    I was going to say Helix, but you don't like that either?
    Some people like Xine, but I hate it. Although I don't mind its derivatives like Kaffeine.

    I've used Mplayer and Xine, and found Xine more comfortable.

    But that's of course a personal choice

    Are you talking about movie player, or audio player?

    I use amaroK for mp3s, and mplayer/kaffeine for video.

    And if you don't like Xine either, you can try to get Totem working with Gstreamer, though last I heard that's not very mature yet.
