Windows Vista "Open" Video Question

Video playback for beginners
I'm sure this is a stupid question with an obvious answer, but...
why when i click a video link does the "file download" pop-up only give me the options of "save or "cancel" and no longer give the additional option of "open".
I am running windows vista and winamp version 5.5 on my work laptop and have this problem.
On my old personal laptop I am running windows xp and winamp version 5.094 and when i click a link it gives me all 3 options "open/save/cancel"

This is a browser/settings/preferences issue as to what application handles downloads, and nothing to do specifically with Winamp. Check/adjust your browser's settings as to how it handles downloads. It varies from browser to browser, and since you never bothered to mention what browser you are using I'll just mention my browser of choice here --> Mozilla Firefox...

Tools > Options > Content > File Types > Manage > Download Actions > set/change accordingly

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.
