It seems that mpv is getting all the love, and I'm not really surprised. It's pretty much the only video player I'm willing to compile from source (since compiling is always a pain in the rear).

VLC is my second choice, and often my first when it comes to DVDs.

Since Smplayer isn't there, I voted VLC. Use Kaffeine from time-to-time too.

I use other players (xine, mplayer, vlc) sometimes but my primary one is QMPlay2.

For years I voted VLC but lately it crashed or won't run on every PC with every distro I tried. Not sure my other vote (Dragon Player) really is the best one or not, it just works.

Having said I prefer SMPlayer, and MPV second, I will admit to also using VLC (on occasion).....and even good old GXine! GXine is nicely lightweight, and for what I use 'em for, they'll all do what I want. It's more a case of what I feel like using on the day in question, TBH.....

I have to agree that VLC seems to handle physical media (i.e., CDs/DVDs) better than most others.


Mike.

Here are the plans for VLC 4.0: https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/media_vlc/
Quote:
A presentation about the next version of VLC, called 4.0, codename Otto Chriek.

This is a continuation of the talk from last year, to explain exactly what was indeed implemented in the VLC core codebase.

It notably speak about the results of the VLC 3.0 release, and speak about the following changes for 4.0: - the media library, - the core clock changes, - the new playlist, - the VR support, - and the new interface for Linux and Windows, using Qt5/qml.
