Play almost every media file with VLC

I'm sure you've experienced this before.

Your good friend or family member has sent you a video they took w/ their digital camera as an attachment, but when you tried to open it, you couldn't play it because your default Windows Media Player didn't recognize it.

Or maybe you came across a funny video on the 'net that wasn't a streaming video like youtube, so you had to download it, but when you tried to open, Windows media player didn't recognize that either.

I used to hate that.

But now I just use the free VLC media player. It plays virtually every kind of media type thrown your way: avi, mov, mpeg, mp3, ogg, and etc.

You don't need to know all those suffixes. Just open it with VLC and you'll be fine.
