Been trying to get DivX working streaming in FF. VLC plugin supposedly enables that however the plugin never seems to work in FF. Any ideas?

In Mint the MPlayer plugin for firefox is installed by default. So you must remove it for using the VLC plugin. If not it's the MPlayer plugin that Firefox will use. :wink:

Also with a right click in a tab using the MPlayer plugin, you can, I guess, select the media type that you want use with the MPlayer plugin.
