When I put a DVD into my laptop, it recognises it as such and opens Windows Media Player. I then receive and error message that says that it can't play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed. I then open VLC Media Player to play the DVD. I would rather that the laptop defaulted to the VLC Media Player. What do I have to do to change the default, please? I am running Vista Home Basic version 6.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks very much, Dugimodo. It was easy to change and now I have the default that I want.

It's easy when you know where to look, eh?

:thanks
