How do I prevent iTunes from opening when double-clicking mp4-files?
I only found a way (open with - other...) to prevent certain files from opening. I rather want QuickTime to open when double clicking on mp4 files.

    Open a Finder window with an MP4 file.
    Right click - open with.
    Select Other...
    In the window, tick *Always Open With* and select QuickTime Player.
