I've recently downloaded several media files. Some of them will not play. I found out I needed DIVX to play some of them. I got that and some play fine.

Now I've got some others that will not play and I have no idea why. I'm thinking there must be ANOTHER format out there and I need some software to play it. The file contans this statment "[SVCD]-Disk-1.MPG" The file is a full lingth movie 825MB large.

When I click on the file it opens Windows media player (version 9.00) then it says "Contacting". Lastly, a box pops up saying something is wrong with the file type.

Here is the question:
Is there a multi-media player out there that will play everything? Quicktime, MPGs, ie, almost everying?
If not, is there something I need to play the file I listed above?
