    Is there any way to change a file to a Media player file?
    I have a vidio file on my computer, and want to change it so that I can play it on Media player, at the moment i'm not sure what it is, but it only plays with voeh. Is there a way I can change it so it is a Windows Media player file? or what?
    Let me know.

    ok what is happening here is your current player is playing these by default, it is set to run these types of files (whatever they may be) if you have media player 11 right click on the top bar->tools->options-> file types. tick whatever file these videos are, and it should start playing the files through media player rather than the other The process is much the same for other versions of media player. Now the alternative is to right click on the file then open with-> choose media player but that wont make them play through media player every time if that doesnt work (which it should lol) we will go from there.
