Linux Media Players

Amarok:
"the best one for me is amaroK. Based on Gstreamer, has support for various data bases, fast search, dynamic mode, radio."
"I agree, amaroK is great! I've been using gnome for years now, but amaroK might be a reason to make me switch back to KDE. Actually, it's not really amaroK itself, but more kparts, because it's no problem to run amaroK under gnome."
