Opening Ogg Vorbis v. Ogg Theora in GNOME

Nautilus has been recently been giving me some problems after I source-installed mplayer and xine.

I use SuSE Linux 10.1 with GNOME 2.12.

I'm trying to open an OGG music (Vorbis) file which has a .ogg extension using my default Beep Media Player, but I get this error in a nautilus error window:

The filename "song.ogg" indicates that this file is of type "Ogg Theora video". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "Ogg Vorbis audio". If you open this file, the file might present a security risk to your system.

Do not open the file unless you created the file yourself, or received the file from a trusted source. To open the file, rename the file to the correct extension for "Ogg Vorbis audio", then open the file normally. Alternatively, use the Open With menu to choose a specific application for the file.
Xine is my default player for my Ogg Theora videos, also .ogg extension. They open and play perfectly.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Well, after churning my brain one full revolution I found a solution.

The default media player for all .ogg files (audio and video) should be Totem, because it plays Vorbis and Theora.


audio, gnome, ogg, opening, video
