    I like to use VLC media player to play all my videos on a Mac.

    You can also use Flip4Mac to play Windows videos in Quicktime.

    You'll want to install Perian codec pack, this helps with tons of formats playing in Quicktime, iTunes, Frontrow, etc. Then install VLC and the free version of Flip4Mac at the least and that will help with .asf, and .wmv.

    As for your CV, download OpenOffice Suite for Mac known as NeoOffice, and install it. This is extremely similar to Microsoft Office and can even save Documents, Spreadsheets, and Presentations in the MS Office Formats (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, etc.)

    Hope these help out.
