movies and VR's are playing incorrectly in your Windows Media Player:
It's likely you have Windows Media Player set up as the default
player for media file types. That means the player may launch itself
and try to play QuickTime files, even though it will not play them
There are two different ways to fix
Option 1: Uninstall Windows Media Player, and reinstall it doing
a "custom install." You will be offered the choice of
whether or not to assign .qt and .mov file types to the Media Player.
So click "no" or uncheck the box to decline the option.
You want to do this because the problem you are having with QuickTime
files is due to the fact that Media Player assigns these files types
Option 2: If you already have the most recent version of QuickTime
installed, you can re-assign the files to the QuickTime player.
• From the Start menu, go to "Settings," and then
• Double click the QuickTime control panel. You'll see this
• Click on MIME settings, and it will open this window:
• Click on "Quick Time Movie" and then click "OK."
You will have to close and restart your browser (not your entire
computer) in order for this change to take effect.
If you have the most recent plug-in and are still having problems,
visit the QuickTime
support page for more information.
