    I downloaded a video to watch and every time I try to watch downloaded videos I get taken to this site and told I need this, but I can't find anywhere to download it. Is it some sort of add on to Quick Time?:confused:

    Well the first few vids worked now there is a new problem with the other vids I downloaded. It says "There is no default application specified to open the document". What does this mean and how can I fix it?

    LOL, no, I mean a link to an example video that gives you this problem.

    .MPR should be an audio format though, from what I see -- not a video format... If you can't drag the file into Quicktime, perhaps try changing the filename to end in .m4a instead....

    I have no idea what that file is... sorry. .mpr is not a normal file ending for a video file. And, erm, assuming it is what it looks like: if you're downloading commercial music or videos -- pirating -- please don't ask for help here. You're on your own with that. If its not pirated content, then whoever uploaded it gave it a strange extension for some reason.

    Nothing pirated here. It's a replay of a race series of Live For Speed that I wanted to watch. Thanks for your help.

    Huh, then you'd really have to go back to the poster... even googling I couldn't find any examples of when there would be a video file with that extension. Good luck!
