    I like VLC media player. Easy to select video, audio, and subtitle tracks. Also supports mkv. But you will still need to get the codecs for wathever you are playing.

    EDIT: Oh it doesn't support Real. My bad( i dont do that much real, so i wouldn't know). MPlayer seems to support most video formats.

    I personally prefer MPlayer when I'm on Linux or Media Player Classic (comes with Real Alternative and Quicktime Alternative) when I'm on Windows.
    PHP Code:
    $hello file_get_contents('hello.txt'); echo $hello
    hello

    For video stuff I use Media Player Classic. When it comes to Audio I use Winamp, but that's for multiple reasons that have nothing to do with it's functionality.

    For video, i use VLC player, it basically plays any format. For audio, i prefer to use WMW, simple and already installed in your window.

    When I used Windows, I did VLC for video and Foobar2k for audio. I used to be a Winamp person, but Foobar could play everything and was a much smoother experience. But definitely VLC for video... MPlayer has always been funny for me on Windows and OSX.
