This assumes you are using Gnome
  1. right click on the file icon
  2. select "properties" from the menu
  3. Select the Open With tab
  4. select the player you want as the default
  5. press the Make Default button

^ Slacko puppy doesn't come with Gnome. Though the suggestion you mentioned should work.
