Hey i was wondering if there is way to have realplayer 11 be set as the default media player for 8.04. I tried doing it with mplayer, but I messed it up, I dont really even know what I did, and I actually dont like it anyway, the two windows bother me.

I installed realplayer through the .bin file from the website
