I love VNC for its all-in-one capability, though it's not without flaws.
Being a network-oriented player, it recognize only streams of videos, and
don't know a bit about frames, this makes rewind and fast forward a bit
clumsy (not a concern for many people, but I like to go back and forward
when playing movies)
