I guess with the current situation on BeOS media players... it is fine 
to put wildcards in the supported files list of vlc. ;-) As a side 
effect, vlc appears in another part of the list of supporting 
applications when you invoke the "Open With..." menu in BeOS. In BeOS, 
the list is devided into applications that support the specific file 
type directly, applications supporting the super type, and applications 
supporting any file type (like a binary editor). Having vlc in the 
section with general media file support seems appropriate.
