I canīt play videos from a Dutch video site (from national television)
I have installed the w32codecs and the vlc player.
I get the message that a plug-in is missing:

(Microsoft Media Server (MMS) protocol-source.

However I just figured out how to start it manually.

The video area shows a film icon. After clicking a stand alone vlc player appears.

So, How can I get rid of the missing plug-in message?
How can I get VLC functioning within Firefox?
