Does anyone know of any good video players for ASP.Net that can play many different file types? It can be free or not. I want it to be able to play at least these types: .3gp, .asf, .wmv, .avi, .mpeg, .mp4, .vob, .mov.
Thanks for any suggestions.

You're not going to find many. The largest problem here is not an ASP.Net video player, but any player in general that can be embedded in a web page. Right now the standard is MP4 (and still flv for flash-based). You'll be hard-pressed to find ones that
will play vob files as well as windows media and apple quicktime. I've yet to see one play all of these, and make it so it works in multiple browsers and multiple platforms. If your audience is anyone with a mobile device your best bet is to stick with .mp4
and use a conversion tool and a free player such as jPlayer or flowplayer.
