    How Do I make VLC the default Flash Player?
    Greetings.....

    .....and a happy chocolate holiday

    I have a number of .flv files on my machine which have a Windows Player as the default. (These files were copied over from a Gatesmobile...)

    Now I can right click and select 'Open With... for example, VLC, but it's a bit tiresome, and all the extra effort is wearing me out.

    How do I make VLC the default, so that a double click will do the trick?

    Cheers Mitcherooney (I wish I'd chosen a shorter name...)

    Use Get info to view the properties. Under "Open with" - select the Flash player and hit change all.

    Thanks to Rohan and Chilbear for your quick replies. That's solved that problem. Bit by bit I'm getting the hang of it. Cheers M
