Window resoze breaks aspect ratio and many formats are not played even
with the xubuntu-restricted-extras installed. Totem used to be a fine
video player but it suffers some of the same issues of Parole. The
only video player that never, and i mean NEVER failed to reproduce a
single video is VLC, but VLC GUI is not as polished as GTK ones of
Totem or Parole. Maybe a retouched version of VLC should replace all
video players around, Parole in this case.
That's why I use SMPlayer. Works flawlessly for video. Still prefer VLC
for music.

Hi, and please don't top-post, it makes following the thread that much more
difficult. :)

vlc also depends on Qt-libraries, so not all flavors/derivatives would include
it anyway.
