I did something, installed something, changed something, what i do not know, Everything came out of the stable and extra repos, but all my .mov files won't open. ffmpeg? i uninstalled and reinstalled. ffmpeg is not the testing version but stable 0.10. I also tried to reinstall every movie play that is on this machine by default. Still nothing opens, only when its put into openshot or kdenlive. I can preview and timeline watch. Before reinstalling yet again does anyone have any reason why this has happened, and anything i can try before wiping clean again.

No clue.  My .mov files open automatically in Dragon Player and seem to run fine.

Sorry, I'm a bit tired, i downgraded back to xfce4.8 and this fixed my issue.  For some reason dragon player just showed up out of nowhere and wanted to dominate over everything. Throughout the week or two after this new friend showed up i noticed dragon stopped working all together. I think, not positive, when this took place everything else stopped as well.  Now i have to stretch my top panel back out and forget how to do this. Other than that all seems good.
