Yes, you can play all those using DirectShow. Directshow uses the codecs you have installed to build whatever graph you need to play a media. So you can play any media files you have the codecs installed. Windows does come with a few codecs, but things like divx, xvid, etc require you to download codecs from 3rd parties.

DVD is a little different than simply playing a media file i think, but there''s a section on DVD playing in the DirectX docs.
