A quick way to open a URL in QuickTime Player
Authored by: Shane Palmer on Jun 08, '11 07:32:28AM

You don't even need to do this much work. Once you have Flip4Mac installed, which you should in order to view WMV files, it knows how to handle the mms:// URL either when typing it into Safari or double-clicking on a .inetloc file that begins with mms:// (you can do this by dragging an mms:// URL from Safari to the Desktop). Flip4Mac's WMV Player acts as the default handler for this URL type (you may need to launch it once for this to register), but since it essentially just redirects everything to QuickTime Player, you can just set the mms:// URL handler directly to QuickTime Player using your favorite tool of choice. In my case I like to use RC Default Apps. Now every mms:// URL will launch in QuickTime Player.
