You can easily get the source code of open source software like VLC media player, Linux, etc from the software owner's website.

You cannot get source code of Windows media player because it is a proprietary software i.e. it is owned by Microsoft and they don't want to make the source public.

PS: Please don't leave a trail of dots or question marks in your post. It makes the post unreadable.

Source code of open source softwares can be seen by disassemblers like ollydbg and microsoft disassemblers,but they give the assembly language code.

Open source developers make available the source code in the language they use.

You can find VLC media player source code here -> VideoLAN developers - VLC media player

Remember that open source software developers always make available the source code of their program. There are a whole lot of open source softwares, just google them and get their source from their respective websites.

You can search various open source software here -> SourceForge.net: Find and Develop Open Source Software
