I just installed the new gnome3 and I can't figure out why I can't select default browser and why VLC is not listed in video players.

I had a problem yesterday trying to get it to recognise Firefox because all it had was Epiphany... Found out after i UNinstalled the firefox4 from AUR and installed Firefox 4 from .... [extra] I believe.... (pacman -S firefox) that's when it showed up. Probably had something to do with the name or some random installation issue, I dunno.
Just a thought. Dunno if it will help your situation at all.

The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.
please create threads in appropriate forums. Gnome3 is still in testing.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
@ The Unabeefer it has to do with the default mime handler. firefox.desktop has the appropriate handlers
Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.
Any idea why gedit tries to open links? There are no handlers in /usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop
Removing ~/.local fixed it.
That did the trick for me as well, thanks for sharing.
1+ year since last post but that worked for me too. I had the same problem and also settings window every time i tried to change a default application (from vlc to mplayer for example) crashed.
Do a pacman -Syu to your brain regularly
