    Default Help loading files in Chrome! Why does QuickTime rule the world?

    I am running a MBP and have an issue getting VLC Web Plugin extension to take over for Quicktime in Chrome.

    I installed both VLC and the VLC Web Plugin from:

    VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Mac OS X

    However, whenever I load up a video in Chrome, it defaults to Quicktime.

    There is no VLC Web Plugin in the extensions menu under preferences. Not sure where else to look to set default handling of media files in Chrome.

    Thanks for your help!

    QT rules your world, because your on an MBP and QT is an Apple Product.

    On the PC platform, when Chrome plays a local video it's Chrome that is actually doing it, no external plugins. I am not sure that Chrome can cast video that requires 3rd party plugins.

    So, perhaps there is a setting in the mac somewhere that you can change the default handling of certain video files? I changed the 'open with' and made it always be with VLC player. The icons all changed, and I think the default is VLC player, but Chrome still uses QT.
