changing default media players...
    #3596983 - 01/08/05 03:49 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I just downloaded realplayer which I hate but I kinda need it to play some videos I got. Anyways that damn Realplayer set itself to be the default player, so when I click on a mp3 file it automaticly opens realplayer. Anybody know how to change it so winamp is my default media player?

I believe if you right-click an MP3 file there is an option titled "Open With". Go to "Choose Program" and select winamp. Then at the bottom of the choices there is a checkbox that says "Always use the selcted program to open this type of file". Check that and click OK.

That should do it.
