    Reseting default file association for .3g2 (video)

    I installed an app and lost my default file associations for .3g2 files. I can no longer play back videos which I captured using the Camera program.

    I suspect one solution is to reset the registry entries under HKCR\3g2file. Can anyone tell me what hey have under there for Shell and and DefaultIcon?

    Is there another way to reset to the default config for the i760?

    Thanks!

    I'm sure that hard reset will fix this. I'm also sure that there is a way to change the registry/file associations without such a drastic measure.


    More/less what I need to know is what is the name of the program (exe) which is run to show the video. I Suspect this is a samsung specific app.

    You tried uninstalling the app?

    * wow no file association options in Windows Mobile Player - bleh

    I wish there was a central file association menu - I know I can change these settings in TCPMP ... I changed the file to open with TCPMP but the audio wouldn't play.

    PHM Regedit is what you need to try and mess with the settings. If/when you get things back to the way you want do a Registry backup.

    * just want to edit in here that this ended up saving me from a hard reset. Like a moron tinkering around I saw that Total Commander let you change File Associations if you choose Properties for a file. I did this for mp3 breaking the wmplayer association. I saved it by entering the information from slinkygn below (thx!):

    Command: wmplayer.exe
    Parameter: "%1" (remember the quotes - I forgot them till I came back here)
    Icon File: wmplayer.exe
    Index: 0

    Wow. No answers yet?

    I've got the default value for DefaultIcon as reg_sz:

    \windows\wmplayer.exe,2002

    And Shell has two subkeys, Open and Save. Open has a Command subkey, of course; default value there:

    \windows\wmplayer.exe "%1"

    Pretty predictable, I guess. And Save has, oddly enough, a Save Location subkey, with default value:

    My Pictures

    Hope that helps.
