Still playing your DVD’s with Windows Media Player well here I want to suggest 2 alternatives for playing for audio and video files. Firstly you can use VLC Media Player which can play all the media files. VLC media player comes with built in plug-in for all media files so there is no frustration of finding plug in for every other extension.
Second player is GOM Media Player. As you can see it’s quite less in size and most amazing feature of GOM player is GOM player plays media file even if it’s broken. Like if you want to check quality of a movie, just download some part of the movie and GOM player will play the downloaded movie.
Windows Media Player: 24mb
VLC Player: 20mb
GOM Player: 7mb
