Thumbs up

Went with Totem for this. Nice frontend for xine and able to handle most of the clips I throw at it. VLC gets honorable mention but for some reason has a difficult time playing some quicktime & wmv clips I have.

I use mplayer as a backend in the audio server for internet streams and as a .ogm player for all this dual-audio anime... and every mov, avi, asf, etc plus DVDs. I'm a command-line freak nowadays. Which is good because mencoder slices through crap files and outperforms everything for tv grabbing that I've tried... 'mencoder tv://' is so much better than xawtv's 'streamer' app, and writes mpeg4 among others!
