DivBZero (13) Can't answer this poll because I use VLC which is really good for streaming collections around the place.

It has much better support of codecs and good control of video parameters. This mean you can correct for dark and over saturated videos. For example f*machines tends towards the dark end and 1by-day always over saturate the colours so that skin takes on an almost tangerine tone.

VLC is also good at transcoding, so you can have a PC with very high resolution and a set top box connected to plasma screen. The set top box may only understand DIVX, yet you'd like a WMV movie played on it.

apoctom (145) I picked Windows Media Player since I use that as a backup to Media Player Classic. I like VLC, but MPC is just easier for me to use.

troglodite (69) I use Windows Media Player. I've tried VLC and MPC, but the feature that has continued to win me over is that I can jump to any point in the movie by clicking exactly where I want to jump to on the progress-bar thingy. If I try to jump to say 2/3 through the movie in WMP, I just click once right at that spot on the bar. If try that in MPC or VLC player, it jumps ahead in the movie some unknown amount. I can drag the progress bar if I want, but I wanna click it and have it go where I clicked, not some random spot that it chooses! Seems simple to me, but no other player seems to do that like WMP. Yes I'm picky :)

kkman112 (12) Currently use a combination. Totem for most. VLC for any others that do not play in Totem, and MPlayer for any that do not play either wise. Flash will not be much of a contender until they release the 'Moviestar' update and has good adoption.

Denner (235) I use Crystal Player for downloaded movies - it's easy to use and with a fine quality. Don't use online streaming.
WMP is allright for backup.

SnowDude (214) I like WMV the best, but have been impressed with a recent experience using the flash player for streaming.
