Big Bash Of Video Players On Gnome 3 is a lazy comparative study of Linux based video players , specifically those which are available on GNOME 3.2.1 , openSUSE 12.1.openSUSE 12.1 offers a large variety of video players based on various platforms like gstreamer , phonon , xine , mplayer etc : Most of the video player options can be installed through the addition of OSS , Non OSS , Update and Packman repositories in YaST.
Comparison of video players
First I compare the video players based on their looks (like whether they integrate well with desktop theme) , their stability(how many times they crash) , easy of use (use of scroll in mouse to seek etc),whether they are easily configurable (setting default subtitle language etc).
