i download midi files for my keyboard and normally when i want to play one, the van basko player would play the tune prior to my saving it.
for some reason when i go to a site and pick out a midi  file and play it -i get the quicktime player playing it-i dont want this i need the vanbaskoplayer to play it.
any ideas why this has changed.

    Also you can Open your QuickTime player, select from Edit menu -> Preferences -> QuickTimePreferences.
    Make sure that in the drop down list is selected "Browser Plug-in".
    Click on "MIME Settings" button.
    Open the "Audio" node and deselect MIDI.
