Used mplayer extensively in the past when I compiled it into Fedora 4 but now VLC does everything I need for me in Mint.

Stop complaining about subtiltles, guys. I totally figured it out man. You just have to change your subtitles name to exactly as same as your videos name. Like your videos names is Pirates of Torrent Valley DVDrip.avi and your subtitles text names shoud be Pirates of Torrent Valley, and gnome mplayer should load subtitles just fine. Totally figured it out, man. Beautiful

It is supporting many extensions. I like it. It also has the function of drag and drop directly from the file explorer to the play list.

Für mich immer noch der Klassiker bei den Videobetrachtern, wenn ich es auch hasse, das er, nicht immer unbedingt den richtigen Audiotreiber oder den richtigen Videotreiber erwischt, wenn man mal die grafische Oberfläche verläßt, also z.B. von Gnome nach Xfce rüberschwenkt. Kann man mit diesem Manko leben, hat man einen hervorragenden Abspieler, der mit jeder Art von Film klarkommt, sofern die Codecs installiert wurden.
