MPEG Streamclip from Squared 5 is a video converter, player and editor for MPEG, Quicktime, DVD's and some online video channels. I like the ability to open a DVD at different sections rather than having to open the full video. This allows you to import a section and then put in and out points for the area you'd like to make a focus and save it for use in a course project. The export formats can convert from: MOV, DV, MP4, AVI, DIVX, MPG, MPEG, VOB (and more) to MOV

The VLC media player from VideoLAN is a cross-platform multimedia player that supports a wide variety of audio and video formats. It also allows you to save to other formats and will convert your files for web streaming. The player is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris and more. The other great feature about VLC is the number of codecs (compression algorithms) it supports to provide true cross-platform conversion and compatibility.
