    Undoing my actions

    MY FIRST THREAD-------

    Hi guys, there is a question I need to ask everyone. I wanted to watch a movie, so I put it on to my laptop (Ubuntu was already installed) so I can watch it. a screen popped up and it said to pick which software I need to use. I There were 2 options I trusted:

    Movie Player
    VLC Media Player

    I chose media player 'cause I use it very often. when I picked that one, there was a check box that said "Always perform this action" so I clicked on it. When I pressed okay, the media player opened up. One big problem though, the movie wasn't working, so I wanted to see if opening it up with movie player works. But I already chose "always perform this action". I also remembered that the movie had a menu in it (that had Play, Special Features, Scene Sections, etc). Here are my questions:

    Is there any way to change my option to Movie Player?
    Is there a way to watch a movie using VLC media player?

    Thanks!!!

    Right-click the file, and use "open with other application", select Totem/Movie Player, and check the "Always perform this action" box.

    There is no dvd file. All it says is DVD on the launcher. and when I click on it, it opens up a window with audio or video files. No DVD file.

    1. Click the Applications icon in the launcher.
    2. From the Applications drop-down (upper right corner), select Themes & Tweaks.
    3. From the Installed section, click the Show More Results link (see Figure 1).
    4. Scroll down and click the Preferred Applications.
