Shouldn't it be sufficient to go to the preference menu, select "Show
all settings", then choose Audio/Output modules/JACK and say "connect to
clients matching" with or without "automatically connect to writable

Haven't tried it, but if you enter something like "system:play*", it
might do the trick.

BTW: Unless you really need to separate the vlc outputs from all other
system outputs, I recommend using the pulseaudio audio plugin instead
and then use pulseaudio-module-jack to bridge to jackd. This way, your
connections are always on, no need to mess with qjackctl at all. ;)
