Okay, so being a complete and utter media freak I'm constantly on the hunt for the best media player around. Having used countless media players for linux and windows I believe I came across the best media player to date.
Its called XBMC (xbox media center)www.xbmc.org and it completely whips almost every other media applications ass. Currently using it on Ubuntu, but there is a windows, mac and yes xbox version out too. I could go on for days on how awesome it is, but will advise any one interested in setting up a media server, or just looking for whack media application to take a look, or give it a try. interested in your feedback on this
