Preference to Media Player over Quicktime ?

  wateland 09:21 26 Jan 2006

Quicktime has decided to make itself the player of choice on my computer. How can I ensure that downloads automatically open in Media Player as they used to?

with Media Player - select properties - general - where it says 'opens with' select 'change' select 'Media Palyer and make sure always use this box is ticked - 'apply' and that should solve it ;)

Right click file, open with, choose prog, select MP and tick always use box.

Or open Media Player and click on Tools>Options then seleck the File Types tab.

Ypu will get a list of file types..scroll down it and tick all that you want associated with Media Player.Click apply and OK out.

There is a "Select All" button,but if you use that it will include DVD playback, and Media Player by default doesn't have the correct codecs for that.

There's also Set Program Access and Defaults from the Start menu or Add/Remove Programs panel.
