My Wiondows Media Player wont work so I switched to Divx, wich works great on files that I have downloaded but if I am viewing internet content it always goes to WMP. I was wondering if there was a way to change it so that instead of going to WMP when I click on a video link, that instead it will go directly to Divx.

Any ideas would be very helpful.
Thanks

Hello,

The answer to your question depends heavily on what type of video you are trying to view. If it is streaming video, then you are basically restricted to WMP and RealPlayer. If you can download the video file (a right-click "save as"), you can then play it in a nice opensource media player like Media Player Classic or use your Divx player. What problems are you having with WMP?

Cheers,
Tom
