I have VLC & Elmedia players. I want to use Elmedia as a default player, but VLC is set as default for all extensions, and I can't change it.

If I choose "Always open with" for some media file, VLC still stays default for this extension.

How to fix it? macOS Catalina.


Right-click (Control click) on the type of file you want to always open with Elmedia. Click 'Get Info'.

In the 'Open With' section, select Elmedia from the drop-down menu. To apply this change to all files of this type, click the 'Change All' button. Repeat with any other file types as desired/when they come up

  • Thanks, that worked.
