Panasonic tz5 movie files will not play in Windows only Quicktime

\015 Hi there, I changed my camera from a Sony to a Panasonic tz 5 and the movies clip I record do not play in Windows Media Player or from Windows Photo Gallery anymore. I find Quicktime very ackward as I have to tell every movie clip separately that I want to open it in Quicktime.\015\012\015\012Any solution to this problem. I quite like the Photo Gallery and that I can just click on an old Sony movie clip and it will play automatically.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012\015\012Manuela\015

Answers :

If the movies are recorded as .avi, then you will have to use QuickTime. One way to avoid having to select QuickTime each time is to hold the SHIFT key, right click over the video file and select "Open With". Now select QuickTime (otherwise select other programs) and scroll to QuickTime from the list and you should see a check box at the end of the list and make sure its checked. Here is a screen shot:
Now click OK and the next time you open the camera movie files, it will automatically open in QuickTime.
