first you might want some graphical acceleration enabled(driver). you are most likely using vesa by default. if you card is ATI or nVidia, go to their site and download the drivers from there. they have the instructions there as well.
to play most formats get VLC. you might have to download additional codecs. it worked for me by default. there are other programs but VLC generally plays all formats.(including DVD, DivX, xvid)
