Since I tried QuickTime X (with Perian) and MplayerX I can no longer use other players; aesthetics really is important.  If a movie won't play in either (which is rare), I open VLC only after a lot of whining at whoever made/encoded the movie ;)

I do the same. Perian with QuickTime X is awesome. But I like VLC whenever the sound is too low and it needs some boost (whenever I'm using the speakers!)

For playing audio files on OSX I use Vox, it kinda reminds me of the Winamp days on the PC :-)

I use VLC. And would encourage you to reconsider. ;)

But, you could also try Adium.

i like the multitouch capabilities of mplayerx. pinch to zoom a movie is quite awesome if a movie is encoded with blank bars for example :)

VLC works best for me even without the use of Perian.

VLC is basically dead for me, because on x64 hardware it crashes, crashes, crashes.  

Now I'm not sure if I'm on x64 hardware, but it doesn't crash on my MBP (2009 model, if that helps to figure out if it's a x64 system).
I find VLC is quite good, it plays a lot of files, doesn't take much CPU or RAM and it's quite fast! The only problem I had at first, was the poor support of HD movies.. But that's fixed now!

I would say Vlc for file types
Quicktime for ease of use
and on the side MplayerX is cool

VLC hands down especially since version 2
And for what kind of media? Any in general? Music, video..?
For music I'd go with Vox

Personally I use VLC for IPTV and MPlayerX for anything else.

I use Plex because it's a great front row replacement and I can use my Apple remote with it and it has a handy library function with metadata scraping. Very handy for watching shared libraries off a NAS like I do. Plus it has plugins for IPTV "channels". I use an AppleTV'esque skin for it and it works great for me.
