mpg files save instead of open, how to change this behavior?
Hi,
When I click on a link on a website that links to a mpg file, Im prompted to
save the file, then once it's saved windows media player will play it, but
how can I set the default so that the file is played from the link instead
of prompting me to save it.

Or even, if I click on the mpg link, then have windows ask me if I want to
open it or save it would be nice too.

Thanks

Sorry to answer with a question - did you find a way around this? I have
exactly the same problem, and can't find any way of getting mp3 links to
stream in the way they do on XP.
