I've finally decided to run FreeBSD as my primary workstation environment. Previously I have only used it as a server platform. I've managed to replace most of the desktop utilities I need, but I need a good replacement for Windows Media Player.
I'm looking for opinions here.... I'd like an application that works well as a stream player (i.e. supports playing mp3/mpeg/avi/etc from a web site via mozilla) as well as playing dvd/vcd/divx/dvd/etc from the localhost. I'm also looking for an application that has the concept of easy to install/manage codecs. I'd like to avoid having to --enable via configure and re-compile each time I need a new codec. The GUI need not be pretty, but should not be kludgy, and adware would be a big minus. If the application supported network updates of both the player and the codec w/o adware, I'd even be willing to throw some money towards a yearly subscription.
