    I use VLC Media Player
    Not sure if its the least CPU or not (and I think that may also be related to the quality of the media being played)
    But at least it works without any other update or addon

    There's hardly a difference, though itunes and WMP seems a bit fatter.
    I like media player classic with k-lite codecs.
