After updating to 10.5, I can't play linked windows media files.

In 10.4, after clicking on a link, safari or firefox would automatically open windows media player and play the video.

Now, windows media player doesn't work entirely. I have a few programs that do still work and play .wmv files.

How do I set up safari and firefox to use these programs (mplayer, e.t.c.) instead of windows media player to open the files?? can this even be done??

is there an update to windows media player that i am not aware of?

QUOTE Thanks
