A simple mpeg2 codec will do the trick. For example, if you have a
software DVD player installed it will install an mpeg2 codec. I do
believe that there's an open source mpeg2 codec installed on my
windows box at home but I can't remember.

Personally, I simply use mplayer for windows. I even wiped wmp from my
pc... resource hog full of drm crap.
