Mplayer - Play avi/divx files on windows

So, as I was helping out someone play avi files on windows, they wanted an easy to use player with a neat installer. As always, since Mplayer remains my first choice for a media player, I suggested that to them. They wanted something more automated, which would not have them do things like copying codecs and all that jazz.

After poking around in google, I stumbled upon a neat version of Mplayer for Windows here. Download the full version and you have a player that can play anything that is thrown at it.

Anything else, including Windows Media Player, is a waste of time.

    one of the reasons I prefer mplayer over vlc is that vlc absolutely sucks when it comes to playing corrupted/scratched dvd's; something that we encounter most of the time !
