    Something recently changed with my system for opening movies.
    Quicktime used to be the default player for opening movie files.
    For some reason RealPlayer has become the default and I don't really like it.
    I can't seem to find anywhere, either in Quicktime itself or System Preferences where i can set this default.

    Any suggestions?

    To change the default app for opening any file type, Right-click and "Get Info" (or Command-I) on a file of that type, then change the "Open with" to the app you want, then click "Change All"
