    Hello All,

    I installed Nero software on my vista machine and one change that really
    annoys me now that i cant play online videos using media player buffering.
    It used to work, if i clicked on a .wmv link online, it would open the media
    player and satrt playing. Now it starts downloading the file and then after
    done, plays the video.
    How can i enable streaming so that video will play with buffering insead to
    download the file.

    thanks

    For WMV files?

    You would want to reassociate WMV to Windows Media Player. How you do that
    depends upon your version of Windows. The Set Program Access and Defaults
    control panel tool should work everywhere though.
