Ubuntu Media Players OverView

1. Beep Media Player: MP, or Beep Media Player, is a compact media player that was originally forked from XMMS with the goal of porting XMMS to GTK2 and make use of more modern desktop standards. The original XMMS is based on GTK 1.2, which is now deprecated for roughly 4 years, and was deprecated at the time of the fork for approximately 2 years. This, and the fact that the developers were developing XMMS under a mostly cathedral-style model led M. Derezynski to fork BMP from XMMS.

Don't Forget Amarok

Though it isn't natively for GNOME/GTK+, Amarok is a wonderful media player. It's worth installing kdelibs, IMO.
