I could not find something in the archive, so I ask now: I'm looking for the command used for video playback. I want to set 3gp videos to be opened by default via the gallery video playback (something like xdg-mime default jolla-gallery-playback.desktop "video/3gp"). Currently there is no default applikation for 3gp. So, when I receiving such video via Mitäkuuluu, it could not be played by simply tapping on it, as it is with mp4 for example.

I found that "xdg-mime query filetype some-video.mp4" is named mimetype "video/mp4". But "xdg-mime query default video/mp4" shows, that there is no default applikation set for mp4 videos, since playing mp4 videos directly from Mitakuuluu works fine nevertheless. So playing the videos is apparently not executed via xdg-open... How to get it to work then?
