Hi Sam,

mozilla-plugin-vlc works fine, but it doesn't seem to be willing to
stream. if i look at a movie like this one , 
i have to wait until the entire movie has been downloaded before it
starts playing.

if instead i look at the source of the page, copy the movie url, and run 
the movie starts almost instantly.

[well, actually it's a not a very good example, does not
seem to have enough bandwidth. these ones work better: ]

cheers, piem
