I just installed ubuntu 6.10. Now when trying to load some video links totem will not support them. I am running Firefox. Can some help point me in the right direction to default to xine when I click on the link?
Did you install the codec pack? 2nd, Xine does not have a Firefox Plugin, you'll most likely need to install Mplayer or Totem and the appropriate plugin. Some files, divx, have been a hassle. Some of them work fine, others not at all.. I've had better luck with Mplayer, but YMMV.

I suspect if you install the the totem and mplayer plugins you'll probably get this fixed. Make sure you follow the instructions to add that FAQ's repositories. They are unofficial, but have been fine for me. Only other issue you might have(although I doubt it), is because 6.10 isn't the latest release, some of those repositories might be closed. Official Ubuntu repos for 6.10 will be open about another yr, unofficial, well, they could have closed yesterday, or be open another 6yrs.. .
