I think the two differs in their intention. Gxine is a video player
which can (due to libxine) play music. Xfmedia is a music player which
can (due to libxine) play videos.

I don't know well gxine so I can't tell, but imho it depends on what you
want to provide. (music with video or video with music ?)
