I've recently started using xbmc and i love it. The only thing is i cant find a way of setting it as the default media player.

It just does not show up on the default list. I hope someone out there help on this.

xbmc is a media center not a media player. You must start xbmc first to open a file with-in I agree it is a great media center probebly the best but i would use Mplayer if you want to just click on files to open them
