Their is no default_application_id for avi files. Xine is able to play avi
files. I have a proposed patch. This should go to gnome bugzilla also.

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem? 

(This a batch message is being sent to all my bugs that haven't changed in a year)
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2005-05-13 05:10:57 EDT
This doesn't apply anymore, as gnome-mime-data isn't being used actively in
GNOME 2.6 and above. Closing, as Totem is now the default handler for those.
