    Let's say you save a file to your desk top and you want to make windows MP
    your default well you click on the file once then hold down your shift key
    and then click your right button on your mouse.A menu should pop up and
    there should be an "ope with" option choose windows media player.
    There should be an option at the bottom of the dialog box asking if you want
    o use that as your default.Or more correctly it will ask if you want to use
    that program all the time....hope this helps.

    Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> In the "Multimedia"
    section, turn off "Play Videos In Web pages".

    BTW - It most likely IS using WMP to play the video ... it's just
    shelled within the web page.
