    I cant seem to get Netscape Communicator 7.1 to open .mpg files with Windows Media Player.

    I went to Preferences --> Helper Apps, and typed it in there, but it didnt work. It just keeps opening them with Quicktime within the netscape browser.

    Will Netscape even work with WMP?

    Thanks

    Anthony, give in to the dark side... Embrace your hatred of Microsoft, only then can you uninstall Netscape and complete your training... Together we can browse the internet as father and son!

    No need to get nasty, Jack.

    Just use Mozilla Firebird and be happy.

    What happens when you double-click on an .mpg file in the Windows Explorer? If QT comes up, you need to associate your MPEG files to the player of your choice:

    - Hightlight an .mpg file in Windows Explorer
    - Keep SHIFT pressed while you click the right mouse button
    - Pick "Open with" from the context menu
    - Select your favorite application and make sure to select 'Always use this program to open this type of file'
    - Press OK

    Done.

    actually, my mpeg files have always been opened with WMP. With IE and all.Just recently my IE just gets an error each time i open it. I can either SEND or DONT send the error report.

    I tried to unistall IE to reinstall it, but it wont let me (in use by another app).

    So I just decided to try netscape. Any ideas?

    thanks

    Which IE are you using at the moment? I would just try and install the new version over what you have now. Current version is 6 SP1.

    Rob, do you remember a little movie called The Empire Strikes back? Now go back and read my post (and play particular attention to how I signed it).

    I was joking around [​IMG]
