    hi there. this is a very noob question so take it easy. i want to open all my .avi files with vlc and i always check the 'open with this app' option but it just work for the file i opened, the other avi files keep being opened with quicktime. how can i do this?

    Control-click on the file, select "Get Info."

    From here you can select the application (under "Open With"). Once you have chosen the application, click the "Change All" button underneath your selection. It will ask you if you want to change the application for all these types of files. Click yes and away you go.

    the icon will stay the same, but it will just open in vlc instead.
