    How to set VLC media player as default media player on Asus windows laptop?

    As of now I have set GOM player as the default media player on my Asus windows laptop. How can I change the default one to VLC media player as most of the video formats can be played fine with this one?

    From the start menu of your system, you have to go for the ‘control panel’ option. From there you have to move on to the ‘pick a category’ option. There you can hit on the option named ‘Add or Remove Programs’. Within the section, ‘Set Program Access and Defaults’ option has to be chosen. Now a ‘Choose a configuration’ box will get displayed on the page. The option labeled‘custom’ needs to be double tapped now. Then you have to go to the ‘Choose a default media player’ areThere you can see all the available media players on your system. From there, you have to choose the VLC media player and save the changes.
