    I am missing Rhythmbox.

  4. Chade says:

    Banshee? Songbird? Amarok? Totem? MPD?

  5. akedemo says:

    What about Real-media formats (rm, rmvb)?

    From my experience, Mplayer can play Real files quite well. (I use Mplayer from Medibuntu repo.)

  6. Tim says:

    What about totem? It’s standard installed under Ubuntu, and is pretty good to.

    Some little who can play mkv’s.
    VLC FTW!!!

  7. admin says:

    Updated with some more media players

  8. David says:

    Rhythmbox and Totem play also FLAC. If i remember right, Songbird also.

  9. Exaile would make a wonderful addition to this list. It plays WMA/AAC/MP3/OGG/FLAC, has a beautiful GUI, and offers an easy in-program tagging option.

    is there anything that supports avchd, or is working to?

  13. R says:

    Great list.

    I started one that has some of the same lines in UbuntuForums.org. This is more complete though.

    How about adding these to the list:

  14. moovida says:

    Moovida Media Center

  15. Abel R. says:

    VLC plays DVD iso’s as well.

  16. lidex says:

    How about Listen and Xine?

  17. Robin says:

    Interesting page but I have one problem. AVI’s are carriers to different codecs. It would be more useful to know the codecs supported. Also support for 32 bit is different for 64 bit.

    I have run into this at home. Videos that play in 32 bit won’t play in 64 bit due to codec support.

    Indeo codecs are one example.

  18. deLeewit says:

    Songbird plays .flac files too. I’m listening to one right now:-)

  19. Madz says:

    Dragon Player

  20. seraph says:

    Rhythmbox is able to play .ape files too

  21. AbdRahim says:

    Oneiric. Cannot set flac as preferred file in preferences –> music. Flac is not listed.
