Making VLC my default player?
 
New to mac's and I'm trying to figure out how to change my default player for everything to VLC from QT? I'm running OS X Snow Leopard if it matters. Mainly doing this because I've used VLC with windows and I'm having trouble with flip4mac working with some WMP files.

Thanks for the help.

"Get Info" on the file you want to play with VLC, go down to the "Open With" section and select VLC from the menu. Click "Change All" to have all files of that type open with VLC.

Thank you I've been going crazy trying to figure that out.

I do not see the prompts you suggest.

"Get Info" on the file you want to play with VLC, --where is that? How do I get there?

"go down to the "Open With" section and select VLC from the menu. --I don't see this.

Click "Change All" to have all files of that type open with VLC. --Nor this.

Find the file you want to play in VLC. Whichever file in Finder you want to play in VLC, doesn't matter which one, any of them will do it. Right-click on that file and select Get Info

This is part of the Get Info screen that will pop up.

Also part of the Get Info screen.

The "Open With" section of the Get Info window may not have any programs showing for you to change to. If that's the case click the small triangle next to "Open With". This will expand that area of the box and show a drop down menu to choose a new program.
