    Winamp and normal WMP are Windows Executables. OSX is a Unix based OS and will not run .EXE Windows applications. In place of WMP you grab Flip4Mac. Install it and quicktime will play Windows Media content. Also there is the Perian plugin that allows Quicktime to play most videos out there.

    There is also VLC that plays pretty much anything and MPlayer for OSX.
