I am looking for an alternative to Windows Media Player 11. The only thing I liked about Windows Media Player was that when clicking on a video link from Internet Explorer, the file would open immediately and start playing (or buffering and playing). I guess it stored the video as a temp file, but in any event it didn't force me to save the file to disk first. I don't like VLC media player at all, so I am trying out Media Player Classic instead. It is nearly perfect, except that it forces me to save files to disk if I click on a link from Internet Explorer. The files are properly registered. I don't know what the problem is, unless that's just the way it is in MPC. Any ideas? Anything similar to MPC that will automatically open registered file types?
