Enabling DVDs to open with VLC by default.

Hey all,

I'm wondering if anyone knows which specific user or shared preference file would be the one to capture this setting? We're looking to make all out student-facing computers open with VLC as air playing via the DVD app seems broken.

I used Composer to capture a snapshot of new and modified changes after telling VLC to be the default, but it looks like a number of things were changed in various folders (Library, private, User library -- specifically User prefs, which is where I assume the .plist was made/modified.)

Anyone have any success with this?

Thanks!
