How to play these files on Debian (Sarge) (WAS:Re: How can I play avi, wmv, mov videos on a standalone DVD player?)

I'd like to play them on Sarge. Just today I clicked on a .mov file and was asked if I wanted to use the default program (gmplayer). I said yes, but after it DL'd the file it complained that it could not find the proper codec (I don't remember, now, which codec it was looking for). Is there some place to get the proper codecs to make these work. If so, where is it? If not, why give a default player that can not actually play the file?
