    There are a few threads here and there regarding 'mplayer' or 'vlc'. I
    use the former, because I was introduced to it first, but hear great
    things about the latter as well. mplayer is available from the Packman
    repository (Google will help if you are not familiar with it) and VOC
    may be as well, but if not it is available online anyway (Google for
    'voc media player').

    Good luck.
