    Okay i guess i have divix player installed on my computer, and so everytime I open up a ".wmv" file, it opens up divx player..

    How do i change the system default program for all wmv files top open with quicktime (i have the plugin)..

    when i right click on the file and click open with.. and set always open with on, it only does it for that particular file, not all wmv files

    if you don't click change all, you can close the window and it'll change it for just that file...

    Ah, I see. I figured it'd be common sense to click change all since that was what he wanted to do. :hs:

    You probably missed the step that I said to click on "get info" and click on "open with" instead. There's no way you would have missed the "change all" button. :o
