Clementine and VLC.
Audacious for music. VLC for video.
I would stick to just VLC but, for some reason, it has random audio glitches when I try to play music through it. However, Audacious works flawlessly. Might switch to GMplayer altogether since VLC was pissing me off with instability and bizarre glitches lately.
I don't like to, but I use rhythmbox for music, simply because my iPod still hasn't given up the ghost, and it's one of the few music players which interfaces well with it. I've tried to sync my iPod using gnupod, which would leave me free to see if there is a music player in existence which I actually like, but I've never managed it.
Ah well, maybe it's time for another attempt...
Exaile for music, works well streaming internet radio and can record using Streamripper which is handy sometimes. I have mixed emotions about linux DVD players, SMplayer usually has better quality, but is glitchy with menus, been using VLC which shipped with this distro and has been working pretty well.
Haven't tried Clementine lately but liked the early versions, haven't tried Deadbeef either lately, I like it but was waiting for some features to get added. I was an old-school Foobar2000 lover back in my windoze daze...still miss it, nothing has been as good.
I use VLC for video and qmmp for audio.
For the old school types, qmmp reminds me a lot of xmms before they screwed it up. It's fast, light, does exactly what I want it to do and even uses my favorite winamp 2 skin the same way the old xmms did.
we see things not as they are, but as we are.

I usually run the mpd server and control it via MPDroid from the phone. I sometimes turn on XNoise, some new thing, pretty cool.
I first encountered MoCP when CrunchBang was still based on Ubuntu 9.04, and it remains my preferred terminal-based music player. For the GUI, I currently prefer Audacious due to the built-in spectrum analyzer in its GTK interface, though I've been experimenting with Cubic lately as well for its enhanced geek cred.
EDIT: I've tried Gmusicbrowser because I've read that it's one of the best music players for working with large playlists. Thing is, a couple of my playlists are so big (several weeks' worth of music) that it takes Gmusicbrowser several minutes to load, so I typically forgo static playlists and program-as-I-go - start a song, browse through directories for the next, add to playlist, rinse & repeat. Totally old-school.

I'm a moderator here. How are we doing? Feedback is encouraged.
Clementine/Audio .. VLC/Video
Both for the same reasons, they play it all OOTB. I could never say That for Mplayer
OHCG #!, Jessie,, Siduction-13.1, Slackware 14, Bridge,, Sabayon 13.4,
mpd + ncmpcpp for music
mplayer for video
GCS/MU d? s:s++ a-- C++++>$ UL/B++++>$ P++ L+++ E--- W++ N++ o K- w-- O- M- VMS-- PS+++ PE++ Y++ GNUGP(No PGP)++ t+ 5 X R++ tv- b++ DI+++ D+ G++ e>++(+++) h++(h*) !r y*
do keep mplayer ready, just in case of videolan slacking, but that rarely happens..
xine...I dont know why vlc so slow/lags on my machine, will tinker when I have enough time
VLC - for movies
Audio - I haven't listened to music in sometime via a cd or from my hard drive. I've been using youtube and grooveshark for my music needs.
mocp for audio (fast and clean), vlc for video (reliable).
Vlc for video, sometimes audio. Using it for years, more a habit to use vlc it than anything else available and vlc plays everything.
DeaDBEEF for audio, just recently. No special reason..but is works.
Audacious for music, hangover from Windows days with Winamp, but prefer a player that refers to files as opposed to tags and one that doesn't try to create its own database of music.
mplayer for video and dvb-t, just does the job when nothing else will, highly configurable and programmable
VLC for when I need to watch or listen to something quick
For creation: ffmpeg, audacity and openshot
