I do if I'm not kubuntu (because kaffeine rocks). I used VLC for a
long time on Windows, Ubuntu and Kubuntu and I have found that its
just not viable to keep installing many players.  I'm in favor of
using Totem for many reasons. As a member of the Mozilla Team, I will
say that Totem and Firefox integration have made considerable growth
in the last few releases. Secondly, the dependencies are already in
Xubuntu which would make it real easy to place Totem in (and not
inflate Xubuntu). Third, Totem is just better polished and more
developed than Gxine.  I say we go with Totem and libxine as the
backend but I wouldn't be suprised to see gstreamer as the backend.
