since opus is supported, xdg-open also should support it.

until this is implemented officially, does anybody know how to fix that manually?

update: xdg-open still doesnt support opus in SFOSv2.0.2.51

xdg-open has been upgraded to 1.1.1 in Mer; this fixes some things, but it is not yet available on the phone.

See for more info; associating the file extention manually should work fine after applying the fix mentioned here.

xdg-mime query filetype audiofile.opus

gives the mime type application/ogg which is not included in /usr/share/applications/jolla-mediaplayer-openfile.desktop. So the easiest fix would be to this mime type to the .desktop file.

Deos the jolla media player support ogg files? I'd suppose so, but I never tried it so I cant say for sure :)

@tortoisedoc xdg-open opens ogg files with media player and media player is able to play ogg/vorbis. media player can also play ogg/opus and opus/opus files. (only xdg-open doesnt work)
