    xine, mplayer (i really like mplayer), helix.
    why don't you continue using kaffeine with gnome? all you'd lose is the kde integration

    kaffeine is just a KDE frontend for xine, so if you install xince it's got the same guts as kaffeine;
    Or you can just use kaffeine in GNOME as lakerdonsld said

    well i have the command line version installed, but when i try to install the gui through atp-get
    i get this error

    Code:
    [root@localhost root]# apt-get install mplayer-gui
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package mplayer-gui
    im wondering if there is another name for it instead of mplayer-gui that apt-get might recognise, but "mplayer-gui" is exactly the name that the mplayer web site has given it

    this is from http://luna.cs.ccsu.edu/dominik/mplayer/apt.html
    If you have installed APT and set it up to use the Grey Sector Repository, all you need to do is (as root):

    apt-get install mplayer

    or

    apt-get install mplayer-gui

    depending on which version you wish to install. You can install both, of course. APT will do the rest for you.
    any ideas?

    sorry for double post

    now im getting new errors after i told my apt-get to look at the Grey Sector Repository

    Code:
    [root@localhost gpg]# apt-get install mplayer-gui
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    Package mplayer-gui has no available version, but exists in the database.
    This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
    never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
    of sources.list
    E: Package mplayer-gui has no installation candidate
