    Although VLC or KMplayer provides better features and streaming in videos , then why are you insisting on making Windows Player as default.
    It cannt even run broken and uncomplete files , I would advice you to use VLC instead.

    But still if you want to make Window Media Player as default :

    Select any video , right click on it , now select properties.
    Now click on " Change " button ,in front of Open with .

    Now select the Window player program as default and click OK.

    Windows media player can be set to a default player.
    It will not run the .flv file formats and other some formats.
    In order to set the player as default you can do it in the above way stated or by
    just right click the type of file you need to open with the default program and check the check box at the bottom.
    Then the associate file will be opened with windows media player.
    Simply making the windows media player for all the video or audio files may result in the crashing of the program.

    Re: Setting Windows Media Player 11 as the default player in Windows XP

    """DEAR"""

    If your computer is running Windows XP and you have more than one digital media player installed, you can choose Windows Media Player 11 as your default digital media player for all the audio and video file types that it supports. This means that when you attempt to play a supported file type, such as Windows Media Audio (.wma) or Windows Media Video (.wmv), the Player opens automatically and plays the file.
    To set Windows Media Player 11 as your default digital media player

    Open Control Panel.

    *Under Pick a category, click Add or Remove Programs.

    *In the Add or Remove Programs window, click Add or Remove Programs.

    46fe029b-683e-4f51-ba8c-ab02dbb9e8e2_13.jpg

    *In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Set Program Access and Defaults.
    25df72d0-0914-48fb-8c17-61cb75cc9544_14.jpg

    *In the Choose a configuration box, double-click Custom.
    51a9b9d5-6c90-4dca-b657-c3fbf5d9e768_13.jpg

    *In the Choose a default media player area, click Windows Media Player, and then click OK.
    8ebbd729-a116-401e-a3b9-1cab99d61e14_13.jpg

    In some cases, you might set Windows Media Player as the default digital media player for a specific file type but a different player or program opens that file type instead. This may happen for one of the following reasons:

    Another program that competes for audio and video file types, for example .mp3 or .mpg, may have "taken over" that file type, even after you associated the file type with the Player. This program may use registry monitoring to maintain the file-type association. If this happens, you may be able to remove the file-type association in the other program. For more information, see the documentation for the program that has taken over the file-type association.

    A program, such as a Web browser, may use its own file-type association methods to change the default program for a file type. In this case, you can use the configuration options provided by that program to change the file-type association back to Windows Media Player. For more information, see the documentation for that program.

    In Windows Explorer, you may have used the Open With command to open a file with a different program, and on the Open With dialog box, you may have selected the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box. In this case, you can use the same Open With command to change the file-type association back to Windows Media Player. To do so, right-click a file, point to Open With, and then click Choose Program. On the Open With dialog box, click Windows Media Player, and then select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box.
