for sure codecs are the way forward, try k-lite codec pack it worked for me, just type it into google and you'll find it.

I think you need QuickTime player to play .mov files. And not sure about the ASX, but windows media player classic and vlc should both the able to play the rest of the formats fine. (might needs codecs though, as already suggested k-lite codec pack is exellent, and it comes with media player classic)

you could give VLC Media Player a try. It should play most of those but I'm not sure.

Yeah, VLC plays anything! Even .dat, .bin and .iso files!

If VLC doesn't play it, nothing will.
