Free video/audio player

Have a look at
http://www.kantaris.org/
Kantaris is an all new media player based on code from Videolan client (VLC) and Bass audio library. Kantaris has a graphical user interface similar to that of Windows Media Player.
Version 0.4.2 works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista.
Just tried it and its very good and well worth a look and best of all its FREE

You will also need to download (or already have installed)  Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0  Wink

Re: Free video/audio player

Have downloaded this and .NET framework and both went on seamlessly... so much so, I forgot I had started them... Have been listening and watching videos for past hour, and the sound quality through my external speakers is really good. 
Think I will use it more than WMP for my video music.... Smiley

Re: Free video/audio player

The link you gave Pierre, gives a "evaluation" program    which means only 3 minutes of each video will be converted..... if a video is 4 mins 25 secs you loose the rest of it, unless you purchase the full version... Cry
My version "Quick Media Coverter" will convert .VLC files etc over 9 minutes IN FULL for FREE..... Cheesy
