Author Topic: Tweaking Opera for .mov  (Read 1407 times)

Opera is trying to play .mov movies with gxine which then claims it cannot find
the demuxer and stream format not recognised. Totem and vlc will play this format
.mov, however, Opera does not give the option to play with either of them.

I am not able to tweak Opera so it will play .mov with either totem or vlc.

Anyone to guide me how to do it?

Thanks & regards

Look in Tools > Preferences > Advanced Tab > Downloads > Type "mov" the search field > highlight the line(s) > click the Edit button.

Thanks! I had a hard time. Opera would not take/register even as sudo, add or edit, and would
keep on opening a page showing the downloaded .mov file in its entirety. Only when I edited
directly operaprefs.ini could I finally tweak it to now open with vlc.

Season Greetings
