Quicktime Error & Media Players
I'm trying to watch a TV show episode and all I get is the Quicktime logo
with a question mark in it. I get a window asking if I want Quicktime to use
the latest "MIME" but I don't know what that is. I assume the video requires
Quicktime which I think I have but now I'm not sure. I think my default
player is Windows Media Player but, again I'm not sure.

I guess some videos require Quicktime but others will work with any media
player. How do I determine which media players I have installed and which is
my default?

You left out some important information that could be useful to help
troubleshoot your issues by others reading your post.

What operating System are you using?
What version of Windows Media Player are you using?
What is the link to the site you are trying to view your TV shows on.

On a guess, it sounds like you've allowed QuickTime to take over some or all
of your media file types.

Assuming you are running Windows Media Player 11 on a Windows XP machine you
might try the following to redemy the problem:

1.) Open 'Windows Media Player'
2.) Go to Tools||Options
3.) Go to the 'File Types' tab
4.) There will be a list of compatible file types with check boxes next to
them, remove all the checkmarks and close the 'Windows Media Player'.
5.) Re-open 'Windows media Player' and navigate to the "File Types" tab
again, click the Select All button.
6.) Click Apply

Or, uninstall QuickTime.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell
