If your in need of a inexpensive media player alternative.
How Does Free Sound? ;-)
VLC media player is a freeware program written by the VideoLAN project. This player supports all codecs and all file formats supported by FFmpeg which also includes the unique ability to play the video content of incomplete, unfinished, or damaged video downloads before the files have been fully downloaded.
It can also play m2t MPEG Transport Streams files while they are still being digitized from an HDV camera via a FireWire cable, making it possible to monitor the video as it is being played.
My personal favorite is the Synchronization Tool, which has the ability to synchronize the picture and audio of out of sync videos. :-)
