    • Reliably supports more newer encodes + minimal InsaneFromEarthJul 2016 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I had some rare cases were VLC and mplayer couldn't play a video correctly. MPV did it for me on Linux and Windows. Also like the GUI (or the lack of it) a lot more. vektorwegDec 2016 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There was a time when VLC was justifiably considered the best open-source cross-platform movie player. MPV has closed the gap substantially and is likely to work out-of-the-box in a minority of cases where VLC gets stuck. Excellent software. Open souce (trustworthy) and free, of course.

  • Potamus

    Potamus is a lightweight GTK-based audio player with a simple interface and an emphasis on high audio quality. It was written as a reaction to players like Rhythmbox that use a complex database to keep track of a music collection. My preference instead is to make use of the filesystem for sorting music, so Potamus knows nothing about the files it's playing other than their names, and tries to make it as easy as possible to use your file manager to locate and play music.
