Do a Google search on media player and you will find several options. Real One, Quick Time, to mention just a couple.

Real-One is a garbage player and I would stay away from it. They have been notorious in the past for putting spyware and advertising bots on peoples computers and the program installation puts shortcuts/quick launch for all kinds of useless crap on your computer. Supposedly there is a cleaner version of Real-Player somewhere but I'm not interested in looking for it b-cuz WinAmp is the best.

Try VideoLAN, it's a basic freeware media player, not all the visualizations and color like Windows Media Player has, but it can run mpeg2 files and many other media file types. It works well and is easy to use. http://www.videolan.org/

I use Zoom Player Standard.

100% free. Always loads fast. All file types.
Really extensive options (you'll spend some time there...)

Lizard, Yea you read it right. I Like my old Commodore, still use it for playing some old games.
Can you remember when PC World and PC Magazine use to put machine language code in their magizines for us Commodore users? All you needed was a machine language editor/compiler. Just type the code into the editor line per line and you had a new game or app. Some of the code for the better games like "Black Hole" were up to 4 pages long and took a few hours to type in. That was the good ol days.
