I thought he was taking about clicking on a video file icon either
on the Desktop or in the gnome file browser.
And I agree, changing the System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications
to change the multimedia handler did not work for me either.
After I changed it to /usr/bin/smplayer,
right-Clicking on a video file icon on desktop brings
up the menu that has the default "totem: player - albeit,
I still have the option to "open with" some other app.
