Not sure if that means the problem is fixed or not, and you didn't answer any of my questions... but if you want to try my latest regfix (for WinXP only), here it is.

Note: the .reg file assumes Winamp is installed to the default C:\Program Files\Winamp dir, so if it isn't, you'll need to manually edit the .reg file in Notepad first.

[edit: regfix updated 19th Jan 2006, download count reset to 0, was 38]

Doesn't look like you tried it to me.
Note, that regfix is different to the last one.

Anyway... so is the problem fixed after doing a system restore, or what?!

Mr. Egg,

I recently installed the latest version of Quicktime and am having the same problem (clicking an .mp3 link on the web causes a new IE browser window to open with Quicktime). I tried your regfix, but what happened is that when I clicked on an .mp3 file link, a new webpage opened as before, but instead of Quicktime opening, nothing at all opened. Right now, I've uninstalled Quicktime, and Winamp opens and plays the files correctly. However, I would like to try re-installing Quicktime, if you can come up with a fix ;-) Here is a link to some .mp3 files on my own website as examples of files that I'm having the difficulty with.

Thanks,

Gail aka Nightingail

Did you try installing QuickTime Alternative instead of QuickTime?

How good are you at working with the registry?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins

Anything in any of the subkeys in there (Extension, MIME, etc) which relates to MP3 or QuickTime or audio/mpeg ?

Haven't tried installing the Alternative yet, but will do if you think that's a better solution than trying to find a fix with Quicktime.

I'm ok working with the registry. Hmmm, even though Quicktime is currently uninstalled, within the Plugins folder, I see a subfolder called Extensions, and then within that is a folder called .mp3. It shows:

Default QuickTime Plug-in 7.0.3

Content Type audio/mpeg

Location C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS\npqtplugin2.dll

Version 7.0.3

There is a MIME folder also, with an audio/mpeg subfolder. There it shows
Default (value not set)
Extension .mp3

I'm not sure if I've given you exactly the information you've asked for. I'm comfortable with the registry if someone explains what needs to be changed, but I'm no way an expert ;-)

Thanks.

Yup, Bamahusker is most certainly right :-)
There's a link to QT Alt on the first page of this thread.

Other than that, nighting85, yes, those are the guilty registry entries which are causing the problem.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extensions\.mp3

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\MIME\audio/mpeg

Delete those subkeys (in bold text). Problem solved.

You have to go in the registry via regedit, but it was an easy fix.
in the registry, go to:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\
then scroll down till you see the audio/ folders.
Click on an audio/ folder. To the right you will see the name CLSID and a data value.
The data value for winamp is {cd3afa76-b84f-48f0-9393-7edc34128127}
The data value for quicktime is {02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B}

Go through the audio/ folders and make sure they are all set to the winamp value. For me only one needed to be changed, audio/mpeg. Once I changed that the problem went away and i've had the happiest single hour of my life. hope this helps.
Thank you fluxcap, that worked perfectly. I had this problem when I installed the newest quicktime alternative on a clean machine that never had original quicktime. I deselected all the mp3 options in quicktime alt, but alas, it didn't work just like the others here. It was really starting to get annoying. I tried your regedit trick and replaced the value in the audio/mpeg under MIME with the winamp value you provided. Voila, problem solved. Very nice work! I'm so happy I registered just to say thanks.
