Had to vote VLC. I don't completely like all aspects of it and it has its annoyances at times but it works and allows remote control through a web page (there used to be an iPad app but it stopped working) which is nice even if it won't work with my Blackberry as the silly device wants a user name as well as a password to open the control page.

I went with MPlayer, because it has played every media file I have tried it with. I had an .avi clip that was played with MPlayer but not with VLC.

Totem. I was surprised to see how low it was voted last year, it's a great player. And on Debian it plays DVD's more reliably for me than VLC does.

VLC! I've tried all the rest, but VLC does it all.

As has been mentioned a few times now, we have no plans to add mplayer frontends.

MPlayer. I want to vote for xine though. But I can't, because I haven't gotten it working with the nouveau driver for the last several distro's I tried. Used Xine 1.1.18 in Ubuntu 8.04 for years and it was great.
