Video Format Support
mp4,ebm,avi,mkv,m4v,mpg,f4v,2ts,wmv,flv,mov,wav,tp,ts
Whirligig supports DirectShow, Media Foundation and VideoLan media. In practice what this means is that without installing any codecs you can play back avi's and if you install the related codecs you can play back those video formats.

Important Notice.
Without the codecs correctly installed you will find only a small amount of files can be played back. I have written a guide in the dissusion board to help get the codecs installed and working for Whirligig.[url]http://steamcommunity.com/app/451650/discussions/0/364042262873027118/[/url]
