    VLC works, but you can also download Perian. It's a plug in that allows you to play many more file types with quicktime (and other video related aspects on the mac)

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I second the VLC suggestion.
    Perian is OK, but in my opinion it is slow and buggy.
