There are a lot of media players out there. One of the better ones is VLC. It was initially released in 2001 by a group at Ecole Centrale Paris. Today, it is an open source project and anyone can contribute to it around the world. It is free to download and will play various formats. It is amazing how many different audio and video codecs this application can handle. This is definitely a good media player for watching videos of the Internet. It works on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. It is licensed under the GNU general public license.
