"Almost Perfect Player"
Plays everything. Lightweight. More configuration options than you can ever possibly need, but works out of the box.
Not the prettiest player when nothing's loaded, but then, that's not for long anyway. No library either, but then it's not advocating one.
I can't see myself ever switching. XP, Win7, Ubuntu - all run VLC.
