    I want to change it so that all my .avi and .mpeg files open with VLC instead of quicktime, because I of course get an error everytime quicktime tries to open an AVI file. I can't find where quicktime is set as my default. :hs:

    just right click whatever type of file you want to associate with a given program. Then choose open with, choose "other", this will open a window and you wil choose what program to associate with the file extension. In the lower left of the window click "Always Open with", and then click open. Now all your .avi or whatever should open with what ever program you have choosen.
