First right click on the file you want VLC media player to read and choose "open with." Then choose from a list of programs that can be used to open the file such as VLC media player. Then check the box near the bottom that says "Always use this program to open this type of file

This will change the *Windows* default player for that filetype. It will not change the *BitComet* player at all. To change the player that BitComet uses, requires that you change BitComet's settings, not Windows'.

I am still confused here. To change the default Bitcomet player options>advanced

and what about the "Key"? Just enter the path to the new player??

if you installed VLCplayer to its default installer specified directory then on BitComet just go to Tools-->Options-->Advanced and in the "ui.preview_program_path" (@ the lowest) type in the directory path of your VLCplayer OR copy and paste this --> C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe
