how do i change default media player

Hello, I am using gnome on 9.2 and want to change my default media from sound recorder to xmms because i keep on getting "could not set caps" message. Could someone either help with the message - or to change the default media player.

Right click on one of the media files->edit file type (I use kde but I think it is the same for gnome) Under the general tab there is a window called application preference order. This is where you set the applications to play your files. The one at the top is the default.

sorry for the stupid question - I thought it would be harder.
Cheers for the answer though...
