Hi, my daughters Laptop [aptosid] starts a video file (with vlc) any time she opens a folder or an application window (e.g. konqueror).
I do not use any autostart features and as far as I can tell there is no system notification associated with the media player.
After removing the video in question, the problem persists and another video is played. Renaming the folder with the music videos did not help.
Where is the setting to control this.
She says it started after having watched a movie-DVD (probably with vlc).

Try looking in system settings -> file associations -> inode -> directory

What is the application preference order ?

Thanks piper.
I will have to talk to my daughter first. She is far away without internet and may be able to call on the phone once a day. So I can not check immediately.

Ok, understood

konq or dolphin (whichever one she uses) should be at the top, if not it can be moved up
