    (openwith-mode t)
    (setq openwith-associations
          (quote (("\\.pdf\\'"  "open" (file))

                  ("\\.\\(?:mpe?g\\|avi\\|wmv\\)\\'" "open -a vlc" (file))
                  ;; change .jpg to be able to show inline in .org mode
                  ;;              ("\\.\\(?:jp?g\\|png\\)\\'" "open" (file))
