Quicktime hijacking mpg-movies

Posted on 2006-04-27

Ever since I installed quicktime (with iTunes... really don't like it, but I do have some mov-files I want to watch...), it's been hijacking all mpg-movies I play via Internet Explorer. I've tried to take away all file associations I can find, but obviously there's at least one I've missed. Can anyone help? I just want the Media Player to kick in whenever I start playing an mpg-movie in Explorer...

(what I've tried: in Quicktime player, under Edit-Preferneces-Quicktime Preferences-File Types, removed all mpg-associations; File Type settings in Windows are all set to Media Player; didn't find any file type settings in IE-options...)

    Accepted Solution

    Have a look under control panel.
    Double click Quicktime

    Look at the Browser and File Types tabs here and uncheck as necessary.

    Hadn't noticed that Quicktime had its own icon in control panel... Thanks!
