As with most things in the GNU/Linux world, there is no One Right
Answer(tm). Xine with avifile and windows codecs is great for watching
divx v. 3 videos and a some other formats (which is nice since I've got
nearly all of my B5 episodes burned onto CDR in that format), but its
support of DVDs is less impressive.
OTOH I have had great success with the videolan stuff (see freshmeat).
Despite the name (and the scope of the project, which includes a vlan
server I've never used), the vlan client (vlc I think it's called) is an
excellent DVD player which I've used to successfully watch a number of
movies, including The Matrix (region 1, css encrypted), Fight Club (region
2, css encrypted), and Cube (region 1, not encrypted) among others.
Subtitles look blocky but work, and everything else seems to work pretty
