That would be better if that happened, but it hands off to Helix
instead. I don't want to allow Helix, so I just may as well rpm -e the
#^# #$% and be rid of it so that mplayer can do the job. Like Claude, I
have mplayer configured everywhere that helix lived and is supposed to
be started first. I may have to remove all other apps as potential
candidates... just mplayer alone. Ric
