    You can always just open media player first and hit file/open and then point it to your m2v files.

    But the best way is to change the file association so that these files always open in media player. Right click on any m2v file and go to
    open with." Depending on the os you might have to hold the shift key while right clicking to open this option. Now select "choose program" option. Find Windows media player in the list (if its not there select browse and point it to the file) and enable the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" option. Hit Ok and from now on double clicking on an m2v file will cause it to be played by Windows Media player.
