I like the full version of k-lite codec pack for this. It comes with Windows Media Player classic, which is light weight, and plays everything I've ever thrown at it.

If VLC doesn't work for you, try Miro. Plays just about anything you throw at it. I don't see why VLC would crash for you though--are you using the latest version? It has never crashed on me before.

I always liked that popular korean one - GOM Player. Much better than VLC I thought. But now I'm on mac, so stuck with VLC :(
