    Lightbulb [SOLVED] Replace Totem with VLC

    Is it possible to replace Totem with VLC including the ability to watch embedded streams from within a web site? And what is the best way of associating files to open with VLC? I don't see the point in having multiple players that all do the same thing or share features. Just want to get rid of the clutter.


    **Update**

    --Installed--
    mozilla-plugin-vlc
    quicktime-utils
    faad
    ffmpeg
    libimlib2
    libswscale1d


    --Removed--
    totem
    totem-gstreamer
    totem-mozilla
    totem-plugins


    So far so good with the exception of streaming Quicktime from the web. Windows streaming is working. Also took the step of designating VLC as my default player.

    I will later experiment by removing any other codecs/plugins directly related to Totem and see if there are any results. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that it may mess with other programs such as K9.

    Code:
    System-->Preferences-->Preferred Applications-->Tab 'Multimedia'-->Command 'vlc'-->Close
