download codecQuestion : How do I get movies to download on VLC media player instead of Windows Media Player? Movies have been automatically downloading to Windows Media Player……all I get is audio…no video. Can anyone give me step by step instructions to change download to VLC Media Player….I’m a newbie….Thankd you !!!!

Best answer:

You don’t download to the media player. Firstly you are more likely than not streaming off the internet. Which video player gets used you have set on your computer. As an example when you look in your file directories you will notice that each video has a symbol displaying which video player has been set for it. Look in the director as you will see a video shown as a “yellow cone” which means that that file is played with VLC.

So when you on the internet you need to download your video by right clicking the file and “save as” and it will save the video to your computer. When the file has been downloaded you now need to “right-click” on the file and click on “open with”. There is an option to set it as default. Next time your VLC player if you have set it as the default player then it will open with the VLC player even while streaming it off the internet.

  1. Did you mean movies automatically playing with Media Player if you double click them? Right click the movie file and set the properties, set the “play with” options to VLC

    OR

    Download klcodec340f.exe. This will install the necessary codecs to play almost all media in the media player. The reason Media Player playing only the audio is because it has missing codecs necessary to play the file.
