When you fill in a player command, you must specify the *entire* 
command.  The string you type is not appended to the default player 
command; it's an entirely separate command.  If you want to run the 
default player with some extra options for a specific file type, you'll 
have to copy the default player command and type it into the field 
along with whatever extra options you want.
