File Associations

maybe someone knows of an easy way to set windows to use foobar for the files it supports?

if not, maybe someone can make a installer that does this or something?

Save this into foobar.reg and double-click on it:

You'll have to change the path (on both places)  where you have foobar2000.exe located

Code: [Select]
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000file]
@="Foobar2000 Media File"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000file\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\Program files\Foobar2000\foobar2000.exe,0"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000file\shell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000file\shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000file\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\Program files\Foobar2000\foobar2000.exe\" \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.m3u]
@="foobar2000file"

This solution doesn't work in XP (puts playback to WMP).

Go into WMPs preferences and make sure you unselect the above file formats for associations.  It is probably seeing the changes and taking them back.  I hate when programs preserve file associations without asking.
