Mplayer - inconsistent behaviour
« on: September 19, 2008, 11:35:39 am »
I have a dual boot system (XP and 5.9 Gold) with a shared NTFS partition where I keep some MP3's and WMA files.
When I navigate to one of the MP3 files, using File Manager, and double click, up pops XMMS and the file plays.
But if I do the same with a WMA file, up pops Mplayer, with a 'failed to open file' error. Strangely, if I just start Mplayer and ask it to open that same file, it does so and the file plays.
Any ideas ?
