Yes VLC can play it. At least most of them. There was a video where the 
video did not worked, only the audio. But with Mplayer that one worked fine.

I am currently attempting to download the videos by playing the video in 
VLC and dumping the video to a local file. If that works I will upload 
them. I have attempted it before but near the end it did get stuck.
