This is a very wide question... depends upon which software u choose.

I prefer mplayer..

It is best for me.
If you got mplayer then to play from cd..
Code: [Select]
mplayer -vcd 1To play a file
Code: [Select]
mplayer <filename.dat>
If u have mplayer gui then u can select file manually then play it.

download mplayer and also the codecs from its site. then compile it by enabling gui. u can play files from it by giving the command  
 
Code: [Select]
mplayer -ao(audio output) <the codec> -vo(video output) <the codec> -fs (full screen)  <filename>  

alternatively:
use the gui mplayer by giving command
Code: [Select]
gmplayer
