Playing Videos

VLC is a great program for playing videos. Instead of having several programs for playing different types of videos, (Quicktime, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, etc.) you can use this one free program to play nearly any type of video file.
Download VLC Player

Once you have VLC installed, just right click the video file you would like to open and select "Open with VLC"
