Your Plastic Pal Who's Fun To Be With...

This evening I put today's charity shop bargain CD into my iBook. All I wanted to do was play some music.

However, Apple recently rolled out the latest iTunes update, so the actual procedure goes something like this...

iTunes opens.
iTunes shows me a load of screens related to web sites that don't interest me.
I press the "play" button, thinking in my naiveté that it will play the bloody CD. No - it starts playing a tutorial on how to use [expletive deleted] iTunes.
Exit that.
Finally I get a list of tracks on the CD, and I actually get to hear Glass's "Songs From Liquid Days," which is not at all bad although the lyrics are just a little OTT.

Is there any way I can get VLC media player to be my default DVD player?
