Need some multimedia app recommendations.

Looking for reccomendations for each of the following which you think is the all around best.

  1. *Music player - I really can't say I've tried one superb player, needs to be able to sync easily (or as easily as possible) with an iPod (all iDevices really), with preferably a nice, clean interface
  2. Video editor - doesn't have to be super advanced, short learning curve/easy interface
  3. Screen recorder
* I have tried all the ones to be found in the software center, and some from outside: Clementine, Banshee, rhythmbox etc. so think outside the box
Did I miss anything? Feel free to add some personal must haves.
BTW I run Ubuntu 13.04, it's siblings ie Lubuntu, and derivatives so terminal installation commands are appreciated.
Big time THANKS in advance, especially if your the one to reccomend music player that satisfys me.
