I would like to make VLC my default media player instead of Totem. I assumed I could do this in System > Preferences > Preferred Applications, but there is not option given. Does anyone know how to do this?

One way is to right-click on a media file, click Properties > Open With and select the application you want to use. This will set the application as the default for the file type you selected.

If your using FF in preferences-applications you can change types of media players per type of media for on line viewing as well.
