    So I just updated VLC to the latest version but as you can see in the screenshot, my "Open With" list is inaccurate and out of date. Is there anyway to "refresh" the list?

    The command mentioned at macosxhints.com doens't work for 10.5 (seems lsregister has moved)

    This command worked for me


    locate lsregister -kill -r -all local,system,user
