You may already have MPlayer on your install CDs (I can't remember) - but if I were you, I would go and download it and the Win32 codecs that can also be found it their site. Honestly the most comprehensive media player for *nix systems.

Yes like Thymox said I too suggest MPlayer. You can find it on www.mplayerhq.hu Download the main program plus the Win32 codecs and for the future if you would like to play Quicktime and other formats you should download all the codecs from the website. Check out MPlayers README. It explains how to install the codecs and the program. (Also how to install the Skin and Fonts for mplayer) Good luck!
