    Set Coreplayer as default

    Hello, I am new to this forum.
    I have a moto q global and have installed the new version of core player for it. I love the player. It works nicely.
    The phone comes with a WMP.....which kindda sucks for playing movies.
    Anywayz, my question is........ How do I make coreplayer my default player for movies and or music. I have been trying to figure it out for a while now.

    How do I make CorePlayer Mobile my default media player?

    Figured it out. This is what I did for future reference, in case anybody has the same problem.

    To set CorePlayer Mobile as the default player goto: 'tools > preferences > select page > file associations' and select all then press ok. All files are now associated with CorePlayer Mobile.

    How does the Coreplayer compare to the .72RC version of TCPMP? Are the essentially the same?

    essentailly yes they are the same
    core player you pay for and you can use youtube without the hack and TCPMP is free and you use the hack for youtube

    those are the differences i know so far
    (i use TCPMP)

    If you have all the file associations right you should be able to use your browser to find a vid at youtube to click on and then Core should open. Thats how I do with TCPMP anyway!

    Since we're talking about coreplayer and TCPMP, can anyone tell me how both of these programs handle album cover images?

    Most of my folders have album art, but it only shows some of the time. Wasn't sure if there is some sort of naming convention for TCPMP to recognize. Anyone know how it works?

    In coreplayer, rename the album art to the word "FOLDER". Without the quotes. That should work all the time.
