I don't know why but I have installed everything Xine and Xine-related and play video files using it until my heart is content I can't make it the default player for a Fedora 16 machine using Gnome3 .
I right-click a file and because I have added xine.desktop to all the video extensions in both /usr/share files I can open with the player but ....
If I go to the files properties and try and change the 'Open With' properties for the file type Xine isn't anywhere to be found.
I can make VLC the player, I can make gXine the player, I can use that awful Totem but under no circumstances can I see xine in the drop down list of available applications for .avi or .mp4 files (or anything video related)
What's my next step?
