it.

VLC has multi operating system support, is easy to use but works brilliantly.

If Totem is in the list, so should Parole. It'd be nice to have smplayer and gnome-mplayer as separate entries, too.
