    can you associate apps / programs with file types?

    Hi there, hope someone might help me with this quick query

    When I try and open a .flv file directly from the file manager (using "File Expert") installed on my nexus,
    I get a message advising me that there is no handler installed on the device
    It does offer the option for "File Expert"to find a handler, but when I explore this option, I just get an error message

    I have MX Player installed on the nexus which plays these file types very nicely

    In windows I would use the open with functionality to link program and file type

    Is there an equivalent or suggested solution where I can choose by default how these or other types of programs open

    thanks in advance

    I use Mobo Player for all video files. Works well and normally when you open a file in the file manager, Mobo will pop up to open it.
