How to associate flv files to kmplayer in kde?


Running Debian etch with kde.

How do I associate file types with programs.

I am trying now to associate flv's to kmplayer, since it is the only player that I can get to play them.

I have tried vlc and mplayer...but kmplayer seems to be the only one I can get to work properly.


Thank
Fordwrench

Thanks but I figured it out......

Using Downloadhelper with Firefox I end up with .flv files.

On this box MPlayer and VLC plays them fine. I don't even have
gmplayer installed, so can't comment on that. However, I can
change those file extensions to .wmv and play them, also.

Perhaps showing you output will help:

I'm using Slackware-12.1, custom 2.6.26 kernel, KDE 3.5.9, MPlayer 1.0rc2
and VLC 0.8.6h. Hope this helps ... try it via CLI, and if you have a
problem, at least you'll have some output to show what is wrong. You
might not have ffmpeg installed to play the flash video.
