http://ubuntuforums.org – Using Ubuntu 12.04.1 i set SMPlayer as default movie player in my system settings and i want movie files to open with SMPlayer whenever i try double-click on them but doesnt work. The system still recognises standard Mplayer as default. I also set SMPlayer to open movie files from "open with another app" menu but this doesnt work either. I uninstalled and reinstalled Mplayer and SMPlayer many times with no luck. Am i doing something wrong? I know SMPlayer is a frontend for Mplayer but i want to use SMplayer as default. (Hardware)
