Mplayer and Nautilus “Open with”

Posted by Arkham on June 19th, 2008

Nautilus “Open with” option and Mplayer don’t seem to behave correctly when the file we want to open contains spaces. The dirty hack to solve it is:

vi /usr/share/applications/mplayer.desktop

And replace “Exec=gmplayer %U” with “Exec=gmplayer %F”
