Xine - again

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?

I don't use fedora 16 but on 14 I right click on the file and click on "open with other application" then "use custom command" type xine and make sure the "make this default for this kind of file" box is ticked

That's what I used to do.
Now I can't.

I don't know if it's a Fedora thing or a Gnome 3 thing but it's quite annoying
maybe it's a case that users of Gnome 3 shouldn't be allowed too much control over stuff and just let the experts decide what's the best thing to use

Anyway I can now report that it's Gnome3 providing me with this delightful interlude.
I really don't know why people complain so much about it.
In order to create the file associations I wanted for my PC I used the KDE system settings tool.
