I went through the same thing a while back, and I never could get it to work. IIRC, in browsing the VLC forums and everywhere else I could google, I found that I wasn't alone. It appears to be a very under-developed plug-in. As good as VLC is, the development, misguidedly and unfortunately for us, appears to favour the windows platform. Nevertheless, the mplayer plugin works for pretty well all media files.
