Alternative media players for an Acer laptop

\015 Hello.\015\012\015\012I bought a new Acer Aspire laptop recently, only to find that there was no sound when I tried to play DVDs. Took computer back to PC World, who changed the default setting from Windows Media Player to Acer Arcade deluxe. Sound works fine now but the window can only be minimised so much and doesn't leave enough room on the screen for doing other stuff at the same time. Also, there is no on-screen indication of how far into the DVD I am or how much time there is left on the DVD, which I find annoying. Does anyone know if there is another media player that will do both of these things and that I can download onto an Acer computer for free, and what I would need to do to change the default setting.\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015
