does anyone know good any media players for ubuntu?

hello to all,

i have been a windows user for years because the programs i use (i've learned to use) dont exist for linux o.s. but i have decided to get away from windows (as much as i can at least). to be honest i am very impressed with linux (ubuntu).

i was wondering if anyone could tell me a good media player for ibuntu. i have tried vlc player and mplayer but the video is jaggy. i tried the same file on windows gom player and the video worked just fine. as you understand i had to watch the movie through windows.

if anyone knows any media player for ubuntu i would be very grateful.

thank you in advance

Of course.
For music playing you can try out amarok, audacious or banshee. For playing movies try out xine (install package xine-ui) or any player based on it.
You can also check this site out for more linux applications and descriptions for them.
