macos – Mac cannot preview SRT files in Finder or QuickLook view (other Mac can view file without opening)

Does anyone have any idea why this might have happened? I suspect it has something to do with installing VLC, but I could be wrong. Is there any way I can fix this?

Setting Text Edit to open all SRT files and even AppCleaning VLC from the machine didn’t fix the issue. Nor did restarting the Mac after doing these things.
