i recently installed Media Player Classic on my computer cuz of its ability of playin many formats. when i first downloaded it i noticed it doesnt need to be "installed". it works perfectly but theres 1 problem, all my video files on my computer have this "unknown file type" icon, but when i click on them they work. its kinda weird, can anyone help me get rid of the icon and bring up the Media Player Classic icon? thanks edit: the version is 126.96.36.199
Right click on one of the video icons. Select "open with", then "choose program". Browse to media player classic(or whatever it is called), choose it, click the "always use this program" box. Click "OK". that should do it.
nope still doesnt work...does MPC has its own icon or no?
It might not, can't be to sure as don't use it . You can also try this: start-> all programs -> set program access and defaults -> custom, scroll to media player, check media player classic, & hit ok. Maybe that will work
nope MPC isnt even in the list
You should be able to open an "options" menu in MPC, and select what formats you want it to have control over.

That is because it is NOT installed, it is just being run.
The Options panel, is in "Media Player Classic -> View -> Options -> Formats".
I didn't think it had an icon, but it does appear to.
If you create a shortcut to it, and then go to change the icon for the shortcut, check what "path" is listed in the address bar. It should be Media Player Classic.
