Launching Your Media Player

When someone click the link to launch the music, it automatically opens a tab, and begins playing in their browser. I've seen sites where you can click the button, and it asks you how you want to open the file, instead of launching the file...

My code can be seen below...
<p><a href="http://www.dragonfireradio.com/listen.m3u" target=
_blank"><img src="images/Winamp-Logo.png" alt="" width="50" height="50" /></a><a href="http://www.dragonfireradio.com/listen.asx" target=
_blank"><img src="images/WMP_Logo_for_Vista.png" alt="" width="50" height="50" /></a><br /><a href="http://www.dragonfireradio.com/listen.ram" target=
_blank"><img src="images/realplayer.png" alt="" width="50" height="50"/></a><a href="http://www.dragonfireradio.com/live.html" onclick="window.open('http://www.dragonfireradio.com/live.html','popup','width=500,height=500,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0'); return false"><img src="http://cheltenhamfestivals.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/audio-graphic-235x251.jpg" width="50" height="50"/></p>

Whenever someone clicks one of the 3 choices, the music just launches in their browser... I'm sure someone who runs their own radio station can give me a hand here...

(note, I already have a listen Live button, that launches a new window...)

Hmmm - might not be in you control. Does this happen for all users, or just one?

If just one, they might have installed a browser plugin like quicktime that hijacks the PLS file and launches it in a seperate window - in which case, they need to dis-associate that file type with that player.

If all of them, it *might* be a "MIME type" issue with the webserver and that could be remedied with a chat with the server admin.

Ha! I figured it out... the file type is fine, but Mozilla is calling the wrong application.

For other users who may be having this problem, the solution was found by going to TOOLS > OPTIONS > APPLICATIONS and then setting various filetypes to the preferred application.
