  • Bomi. Based on mpv. http://bomi-player.github.io/

  • On desktop/laptop mpv 99% of the time, mplayer on occasion. On the Pi i reach for omxplayer or Kodi.

  • VLC, no matter where!

  • I’ve always used VLC, but I’m having small problems lately (it lags when seeking in mkv files, for instance).

    When this happens, I use mplayer. It’s old but rock solid (if you fancy a gui there’re a lot out there).

    Cheers!

    EDIT: I do not believe nobody uses totem (lol). I tried Parole (by the xfce guys) a long time ago… and it was useless (I hope this has changed, but I haven’t tried it since).

  • I was never fond of totem, but since the revamp to GNOME Videos, I tottaly dig the interface, plus it plays everything I have thrown to it! And it’s lightweight and GNOMe consistent.

  • Totem, aka Gnome videos. I use Gnome DE and I like my stuff consistent. Totem has been great lately!!! all video files I’ve thrown at it play from .wmv to .mkv

  • i totally agree with @karasu same thing happened to me.

  • Kodi for my Film & TV show library for everything else SMplayer.

  • I use GNOME MPlayer

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • smplayer most the time and VLC sometimes. i think they both work great but smplayer has a better options area. can really tweak the player very easily.

  • This post is deleted!
  • I use VLC all the time.

    Ethernet Extender

  • I’m surprised that mpv wasn’t made an option as it’s becoming increasingly popular. I use mpv with a vapoursynth script to get 60FPS motion smoothing from non-60FPS sources. While MPV doesn’t need a GUI front-end, some people do like to use the GTK-based GNOME MPV or the Qt-based Bomi. It’s much better than mplayer.

  • VLC all the way.

  • VLC never let me down ;)

  • @Wyn bomi +1 really a good player (better than vlc for me)

    @karasu I had the same problem with VLC and there is an easy fix for that
    In “Simple Preferences --> Video” set Output to “OpenGL GLX video output”

    The other problem I had with VLC was sound out of sync.
    To fix that problem go to "Simple Preferences --> Audio"
    Change Output module from “Automatic” to “ALSA audio output” and change Device to "PulseAudio Sound Server"
    Hope this helps

    I’m glad you mentioned Parole- I generally love XFCE, but sadly, Parole is still awful. I get a big green screen and audio, but that’s it; whereas VLC worked straight out of the box. Sadly not VLC is being chunky and slow too. Weird. :/
