For me, I click on one of the two little icons. One is for 'ASX 
streaming' and the other is for 'Direct Download'. What I had to do was 
go into Firefox, Tools->Options, select the Applications tab and edit 
the ASX file association to use my vlc.exe player. I had to do this 
despite trying to check the box that tells Firefox to 'always open like 
this'. That seems to be ignored and the Tools->Options was the only way 
I got it to work properly. (Under Firefox 3.5 on Win 7).
