    I would suggest you use VLC media player as a default viewer. Its free and plays everything I tried to play.

    If you just want to view your video files on your computer than I agree with the suggestion to use VLC Media Player.

    Also another suggestion if you really want to install a codec pac you could go to https://ninite.com/ and select K-Lite Codecs, you can also install VLC media player at the same time.

    Or PotPlayer: it plays all video formats like VLC, but it has many more features, and the interface is more "mouse friendly".

    Windows should support those formats without needing a separate codec pack. I've tried VLC on 2 PCs but it's slow to load - maybe because both PCs use Kaspersky antivirus? I just use the Films & TV app for playing movies and it's fine.

    Here is the link for the player. Even though it does not mention Windows 10, the program is frequently updated, the last update being 2017-01-04.

    The K Lite Codecs is the way to go in my book. It make the Windows media work awesome.
