Which do you prefer as a dvd player?

Just curious. I voted for ogle, because it worked and installed easily. I was able to configure things like frame dropping through the gui with no problems.

I picked mplayer just because I haven't tried anything else. I'll have to give xine a try.

I've used ogle ---> not configurable enough but works out of the box so to speak
xine ---> good but too configurable
mplayer ---> good but no dvd menu support
videolan client ---> I've been trying this one out. Cross between ogle and mplayer...
