Media player help

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I have a problem, after downloading songs and videos through imesh and trying to play them back inside imesh i get an error message telling it it cant be played back because teh computer does not know what the default player is, How can that be when i clearly have Winamp set as the default player.


Any ideas / help welcome ??

    Cant you play them using winamp?

    If not then just wait till they have downloaded because it may be a bug with imesh unless you can fiddle with the preferences.

    And no im not gonna moan about all that piracy crap everyone moans about so your safe.

    Its not illegal to download files from places like imesh, it is however illegal to share them :yes:

    :p So no one needs to moan

    Havent tried opening WMP first coz i dont use it, i use winamp, and its set to my default player.

    I just want to be able to preview what ive downloaded first within imesh rather than have to wait till its done and play it in another player, Its an intermittent problem so i cant put my finger on what the cause is
