From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
When browsing through a dir full of movies in Nautilus, I tried to open a .avi
file, but instead of xine coming up and playing it, I got a message saying there
is no viewer capable of viewing this file.

If xine in installed, it should be set-up to handle .avi .asf ect from gnome.

Note:  I could manually opent he file with xine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to folder have as a .avi file
2.try to open it

Actual Results:  Get a error saying there is no veiwer capable of opening the file.

Expected Results:  xine should have been used to open the file
