View Full Version : [ubuntu] Open videos with mplayer in terminal

July 1st, 2009, 12:21 PM
I like using mplayr from my terminal. Normally I've to cd to the directory with the video and then type mplayer <video name> in the terminal. What I want to do is the video should open with mplayer in the terminal when I double click on it. How can I achieve that ?
Thanks in advance

try setting the command for opening the file to

xterm -e mplayer or modify accordingly for whichever terminal emulator you use
