    Just wondering.

    I typically use QuickTime so it's easy to return to.

    I always use QuickTime. I don't put any of my movies into iTunes.

    VLC.

    I hate quicktime. Slow to scan forwards and back.

    If i had a desktop and a good desk i might watch movies there. But i use my xbox 360 with connect 360 connected to a G4 tower to watch my movies and tv shows.

    I export from EyeTV to iTunes, then share the library. That's pretty much it.

    DVD player for most movies, iTunes for any purchased/rented movies, and iTunes for most TV shows.

    Basically, either DVD player or iTunes, depending on whether I have a disc, or whether it's an iTunes purchased/rented thing.

    Front Row if they're in my iTunes library, Quicktime if they're downloaded DivX's. But most of the time it's Front Row.

    On XP Quicktime doesn't deactivate XP's screensaver or sleep timer so I use VLC there. I'd use VLC in OSX too but I like remote support and it's a bit fugly.

    I usually stream my stuff via PS3 to my tv, but now that i've switched televisions and there is no headphone jack i've lost my surround sound!

    Frontrow for iTunes purchased shows/movies.
    VLC Player/Plex for MKV movies.
