VLC is always my go-to regardless of whatever platform I'm on. I'll have to check out mpv.

VLC -- plays anythoing I throw at it and can be controlled from another machine via a web interface.

mpv. I keep vlc around just in case I get some oddball file that won't open in anything else, but generally I use smplayer frontend for mpv for everything, with Kodi for watching movies.

SMPlayer?

Probably not there because it's not truly a video application, just a gui frontend for mplayer/mplayer2/mpv.

Doesn't Kaffeine fall into that category?

Not sure, I just looked at the wikipedia article for kaffeine and it reads as if kaffeine is actually it's own player that's able to use other engines for proprietary formats that it doesn't support. But not sure, haven't really used it in a very long time.

Have been using VLC happily until recently, but mplayer is winning me over quickly.

OpenSUSE really messed up VLC with Leap, so i've switched to SMPlayer. Seems to do the job, so i voted for Mplayer this year.

PrinceCruise 01-04-2016 10:23 AM

VLC okay!

Regards.

I still use mplayer (using smplayer as a frontend), mainly because I'm familiar with it, and I don't even need to worry about building it anymore since it is now included with Slackware, but I really should probably start looking into mpv...

Those of you using smplayer with mpv, have you noticed any issues? Last I checked, the dev stated that mpv support was still early and things might be broken.
