    UMPlayer is really cool!

    I like it so much I've made it my default Multimedia player.

    http://www.umplayer.com/


    EDIT:
    I changed my mind. I've uninstalled UMPlayer and won't use it any longer. I've learned every time I start UMPlayer it makes connections to the internet. I hate it when applications make unneeded and unexplained connections to the internet. Especially every single time I start the app.

    VLC is much preferable.

    UMPlayer gets a net connection so it can retrieve video lists from youtube. No big deal. Firefox connects to the internet every time, but no one minds that.

    Anyway, I think UMPlayer is really good.

    using MS Windows with an application firewall. Linux makes it hard to find this stuff out because it has no application firewalls. Hopefully this will change. See here: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/26902/

    When I'm playing a video off my hard drive, I don't want the player making internet connections. Numerous reasons exist, for example maybe I have broadband usage caps. VLC doesn't do this behavior. I'll stick with VLC, more trust worthy.

    that's too bad because I came to this thread just to mention how much I'm loving UMplayer. I've been a tried and true VLC guy except for just a few complaints,like settings not remaining from track to track, etc. I recently had a bad audio issue with vlc playing downloaded music videos on ubuntu 10.10. I tried every option and nothing. I installed umplayer a while ago and just decided to try playing the music video downloads with it. PERFECTION! and the video quality and eq are great.

    Uninstalled VLC last night. And umplayer plays all my DVDs which was my main love of vlc so i'm not even missing it.

    If you use Umplayer to play youtube videos how do you choose the resolution (360p, 480p etc)?

    Thanks.

    One problem, it plays video's I already have, but won't play any that I download.
