Solved: Make Media Player Classic the default?
I want to use Media Player Classic as my default player for all video format (as it the best i've found so far), but i can't seem to be able to make it the default.
I've tried right clicking a file Open With... but when the program list appears (to choose the default program) MPC isnt there. I have then tried adding the program to the list by searching for it, but it doesnt add to the program list.

I have tried changing the associations by going to file types and changing it there, but i get the same problem.

Now, i know nothing about changing my registry, but this seems like the only option left... Am i wrong?

Matt.
