Two ideas:

(1) Reinstall and tick [File type associations] to select all file types:
file type associations
(2) Run VLC and click Tools menu, then Preferences:
Set up associationsClick the [Set up associations] button and then tick the [Select All] box:
Set associations - Select All
If you haven't reinstalled in a while, now would be a good time, as they recently released Version 2.1.1 (on 14-Nov):

You could upgrade and fix your file type associations at the same time. Regards, Joe
