This seems strange and maybe someone can help me:
When I click on an avi file link on a website, it starts to play with Quicktime.
However, Quicktime doesn't play some of them.
I thought fine. Let me change the default "opens with" for avi files to Windows Media Player.
I checked in Windows Explorer, and avi files are ALREADY set up to open with Windows Media Player.
I noticed that when I save them to my had drive, they play with Windows Media Player automatically, but from the web site they play with Quicktime, which doesn't play some of them...
I tried to remove Quicktime, but IE still wanted to pick Quicktime, or do nothing when clicking on an avi file on web sites, even though WMP is installed.
I then decided to perform a 'System Restore' to just before Quicktime was uninstalled.
The restore said it was successful. However, it didn't really work, since Quicktime is still missing; no big deal I can reinstall it.
I just want IE to open the avi files with Windows Media Player...
Why is Internet Explorer (I have IE 6 by the way) operating differently from Windows Explorer for avi file playback?
Any suggestions on how to fix/change this?
