Re: More Audio/Video: VLC

I chose "browse" but VLC wasn't there! Will look at this again later!
Thanks!

Hi,

If VLC isn't in the list, click "choose another program" or
"browse", depending on your version of Windows, and find the executable for
VLC. This will add it to the list and you can then select it and check the
box to use this program in future.
HTH,
Aman

Hello Aman: Well at least what you suggested was easy enough to follow!
Unfortunately it won't work as VLC isn't in the list! All I know is, I used
to hit my little shortcut on my desk top to this video and it would come
right up in VLC! But not anymore! For whatever reason, Winamp comes up
(and I don't have the video) just audio! So then I went into Winamp's
"preferences" I unchecked "MP4. So now it insists in coming up in Windows
Media...which isn't what I want! But thanks for your help so far!

Hi,

If I may ask, why not shift+f10 on the video, select and enter on
"open with", then select and enter on "choose default program", then select
VLC and check the box that says "always open this file type with this
program"? This will open all mp4 files with VLC in future. If you only want
this particular video to open with VLC, and want other MP4 files to open
with something else, this should be possible but is a bit more unusual. Let
me know and I'll write up a set of instructions which might work to open a
single file with VLC.
HTH,
Aman

Hello again list: Can someone please tell me where I go in VLC to locate
file association types? Am still trying to get my video to play in VLC.but
having no luck! So far, I have gone into Winamp and unchecked MP4; result:
my video will now play in Windows Media.not what I want! I find nothing in
VLC that tells me "file associations" as you find in Winamp! But maybe it
is that I don't know where to look or how to get there! So help would be
much appreciated!
