I use mplayer (on linux though).  It works great; the guy even has a file on his website that has like 35+ codecs that you can 
download, in case you dont have a windoze box.  Mplayer has been working 
really well for me, there isn't a movie that I can't watch (except 
quicktime).  Unfortunately I couldn't try it on my NetBSD box yet, because it 
doesn't have X.  Someone should try or possibly make a package for it...
