Default vlc plugin
hi, I'd like to use the vlc plugin inside firefox to view some videos (e.g. apple trailers - there's an older thread with no solution, for an older version of pc-bsd), anyhow in linux there's a:
Quote:
"VLC-plugin-pulse" and "Mozilla-plugin-VLC" packages and install them
3) Install "libavcodec-extra-52" for streaming purposes
(taken from here)
but I understand that in pc-bsd/freebsd its enough to install vlc player and you should get the plugin
1. is that true? (cause it's not the case on my system)
2. if it is true than maybe its because vlc pbi doesn't come with with the plugin in-it? (can't compile it from fresh-ports successfully)

thanks 4 your help

ok, I see no one can answer that.
can at least ask for the VLC pbi to be compiled with fribidi? which is off on freebsd ports by default... (FRIBIDI=off: Bidirectional text via GNU FriBidi)
