I use mplayer too, but (as far as I know) the list of supported
codecs hasn't changed in several years. That's mostly not a
problem, but there are certain file types (.wmvs I have been told
are handled correctly by Windows Media Player 10/11; this may be a
DRM thing) that completely do not play.

Mplayer has a gui (gmplayer) but it's pretty minimal.
