I'm trying to play an .mp4 video file in vlc through Terminal in Mac OS X 10.6.4. When I enter the command, VLC starts but doesn't do anything, and the file starts playing in QuickTime Player, the default video player.
I want the file to open in vlc not QuickTime Player, but I don't want to have to configure vlc as the default video player. Which extra switches does this command need to play video files?
Here's the Terminal command I'm using:
open /Users/sandy/Documents/vlc/VlC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC /Users/sandy/videoFiles/myVideo.mp4
