VLC media player covers almost every Codec that you can play with the media player. You can consider K-lite media codec to install on Windows OS. This way you can use any media player of your choice and you'd be able to play the files. The media player that comes with K-lite media codec is called K-lite classic windows media player. This player is another good media player that you can use if you don't like VLC. But I personally think VLC and K-lite media player are more than enough for your media needs. Other media players like Musicmatch Jukebox, Winamp, PowerDVD and flowplayer are good too. But VLC just works good for me.
