    Select a .avi file and hit command+i.

    In the info dialogue, expand the 'open with' section, select vlc from the drop down menu and hit the 'change all' button.

    i dont have no mac's
    it is quite easy, just do this:

    control click (or right click) an .avi file
    click get info
    under "open with" select VLC
    then click the "change all..." button to have that application open all .avi's
