Video players

Does anyone have a suggestion as to a good video for linux. I am looking for something that is easy to install and configure.
Any info would be appreciated

your choices are pretty much xine or mplayer

I prefer xine but many choose mplayer

Xine would probably be pretty good if I had a bit more horsepower on my machine.

As it is, I use mplayer and compile it from source, its got tons of options that help performance which makes it more useable for me on my machine (although I'll say that xine has a better UI)
