i can't figure out how to make my windows media player the default player?  Since Steve started using the creative player with his Mp3... that player comes on everytime now and it doesn't give me a choice of what player I want to use when i view a wmv.  Cry

anyone know how i can change the default?
Thanks so much..
debbie

Assuming you are using XP, right click on a mpg file,
Open with >> Choose Program
Select WMP
Check the 'always use this program to open this type of file' (not necessarily word for word, but close)  box.

Unless your computer is unusually grouchy that should work.

You need to do that to a file saved on your disk, my bad.

if you're using internet explorer look at this page:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307859

if you're using firefox go to the menus and go: tools > options > applications (tab)
there you'll see the associations which tell the browser what to do when you encounter content.

you could also go into windows media player and in the menus go: tools > options > file types (tab)
there you'll see the associations which tell the player what to do when you encounter content.
