    [solved] Opening folders starts Movie Player

    When I try open my Home/Desktop/Documents/Music folders my Movie Player starts and I get a Gstreamer error message. I only want to start Nautilus!

    I am on Maverick now and I had a similar problem (except with Rhythmbox) when I was on Lucid.

    Any hints?

    My System:

    Ubuntu 10.10
    GNOME 2.32.0 (Ubuntu 2010-09-27)
    Kernal Linux 2.6.35-25-generic
    Platform: i686
    CPU: AMD 64x2 5200
    Memory: 2GB

    Sounds like you're in a similar situation as the one outlined in this topic: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1699253

    The solution is inside.

    Thanks for your prompt reply, that fix did the trick. I have been trying out Tribler, I might give it the flick.

    Thanks

    Cool Re: Opening folders starts Movie Player

    Ops, I spoke too soon. Movie Player no longer starts when I select folders but it does start up when I reboot, with the message "Gstreamer encountered a general stream error"

    Check the other entries in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list for anything else that looks out of the ordinary.

    Nothing odd in this:

    x-content/audio-player=rhythmbox.desktop;
    x-content/audio-cdda=rhythmbox.desktop;
    audio/x-aiff=rhythmbox-device.desktop;

    Should also have
    Code:
    inode/directory=nautilus-browser.desktop;
    to get files opening nautilus.

    Good luck

    I'm sure this makes sense to someone but when I uninstall Movie Player that line of code pops in as such:

    [Added Associations]
    x-content/audio-player=rhythmbox.desktop;
    x-content/audio-cdda=rhythmbox.desktop;
    audio/x-aiff=rhythmbox-device.desktop;
    inode/directory=nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;
