Thank you! i did look in the manual but it was the HUGEST one ive ever seen and i couldnt find this. Also i didnt know why it had changed for me. Now i see that audio files are being handled by several different plugins. i think "plugger" is doing the audio files, even though mplayerplug-in is also listed as handling some of these files. The interface for the mplayer plugin is better. Whats the recommended way for this to be first in the list (that is mplayer plugin works first and it defaults to plugger otherwise)? Thanks again!
