Windows 11 Unable To Associate MP4 Extension

Recently I wanted to associate MP4 extension to be open in VLC Media Player….but I couldn’t. It’s just not possible. VLC sends me to system settings and in system setting I can’t create a new extension. Like what the fuck?

That means I had to for each file click Open With and select VLC from the list. Or start VLC and open it from there.


Section where associations are set

Cannot set file associations in VLC

MP4 extension is missing in the list

Sometimes I just ask - whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?
