How do I change my default media player??

Usually from within the media player you want to use in options.

if its to set a certain media file type to open when you double click etc
try from explorer
tools>folder options>file types and change it to vlc
similar with autoplay from cd dvd rightclick drive properties >autoplay>drop down menu pick media type and select vlc
or try start> set program access and defaults
choose media player but vlc doesnt appear there on my pc.

You could just remove VLC and then download it again,

It will then ask you if you want VLC as your defalut player,

None of that's worked.

Re-installing doesn't give the option to use as default.

Any other ideas?

Go to start and at the top of the menu choose set program access and defaults.Choose custom and it will list all your media players and let you choose which one you want as your default.
