Restore Media Player as default from QT

Installed iTunes and got QuickTime installed at the same time. Now iTunes is a sound player I could live with. But it also got me QuickTime which have the annoying habit of playing any video clip inside a IE-window. Previously I got the Windows Media Player launched and I was happy with that.

How do I get rid of Quicktime without killing iTunes? Uninstalling QT killed iTunes. Setting QT so that it only should manage QT-specific format doesn?t do it either. I want mp3, podcasts, web-radio in iTunes and Video / Movies in WMP.

Does anyone know how to cure this?

Open up Windows Media Player; Go to 'Tools' up top, then go to 'Options'. There will be a list of tabs, one of them will say 'File Types', click it and you can select what you want Windows Media player to be the default for.
You can also right click on files that are videos, go to properties and click 'Change' and select windows media player as the default.

Helped, the "mpeg" filtype was only partially associated to WMA. But I also had to remove a registry entry under software/IE that assosiated QT to a mpeg-layer4 attribute.

So you got me thinking in the right direction, thanx!
