File associations


Running Redhat 9.x I was trying to get a streaming audio site (live365) to play some tunes. When I hit the play button, a file download box kept popping up. Trying all the various combinations of things, ti still wasn't sorking and I messed up and hat the "Always open with this type of file" and had it associated with .pls type at the time.

How the heck to I undo this? Now it just goes straight to a download dialog. I want it to PLAY, not download the durn thing. "File types and Programs" doesn't seem to do what I need.

What browser are you using? I've found that xine works well for playing some audio streams. Maybe mplayer too.

I am accessing live365 via Mozilla, and I downloaded Realplayer8 for playback since the 365player is windoze only.

That being said, my initial screwup happened when mozilla had kicked up some sort of player window (mozilla player? Beats me!) and it kept asking me what I wanted to do with the .pls file everytime I clicked the play button. As I said before, I totally goofed and told it to open the .pls file with .pls, thus associating it with itself. If I can revert that somehow, I should be OK. Maybe.

Edit->Preferences->Navigator->Helper Applications

Still no luck. Something is screwy and it may have been that way before I messed with it. Lemme try a reinstall of the OS and see ifit fixes things. No big loss, it's a sandbox machine. Appreciate the help tho!

Did you try saving that ".pls" file and reading it? Maybe it contains a URL that you can play with xine or mplayer. If you want to verify your mozilla installation you can do "rpm --verify mozilla"

On my system I unistalled the mozilla rpms and installed the tarball from http://www.mozilla.org
