    Hello, i have VLC Media player (videolan.org) and it works great. Now i select VLC to handle the .AVI files as default. But it keeps reverting back to quicktime so when i double click it tries to open it in quick time, but fails.

    At the moment i'm just right clicking and doing Open with > VLC

    I want to double click and it open with VLC. Any help or advice is appreciated, Thanks!

    Below sea level
    I assume you tried; Click the file with your right mouse button; open with; other; click vlc and check the box "always open with this program" (or something like that, cause I'm translating from dutch). Did you do it like that?

    right-click any .avi file then click on "Get Info" , then when the tab opens up displaying info on the movie, go down to where it says "Open with:" then change it to VLC, then click the button directly below that which says "Change All..." then confirm. Now all .avi files will open automatically with VLC
