IE plays movies in it how do I stop it from doing this.
I am running win 2000 with IE 6 it plays mpeg,avi and mov
files off the net in the browser instead of opening up media player.
how can I change this?
Well ,if i'm getting what you mean the movies are not downloadable ,there are live stream from the site you are on!
IE is not a media player,it uses media player plugins , so this must be what you mean.
Internet options/advanced there is an option for IE tp play video from the net. Uncheck that & see if media player is then chosen.
Also, the movie that you are selecting may not be in media player format.
If they are not streaming and are downloadable ,how do you expect to play them !!???if you could say open it still has to download to a temp folder to play,or it would be streaming video ,are you say you no longer have the option to click open !
