    I use Flip4Mac. It does what it's supposed to. You can view and then save those windows files as QuickTime movies. Works great.

    Ive used VLC under Linux for several years, never had a problem with it. I have it on my Windows partition also, but rarely use it, simply because I rarely use Windows. I think you're right, it plays every format on the planet.

    ditto on the above vlc and flip4mac. fwiw, I think vlc has numerous encoders supports that you can add on.

    VLC is good in that it "just works." It has a nicer UI on the mac than linux or Windows too.
