    Default Favorite applications

    Hello,
    There is a menu to set the favorite application.
    Totem is set by defaut for multimedia.
    What should I insert to set vlc ?
    Some website have windows for displaying video. Now, as totem is set per defaut, firefox try to use totem but there are some plugins missing (asf). As I use vlc for the whole rest of video applications, I would like to set for this use as well.
    Thank you in advance

    Hi
    Control Center -> System -> Preferred Applications, in the multimedia
    tab is where it can be set, if it doesn't show in the dropdown you just
    need to give the full path to vlc which I would assume is /usr/bin/vlc.

    Hello,
    The dropdown list effectively doesn't show something else that totem, except "cusmtom".
    And if I select custom, the parameter "Command" shows up.
    Should I really input a path in the field ?
    Thank You
