Setting XMMS to play from Konqueror

I'm using XMMS ... also called "audio player" in the menu and I want to be able to double click on a song from the Konqueror file manager and have the song play. It doesn't want to cooperate!

Instead it brings up XMMS with my playlist installed, plays the last song that I played there and the one I wanted to play is no where to be seen.

Any ideas how I can get Konqueror to play it on a double click without bringing up the playlist?

Thank you!!

I'm not sure if you can use xmms directly, but the mplayer-plugin should work for konqueror and should play audio files directly in konqueror.

Ok. I figured it out and thought I would post it for anyone who was wondering the same thing.

What I was doing was editing the file type in Konqueror .... edit > edit file type ... adding "Audio Player" and moving it to the top of the list. This made XMMS (Which is Audio Player in the menu) the default app for MP3's. Click on a MP3 file and XMMS would come up. So far so good.

The problem was that it used the default command line for Audio Player which was "-e %F"

This is what caused XMMS to open and choose the next song in the list instead of just playing the song I clicked. When I removed the switch it started playing only the song I selected just like I wanted.

Life is good.
