One Player To Rule Them All

I was just wondering if there was a way to use Windows Media Player instead of Quicktime to play mp3 and video files online.

Some are specifically designed to work with QuickTime only. Try resetting WMP as your default media player for the various file types (WAV, MP3, MPEG, etc) and see if they give you the choice or not. (The exact process depends on your OS.)

I tried this but it did not work. I use Windows XP by the way.
Ah well, thanks for your help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
