How can I make VLC Player the default player for AVI files. So if I double click on an AVI file, it will open with VLC instead of the Movie Player.

I've tried by going to:

System Settings - Details - Default Applications and select VLC Player instead of Movie Player, for video.

Is there and other way of accomplishing this?

Right clicking the avi file, then Properties, and then Open With. This allows you to change the default program per file type
