I'm using DSL right now on my notebook (2 GHz, 256 MB RAM) because my Wind*ws installation crashed (apparently due to a HD problem). So I copied all the data to a new disk and boot DSL from CD (I want to decide later on which OS to install on the new HD).

As I have quite a bit of video files (mostly WMV format) I need a video player capable of playing these. Which one would you recommend? I tried mplayer and xine so far, like xine more (from a look and feel point of view) but I'm not sure about it.

Looking forward to your comments.

Mplayer + codecpak  should let you play a lot of different codecs.

Also, you could try and apt-get install vlc  as an alternative.

any way to download/install an newer verion of vlc without compiling all needed libraries?
