Can't launch VLC for MP4 files recently
When browsing video files on a network share, I used to be able to tap them and then choose VLC from the "open with" list and stream them over the network.
Recently, however, something has changed. When I try to view MP4 files I don't get the option to view them in VLC any more. When I tested with different video file types, I found that WMV files launch in VLC without the list being offered, AVI files show the list including VLC and a couple other options, but MP4 and MKV files only offer "Photos" and a streaming option built into Solid that seems to be for casting to a Chromecast or something. No option for VLC or any other video players I have installed.
It doesn't look like VLC has been updated in almost a year, so I wonder if the change is in Solid Explorer or my own configuration? I didn't see anything in the Solid, VLC, or system settings that seemed relevant though.
