    Click on an MP4 file and then press COMMAND-I. Under the Open With section, select VLC and then click Change All. :)

    Get info on an MP4 file in the Finder and in the open with drop down menu select VLC. Then click the Open all with button (or something like that).

    Why not just trash the VLC .91 then? No reason to keep it around, right?
