Open local files with predefined app in Mac

I´m developing a little app based on CSS3 and HTML for my own use that contains all my movies collection. When I press the movie poster, it opens the movie file using a regular <a> link code.
The problem is that Firefox (or any other browser) only lets me save the file (it will download the movie that I already have in my HD), as you can see in the following image.
I´m wondering if it´s possíble to run apps or open files automatically with an app installed (in this case with VLC) with HTML or any additional script.
I´ve realized that iTunes just do that when we choose "view it in iTunes". See here.
Thanks in advance.
