Why dose VLC player open when I open Documents


Hello fellow members:

I have Ubuntu 10.10. I have installed VLC video player. When I go to places, and then hit Documents, or(music, pictures, downloads). It will open the VLC player with a pop up error.

Error Message when I hit Documents:
No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.


Error Message when I hit pictures:
No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

No error message when I hit music:
But it open's up the same song all the time.

No error message when I hit video:
I just opens up like it's suppose to!

I was trying to make it my default player. All I did was right mouse click on my folders, but I remember selecting anything!

When I un-install VLC player everything works fine. Please help if you can, and thank you for your time!

It sounds as if the file associations are missed up.

One way to check:
  1. Highlight a file, say a document.
  2. Right-click. If the top choice on the menu is "Open with VLC," VLC is associated with that file type (extension).

Next:
  1. On the right click menu, click "Open with."
  2. In the pop up that appears, select "Other Application."
  3. Select the desired application and make sure the make sure the "Remember this application . . ." box is checked, then
  4. Click "Open."

It was exactly that! I can't believe it was that simple. This problem was bugging me for a while now.
I was even thinking about reinstalling Ubuntu and all of my files!

Thank You very much I really do appreciated!
