Tough choice this. Although VLC is great, I tend to use Dragon Player whenever it plays the videos I want it to, which depending on how much effort I put into codecs is almost all.

some players are able to play directly to the framebuffer, or use libcaca or some such. It's really more of a video output decoder/driver question.

I just tried mpv playback on a non-GUI setup and it plays back perfectly (hwdec: vaapi).

Mplayer is good for the framebuffer by default, and easy to use in the framebuffer.

It's skinnable, so you can have different looks.

That said, I prefer watching my movies & videos "plain" - mostly fullscreen, or with nothing but a WM frame around them.

For me it has been VLC for many years. Runs also on that other platform in addition to Linux, and has never given be grief, so have not felt need to try others.
