helm, when finding a file,
C-c C-x would prompt for open with external program option. Is there a way to set a default program, say,
.mov file. Then I can just press
Enter to open it.
I found the answer by pressing C-u C-c C-x when running C-x C-f, which was rebind to
(setq helm-external-programs-associations (quote (("rmvb" . "smplayer") ("mp4" . "smplayer"))))
This set helm to open files using designated programs. In this case, open .rmvb and .mp4 file using smplayer.
(setq large-file-warning-threshold 500000000)
Set the warning threshold to 500 MB, which will get ride of
File abc.mp4 is large (330.2M), really open? (y or n) y annoying message. (Courtesy of @Nsukami _)
I hope this might be helpful to other new helm user.
