Music/Video player

Is there a program that can run about every format of videos and music (mp3, wav, wmv, wma, etc) (mov, avi, wmv, etc) XMMS is good but cant play wma files. Xine is good but is kinda, not good. I think Helix is good.

This has been discussed to no end on LQ. And again I will say "Mplayer" for me is the most versitile. Some would disagree but It has come through where other's have failed miserably.

My 2.5 cents

Any media player such as xine, mplayer and videolan will work as long as you have the latest win32 codecs.
