I would like to open in the page

http://www.fredmobile.com/resultat/music/album/18007.html

the links starting with the following protocol type

ed2k://

But Opera gives me a popup message saying : The address type is unknown or unsupported.

I think I would need to do something in the mime types... but I'm not an expert with these things.

Note that it works fine with IE, the links open a download in edonkey.

Any idea..?

In Opera 7.11 and older this requires editing the file Opera6.ini. To find the location of this file go to the Help > About Opera menu and look for the "Preferences" path which points to this file.

Exit Opera and open Opera6.ini in a text editor. Under "[User Prefs]", add the following line

TrustedExternalURLProtocols=ed2k
