    Zoom player as I like it's mouse controls best.
    VLC for odd files and I like how it handles subtitles.
    TMT3 for Blu-ray.
    MPCHC sometimes.

    IMO, the perfect player doesn't exist, at least for my uses, but I don't mind using a few different players as I have a lot of different types of video files. And I have tried most of the software players available.

    I don't and never will use Windows Media Player for anything.

    Use VLC mostly. Next would be KMplayer. Use them for DVDs and BR to MKV rips.
    Also WinDVD ver 4 for DVDs.

    There was no mention of SMplayer but I use that as well.

    For BRs I use VMP only...... I installed the version of PowerDVD that came with my BR Drive. What junk!!!! Found it to be insufficient so I downloaded the upgrade and found that to be even worse. Un-installed that immediately and until VMP just didn't watch BRs on my computer. Only MKVs.

  5. I use MPCHC most of the time. Occasionally VLC. Boxee on my HTPC.

  6. I mostly watch video clips on the computer, I find PotPlayer fits my needs well. It works especially well with CoreAVC. I use it for DVD playback as well, but not often.

    SPlayer & VLC, in that order, for everything other than DVD. For DVD, Power DVD 7.

    VLC for MKVs (I like the subtitle support and tweakability, not to mention responsiveness and PQ);

    TMT for Blu-ray (has Blu-ray ISO support with full menus, which VLC lacks);

    WMC for OTA HD live and recordings, as well as the occasional analog cable feed (both piped in via a Hauppauge WinTV 885, though I'm about to drop the now almost useless cable);

    WMP for MPGs, AVIs and audio (I like the audio controls and have added WhiteCap visualizations that look awesome fullscreen on a 1080p HTPC 100" projector)

    I use VLC, but I have not upgraded to the newest latest version. I am using version 1.1.5.

    I should add that I use my PS3 for Bluray and XBMC for music as it uses Milkdrop for visualisation which looks nice on a 50" Plasma.

    Surprised it wasn't one of the options.

    What? No WinAmp? Ain't music considered media?

    WMP for windows media stuff (wmv, wma), MPCHC for all other files. DVDs and BRs with TMT5.
