Sounds like mime types. Can you please give the output of:

gvfs-mime --query video/mp4
cat /home/guest/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
cat /usr/share/applications/mimeapps.list

What are you trying to use the "open file" button for?

That button is intended to allow you to browse through your file system to find a .torrent file and open it, which will start the download in transmission. As best as I can tell, it's not intended to open mp4 files or anything other than torrent files. If you're looking to download an mp4, I believe you need to search the web for the mp4 you want, download a .torrent file for it, open that torrent in transmission and it will start the download.

If you're looking to start a new torrent to allow others to download a file from your machine, I believe you need to click on File -> New, then select the "Source File" button to select the file on your machine, and click New to create the .torrent file.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Good am,
While inside the transmission, I tried to open a folder or file that is being downloaded by transmission or finished downloading a folder or a file,. I right click the mouse to use the context menu. One of the option is open folder, when I click the open folder, it doesnt do anything. Well almost. If its the file has an extension of mp4, it opens on Audacious. its being played by Audacious not gnome player.

Anyway, I have already check my porteus v2.1 md5. its correct. :)

In XFCE please try this:

Edit ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list and add this:
[Default Applications]
x-directory/normal=Thunar.desktop


Logout and log back in and try again.
