Hi,

Im having trouble setting VLC as the default player for mp4(h.264) videos. I did the Open With->VLC and select "Always use this program", but after that it just goes right back to itunes. Any ideas on making a permanent change for mp4s opening with VLC?

Just a quick check...

When you go to Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types, what program is associated with the .mp4 extension?

.mp4s are associated with VLC, but still have the itunes icon and play with itunes when double clicked.

ok, another question...

Which was installed later, itunes or vlc?

if itunes, try uninstalling vlc and installing again. This could force itunes to give .mp4 back to vlc.

if vlc was installed later, you're sure you told vlc to take over .mp4 associations? we'll try more in a bit if needed.

lemme know.
