With mplayer.
You can get it here (well, if don't already have it installed):

'xmms' works too, but the bottom line is you'll need copies of the windows codecs.

There is a wincodecs archive file on the 'Net and it's legal for you to use as long as
you already have a legal copy of Windows. Alternatively, you can get the list of
codec files from the wincodecs archive and copy them from your own Windows installation.

The codecs need to be installed in /usr/lib/win32
or /usr/local/lib/win32
so that 'mplayer' or 'xmms' can find them.
