Changing file associations and default applications in openSUSE / Gnome

A quickie:

I wanted to change the default application from Banshee/Totem for my media files to VLC ( since I didn’t have proprietary codecs installed, and VLC does). Searched all of YaST/Settings and couldn’t find where to change the default application.

The solution was pretty simple, just right click the file(type), click on Properties,  and Open-With tab

File / Properties / OpenWith

Just choose the default application, or click on Add and select VLC, and you’re done!

File / Properties / Open With / VLC

Simple. Still wish there was a central place from where I could update it though.
