Windows 7: FireFox & VLC Plugin not playing video/x-msvideo

FireFox & VLC Plugin not playing video/x-msvideo

Hello!

I used to play video/x-msvideo with the quicktime plugin but I did a fresh install and I finally got rid of Quicktime (needed for iPhone with iTunes).

I have installed VLC with the Mozilla Plugin trusting that it would play since I <3 VLC.

But the following Video didn't: Transformers 2: revenge of the fallen spoof (2009) - Stagevu: Your View

I don't know if it's my problem or the sites problem but it only shows the VLC Logo and doesn't do anything else.

I don't like heavy packages or big packages that polute my system so I refuse to install DIVX codec junk.

Does anyone have a way to fix this or does anyone know a lightweight DIVX alternative?

Kind regards,
Vincent

While I can't answer the two questions you posed, why not download said video and use VLC to view it afterwards, as I just did?

I still have quicktime installed, by Corel, and the plugin, when toggled on, did not help me view said video online. I get the same symptom as you described. I don't have any codecs pack installed, just VLC and whatever it is capable of playing.

I have installed DIVX on a Virtual Machine to test it out and it played online.
The video I showed was just an example not all videos can be downloaded.
