    Moved.

    Which application do you want as default to play your downloaded movie files?

    I don't want any to open automatically, I'd rather just choose as and when I want to play the files.

    Open up Safari - Preferences - General tab - uncheck Open "safe" files after downloading.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
