How to Reset Media Player as default picture & video viewer?

  1. I had it set as the default viewer for all picture and video files,
    then installed Intervideo to use with my TV tuner card.

    Now, all pictures & video stores on my computer have changed
    to Intervideo files. I know I un-clicked all those types of files
    from using Interv. as the default viewer when I installed the
    Interv. app.

    How do I re-set Win Media Player as the default viewer?
    I've opened and looked thru it and can't locate how to
    do that.

    Click start/programmes/set programme access and defaults. Click on the custom button and under choose default media player, choose Windows media player. Click ok.

    Well, THAT was shamefully easy! :-(

    I must have looked at nearly every folder/file on the
    computer except that one!

    Only problem is, if you use another media player, you`ll have to reset it again.

    I have to do this quite frequently after using Winamp for instance.
