Default Everything Player?

Hello,

I've been wondering this for years...

Is there anything out there that can play almost any audio/video format? iTunes supports nearly all audio, but next to no video... is there something out there that can play them all?

Thanks,

Donald J

VLC is very nice. I might not would use it if it were like a media center, but for a pc...I love it.

the k-lite pack with media player classic. download version 2.27 and install it. it will let you play movies on your computer and tv at the same time. if you need the newer and latest codecs, download the latest version. during installation, it will ask you if you want it to uninstall the previous version. pick no or you won't be able to watch on both of them at the same time.

vlc can't do that
