Posted:What I do is download every media player I can think of lol, I have the latest windows media, Div X, real player, and quicktime. One of these tends to have codecs avaliable and real player will download speacial softwear when you need it if its avaliable.

Posted:UCOF has the right idea, with that pack you can play anything with windows media player, it also includes a player that plays them all also.

Real Player has got an extremely dodgy history- maybe they've cleaned their act up, but, personally, i was so disgusted by their actions in the past, that I ceased to consider using their player for anything; I'd advise doing some research before downloading anything from Real.
