Media Foundation (Windows 8 and 10 only)
Media Foundation offers good suuport for most video formats. It comes as standard on both Windows 8 and 10. If you're consered about installing additional decoders on your system then this is a good option.


Video Lan
You can also try libVLC. This is a codec library which has a wide range of built in video decoders and streaming options. This library is used in the popular video player VLC. It offers a larger range of video playback options than Media Foundation and doesn't require decoders to be installed.

Image Support

xcf, gif, tiff, tif, ilbm, pcx, tga, bmp, pnm, webp, bpg, jpeg, jpg, jps, png, pns
Whirligig will open most image formats but be aware there are restrictions on hardware so images with very high resolutions (over 8k) may not work.
