Is there a way I can change which app will launch upon Voice action? For example when I say "Listen to Pink Floyd", it currently opens Last.fm app which is more or less useless for me since Last.fm doesn't have streaming in my location.

Can I configure it to open, say, Winamp instead of Last.fm? If yes, how?

I believe if you uninstall the Last.fm app, then use the Voice Action "Listen to..", a pop up should show asking which of the default players listed here, will show up and be used.

If however, you'd prefer the default in-built player to play, use Listen To or the app Choice Dialer, available in both free and paid versions in the market.

If I choose to uninstall last.fm, my scrobbles will not be recorded - I don't want that. BTW - why did you mark the answer as CW ? –  Sathya Jan 2 '11 at 7:49
    
OK, You didn't mention that Last.fm was a requirement. BTW, Meridian Player supports scrobbling (with help from scrobbledroid) if you want to take a look at it. Community Wiki because I felt this question could benefit from other users editing it (even if they didn't have sufficient editing privileges). –  Sparx Jan 2 '11 at 8:58
    
Just had a look-see and Winamp seems to support scrobbling too, via the official Last.fm app. –  Sparx Jan 2 '11 at 9:09
    
@Sparx sorry I should've mentioned it explicitly in the question. Winamp supports scrobbling, but requires the last.fm app which results in the question I posed. –  Sathya Jan 3 '11 at 14:23
    
Have you tried the apps I mentioned? –  Sparx Jan 3 '11 at 14:36

You can clear the preferred program from "Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Last.FM > Clear defaults"

Then the next time you launch the Voice Action, you'd be prompted with a list of players, click on the "Make default" then on your new preferred application.

Clear defaults is disabled, says No defaults set –  Sathya Jan 2 '11 at 8:32
