    Despite all the bad press (and if you're not too concerned about privacy) Windows Media Player isn't all that bad, plus it will download a lot of needed codecs automatically from the Internet, if you're connected.

    For viewing AVIs you'll probably need the DivX codecs - just do a search on Google for "DivX" and you'll find tons of sites to download this free.

    My personal favourite is the Zoom Player from Imatrix. Low RAM overheads and works like a charm.
