How can I change default media player (for web browser)?

Is there a way to set or change the default media player (especially for specific file types or web browsing)?

I have two media players on my phone (MoboPlayer and Seaman Player). When I visit the Caltrans website and click on a link to stream live traffic-cam video (in ASX format) the browser launches the MoboPlayer which is not capable of playing the ASX format. I want it to launch the Seaman Player, which (supposedly) is capable of playing ASX files.

I have tried going into setting/Applications/Manage Applications, and then tried to clear the defaults for MoboPlayer, but no defaults are set.
