Windows 7: WMP Downloads ?

WMP Downloads ?

Hi guys,

I am having some trouble figuring this out .

Sometimes when I click on a video clip off a web page it opens up in WMP. And other times it downloads to the downloads file, where I have to open it up there.

My question is : how can I get ALL video clips to open up in WMP without having to go to the " downloads file "


Many thanks,

It may be the actual files. One thing could be the type of video file. But, go to the Control Panel/Default Programs. Click on "Set Your Default Programs" and then Click on Windows Media Player and then finally click on "Set this program as default". That should set WMP as default for all the file types it can display or play.
