    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.

    did u try changing the associations from within MP Classic?? cleaning the registry is recommended though. Get this program for the job: Regcleaner.

    have sorted the defaults set-up now... Can't believe i didn't think of changing it in MPC.
    anyway, thats that sorted.

    oh, what is the publishing company of RegCleaner? i found 4 or 5 similar programs from different companies.
