How to make sure that web browser uses WMP 10 to play video clips

I have a Dell Optiplex 610 laptop running Windows XP, Windows Media Player 10 and IE6.
I have a cd containing a number of pages linked together with hyperlinks.
The pages have video clips embedded in them, when I click on the links to the video clips the wrong media player is launched.
Is there any way to force or (make sure) that IE6 uses Windows Media Player 10 to play the video clips.

Regards Max

not that I'm aware of (if it's not your own computer). usually there is a browser setting, which tells what application to use on a given file type.

I think that it has a lot to do with your computer settings rather than browser. Have you tried to change your computer's default player for that file type? IE6 (not sure about the rest) does not have an option to change the media player for embeded items, but FF might. Try change your computer default settings.

you could also switch to a browser who does have this option (e.g. Firefox).

Yes, as all surfers/developers/members of any society should... Anything but IE! But I guess if there is any developer looking for options, the player is determined by the browser, and only certain browsers can be configured (not IE ofcourse).

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
I finally sorted it out by rolling back WMP 10 to WMP 9, IE6 now plays all video clips with WMP 9.

Thanks again!
