mplayer default movie player (not in firefox)


there are plenty of treats which describe how to make mplayer your default movie player in firefox.

However, how do I make mplayer my default movie player on my box?

I want mplayer to start automatically if I insert a movie dvd/cd.

This thread has been read by 59 members (so far).
But you have NO replies.
You might be wondering why this is . . . . . . . . . ?

You might like to re-read your post, imagining that you are someone on the other side of the world from where you are now (wherever that is), who knows NOTHING about you, your "box" or your choice of operating system.

How much sense do you think your post makes to such a person?

Have you asked a question that is answerable?

I don't think you have you read this: but you should do.

Please don't get all angry, I am only trying to help you help yourself.

Homework with search engines first; experiments second; questions, carefully composed last of all.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I'll come back later with a more detailed treat.
