Interesting.  I had to do this in gnome too. When I selected gnome 
mplayer under the 'open with' tab (under the permissions menu when you 
right click on the actual file) it finally set it for all the other 
files of that type.  

Is this a bug?  Or is the preferred applications menu only used for 
opening dvds and cd or something?
