    for some reason, all my wmv files default to mPlayer, and almost 90% of them dont play in mPlayer, and no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get them to default to WMP... any ideas?

    Try this.
    1) Right click on a WMV file.
    2) select "get info"
    3) expand "open with"
    4) select "other" from drop box
    5) find WMP and check off "always open with"

    This should make WMP the default player for that file.

    just checked, and thats exactly what its set to.... but for some reason is still wants to default to mPlayer... I can't even get FireFox to open them in WMP without dicking around in the options every time

    that has worked for me but i could never figure out how to make all wmv files to play in wmp. For some reason even wmv files are defaulted to vlc.
    Any ideas??

    furthermore, you should click the box that says to open all files of that type with the selected application. that way you don't have to keep going through your filed individually in order to make them use the same player.

    Try changing it with RCDefaultApp from rubicode - on versiontracker.
