It's really very much like it is with distros. You have to try them and then decide for yourself which one is best, in your opinion. That said, VLC is said to play just about anything. Of course, to do that you must have the correct underlying files in place.oz

mplayer is another media player which can be built to support most formats as well. It is a very versatile player and you can also use netscape/firefox/seamonkey plugins to support embeded video.Linux since: 2001

Windows Media player was one of the programs I had trouble replacing when I moved over from Windows.
At the moment I'm using Banshee for music as it has a good library for my albums as well as useful information. Apparently it's quite similar for iTunes.
I'm waiting for Songbird to get an official release. From what I've seen it's going to be a great media player.
For videos I use mplayer with the smplayer front end. It's very good and I've not come across a file it can't handle yet
As ozar said, just give a few a try - you will eventually find one that you likeLinux User #453176

I get by fine using Xine based players (Kaffeine with the appropriate codecs). That said, VLC seems to handle a lot more file types that the other players and the only reason why I don't use it on Linux is because I don't like the interface.
