    what is the default file type that Windows Media plays? i.e is it ".avi", or ".mp4" or what?

    .WMA (windows media audio) files are what it plays, but really it plays a various file types as standard.

    Windows media player rips tracks from cd's to .wma, but you can change the setting to .mp3

    The default video format is .wmv (windows media video)

    will it play anything else like .avi or something?

    Yes, but avi files come in different flavours - or "codecs". It will only play your avi files if the corresponding codecs are installled in your computer.

    ]VLC player will play just about any avi file you throw at it

    As long as you have the right codecs.
