    Install Candy Bar and then use the Application section of that to change it? Find VLC in the list, and then drag and drop.

    EDIT: Just out of interest, what icon are you using?

    Before you install any software just get info (cmd-i) on the app. Check 'Ownership & Permissions'. Make sure this is set to 'Read & Write'. If it is read only or no access you will not be able to change the icon.

    Gp
