Hey, I'm having a real problem with QuickTime right now. Normally I would just muck through the problem and find a solution, but I'm so pissed right now I just want to see what you all can come up with. Basically, quicktime is taking associations of file types IN the browser. Such as audio, playlists, movies, etc... Case in point to explain what I mean. The file extension M3U, a playlist file, is set in windows to use Winamp. And that works fine, I double-click a M3U file, it plays in Winamp. BUT, if an M3U file is linked in a web page, or embedded I should say, quicktime tries to play it then. Which is driving me mad, I hate quicktime, and everytime it attempts to play something, the browser crashes and I have to kill the process. Even after upgrading to a new version. It crashes ALL my browsers, including Firefox. I'm so sick of quicktime! I've went into the QT settings and it is not set to handle ANY extensions. Yet it still makes itself the default for web based links. Can I force Media player or winamp instead? The only thing I want quicktime for is the ocassional download in that format, and to watch movie previews on Apple web site. Whats the difference between a file association for explorer, and one for embedded in web pages? For some reason I can't find the info I'm looking for. A friend of mine also had a heck of a time with the same thing, QT taking over the world even when it's set NOT to. I went into IE settings and disabled the plugin. This stops the browser crashing because it can't open. But all it does is IE pops up saying a "required control is disabled" and the media doesn't play. What can I do?
