I think it is kind of conventional for VRT files to have the extension .ovf if they are for vector data, and .ovr if they are for raster data.
The file type filter in browse dialogues for things such as "add vector layer" and "add raster layer" allow you to filter for VRT files, but they only recognise files with the extension .vrt
It might be good if they also recognised the extensions .ovf and .ovr

Hello, bug triage...

The implementation is quite easy: we have to add the extensions into:
- src/providers/ogr/qgsogrprovider.cpp for vector VRT.
- src/providers/gdal/qgsgdalprovider.cpp for raster VRT.
