Web Pages w/Links to MPEGS

By TSQR1951 ·
I am doing some web pages that have Links to MPEGS. In IE, Mediaplayer pops up automatically, but not so with Netscape.

Is there a way to get Media Player to play with Netscape

Web Pages w/Links to MPEGS

The ability to view MPEG's in any browser is a function of file association. In Netscape, you can associate MPEG's to MediaPlayer by doing the following:
1. At the top of your Netscape browser window, click on Edit.
2. Scroll down the menu and click on Preferences.
3. In the new window that opens, click on the "+" next to Navigator.
4. Click on Applications.
5. Click on the button that says "New Type...". (We're almost done, hang in there.)
6. In the new window that opens, under "Description of Type:" enter "MPLAYER2 file"
7. Under "File extension:" enter "MPEG MPG MPE MPV M1V"
8. Under "MIME Type:" enter "video/mpeg"
9. Under "Application to use:" browse looking for "Mplayer.exe". This is usually in the c:\windows directory.
10.Click Apply or OK until all the little windows close.
11. Netscape should now player MPEG's with MediaPlayer. (I hope...hehehehe).
GOOD LUCK
