One of the most frustrating elements of the ongoing Media Player v RealPlayer v QuickTime battle is that they all attempt to override each others media format. If you have an MPG video file on your computer, install RealPlayer and it will attempt to open it, whereas you might prefer QuickTime. Worse still, each media player only supports a limited number of video codecs, so what might play on one operating system and in one particular media player, may not play on another.
VLC Media Player 0.8.6c is a cross-platform multi-format video player that will enable you to play the same track on a Windows, Mac or Linux computer. You only need to install the one media player and you'll find tht it can handle most video formats that you throw at it (apart from Microsoft coded WMV which requires special authorisation that only Windows Media Player can support).
