How to use VLC instead of Totem in Iceweasel, in Lenny?
 
Hey all.

I tried to remove the totem-mozilla package in Lenny, because I know totem dosn't work regarding online video... It will remove gnome as well?!

I have installed VLC and the package mozilla-plugin-vlc.

Now my question is: How to make VLC the default player in Iceweasel instead of Totem? So the likes of youtube etc. will work?

Best regards

BTW: Will the same problem occur in squeeze?

aptitude remove totem-mozilla
aptitude keep-all
aptitude mozilla-plugin-vlc

The 'gnome' package it wants to remove is just a metapackage. You can also just disable the plugin in Iceweasel.
Although I would use mozilla-mplayer instead of totem-mozilla or mozilla-plugin-vlc.
