I use VLC in preference to Windows Media player and iTunes/QuickTime.

US-CERT: VideoLAN Releases VLC Media Player 1.1.8
added March 25, 2011 at 07:43 am

VideoLAN has released VLC Media Player 1.1.8 to address two vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities are due to the improper handling of .AMV and .NSV files. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the release notes for VLC Media Player 1.1.8 and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risks.
