Mac help anyone?
How do I change the default program that opens a file on a Mac? OS X
I have Avi files and I want to have a program other than Quick Time open them. Where do I change which program opens which file type?"Sometimes life is just what we make it."

Found this one on google so hope it helps
Locate a file that has the extension you want to change (for example, MyLife.AVI)
Right-click (or Control+Click) on the file, and choose Get Info
When the Get Info box appears, go down to the section called "Open With"
Choose the program you want the file to be opened with, in this case whatever media player, and then click "Change All..."
Click "Continue" on the warning box that appears, and that's it. All of your AVI files will now be opened with the new program
