Many users prefer to use third-party media players on Ubuntu rather than using the default pre-installed Rhythmbox. This tendency is due to the fact that there are many media players in the web that suit the various needs of users such as the supporting of different audio and video formats, offering numerous customization options, good-looking user interface, and so on.

The good thing in the Linux world is that users are always offered alternatives to choose from rather than sticking to one type of software. This applies on media players which are available numerously either in CLI or GUI mode for Linux-based systems. So, if you are one of those users who are getting bored with the current Rhythmbox media player, you can find below a list of 16 best media players that you can install on Ubuntu 12.04 or older, and any other Ubuntu-based system like Linux Mint 13 or older.
