VLC Player: VLC player has been around for years now and it is well suited for all [size=100%][/size][size=inherit]Operating[/size][size=inherit]Systems[/size][size=100%][/color][/u][/size]. It is platform independent and can be used as a media converter. It supports a wide variety of audio and video formats like Wave, DivX, MPEG, MP3, OGG, AAC and many more. The player is highly stable. It is very easy to install and works brilliantly with Ubuntu. You can get the latest version of VLC Player for Ubuntu here.

I'm not using them that much at the moment, Winamp on my android phone has taken over... once I have it so I can play music from it over the wifi (waiting until I get into my new place and get my desktop setup) it will be bliss. VLC is no good for that sort of thing.. and not much use with last.fm - still its great for videos of all types.
