Use VLC media Player..It can play possibly all formats...You can adjust brightness,Contrast of the video without editing it..It is fantastic..It is platform independent as well which means u can switch it in windows and linux..

you could just install "download helper" for firefox.
that will automatically convert it (if you want) to avi or mp4.
