Configuring Banshee as default Podcast Player in Firefox


When I click on an RSS feed link for a podcast, it displays a page giving me several options for playing the stream...including "More Applications". I want to use Banshee, so I found the player in /usr/lib/banshee.exe and selected it. However, when I click on the continue button in Firefox, it does not add the stream to Banshee's playlist.

How can I make Banshee my default for RSS links to podcasts?

Where does this program come from. It has a windows exe extension which doesn't make much sense. Also executables would be found in /usr/bin, or /usr/local/bin/ and not /usr/lib/. ( Or are you using cygwin X? )

I use Amarok for podcasts and add the podcasts rss link. Then I don't need to browse to the site.
I'm sure you can do the same for banshee, but I don't think you have actually found it.

I take it back, partially. There is a banshee.exe file in the package. The banshee program is in /usr/bin/banshee.

Code:
rpm -qlp banshee-0.13.1-28.x86_64.rpm
/etc/gconf/schemas/banshee-core.schemas
/etc/gconf/schemas/banshee-interface.schemas
/usr/bin/banshee
...
/usr/lib64/banshee/banshee.exe
/usr/lib64/banshee/banshee.exe.config
