Which software can play the majority of video formats?

I've used winamp forever now, and have been entirely happy with it over the years. However, with the advent of windows 7 (which now uses WDDM instead of direct draw) it seems winamp has finally become too old school to play videos.

"GOM Player
Apart from the often recommended VLC Media player, I strongly suggest you give GOM Player a look. It has the excellent codec support, just like VLC, but where it really shines is it's UI.

I have never seen a media player with a UI more functional and practical than GOM Player. Still, to this day, I miss it from my Mac."

"have you tried Kantaris ? it should be worth a try :-)

""Kantaris is a new media player based on code from Videolan client (VLC) and Bass audio library. Kantaris has a graphical user interface similar to that of Windows Media Player."""

UMPlayer can play just about anything that you throw at it. In addition, its web installer will download and install different versions based on your PC architecture in order to maximize all available accelerations.
