Whenever I try to view some MPG's on line or other
videos, the file will download and open instead in
opening up a viewer to watch.
For example I went to the file association and changed
the mpg to open with Microsofts Video Player instead of

But whatever i use, the file will download and start
instead of streaming.
All the settings in Explorer have the multimedia section
are checked to play Videos in pages.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

i am having the same problem. when i click on a video it will download then i have to copy the URL and paste it into the widows media player in order for it to play - what a hassle. Before when i clicked on a link, windows media player would automatically open and it would play the file. What gives? any idea on how to get this back??
