    My old pc (before it died) used to open videos when online when they were clicked on, and the video would finish loading while you could watch it. On the pc I'm using now, when you click on a video, it begins to automatically download it instead of opening Media Player, so you have to wait for the whole thing to download before you can view it. Anyone know how to change it so it doesn't auto-download anymore?

    Set WMP to be your default video player. it should work then.
    RealPlayer also plays while downloading; what are you using?

    I'm using an older Media Player (the newer ones have too much spam attached), but I never had the same problem with my old pc, so I'm assuming it's a settings problem, not a player problem.
