for viewing pictures you can use Preview which is the Default picture viewer on a Mac.

For downloading video's, I use Safari or iTunes and if they need converting, I use HandBrake.

Good place to download apps would be the App Store, accessible via the App Store icon in the dock.

but I suspect that "Free" means "illegal"

Have you checked out iPhoto? You get to see all your pictures in all sorts of ways

Photo files created in Windows should be easy to read with Preview or with iPhoto. To view certain video files that were created by and for Windows, I have been using the free version of Flip4Mac: . It has worked very well over the years.
