forcing file associations ? Mplayer


I have been using Mplayer on my SuSu 9.0 with great success, it plays almost everything including WMA audio.


I would like to associate files with the WMA extension to Mplayer but I don't get this option in the OPEN WITH dialog.

Is there any way to do this ?


I have read some comments in this forum saying that Linux is not so good for multimedia, you really have to try Mplayer !

Thanks

It's SuSE, not SuSu ...

If you're using KDE in SuSE open your KControlCenter,
KDE Components -> File associations


Cheers,
