    How to make another video player as my default video player in Windows?

    I am trying to play some videos in Media Player 11 in Windows Vista but whenever I do that it fails saying some codec problem so I want to install a new Video player now but my question is how to make the third party video player as Windows default video player? Is it possible to remove Media player from default player? Can you tell me the steps to follow for it?

    Go to the folder where the specific file you wish to play is located.
    Right-click on the file and select "Open With" and click "Choose Program".
    Select the program you wish to use to open the media file with and select "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" option.
    Normaly you can set the default web browser, something other than "Internet Explorer", but you are not authorised to choose another media player, like VLC or GOM. It by default select the “current media player”, not allow you to change the default media player for all files types.
    You need to manually right-click on each file type and choose to open that file type with another media player and that is the process.

    Hope it works.

    Hello friend..

    Yes Window Media Player does not support the all the media file so you need to install the another Media player. you install the VLC, GOM and KMP any other as you like..

    To set the default Media Player follow these steps:-

    Mouse-over the “Open with” option on the list, and then select “Choose default program…”
    A new window will appear that displays a group of Recommended Programs at the top, and then Other Programs below that.
    Click the any player like aGOM Player to select it

    Hello Friend,

    Some Of Videos In Not Played by The Microsoft Media Player For Resolving This Reason Consider Two Ways :

    1. Download The "media.player.codec.pack" Setup And Installed All Videos Are Supported By The Media Player After The Installation
    2. Used After Players Like KM Player etc.

    Dear friend,

    You can set only one video player as the Default Video Player.

    To set the video player, you can set it through Control Panel.

    Or the other easy option is by right-clicking the video file.

    Now, choosing option "Open with". Select the video player and play the video file.

    Video Player will be set as default video player.

    See a file in which the particular document you want to participate in is located.
    Right-click around the document and select "Open Having" and click "Opt for Application ".
    Pick out this system you want to make use of to open up the media document having and select "Always utilize the chosen program to open up such a document" option.
    Normally it is possible to set the normal Internet browser, a little something apart from "Net Internet explorer", but you're not necessarily authorised to select a further media player, just like VLC as well as GOM. This by default pick the “existing media player”, not necessarily permit you to change the normal media player for anyone documents types.
    It is advisable to by hand right-click about just about every document type and judge to open up that will document type having a further media player which is the process.
    To line the normal Mass media Player abide by these steps:-

    Mouse-over the “Open with” method listed, and choose “Opt for normal program…”
    A new windows will be that will showcases a small grouping of Encouraged Applications at the top, and Different Applications listed below that.
    Click the any kind of player just like aGOM Player to select it.
