    do you practically have to download something to support different movie formats?
    or is there a place you can look and see if supported?

    WIndows Explorer>tools>folder options>file types. I think this is what you are asking about.

    Not very useful. An app like GSpot will tell you if you need or have the codecs for a vid file, and MediaInfo will give lots of details.

    Both free.
