these are just minor things but I do wish to cleanup.
first up I installed ffmpeg, video was stuttering in some AVIs and MKVs (which turns out I just had to disable 3d <_< )
the way I played the files was rightclick, open with then typed in ffplay. It playes, still stuttered. Uninstalled but the word "ffplay" was still in the Open With
The other, flash had the habit of making the flash window, like on youtube, go all white if I switched windows often. I thought it was a firefox thing and since I wanted Chrome... anywho, didn't work at all. I uninstalled both windows firefox (since the site didn't allow me to download natively in mint) and chrome. However, both programs are still in my wine list, even after I uninstalled them
and about mounting.
I'm tinkering this one right now with the help of Fred
