Question VLC Mozilla Plugin

In the past, I've used VLC's mozilla plugin to listen to Sirius Satellite radio and all has worked well and without having to tweak anything. After doing a fresh install (Kubuntu Edgy), the plugin no longer works. I get no error message, it just..... doesn't stream. I had to install MPlayer and use its plugin to be able to listen, when in the past, MPlayer didn't quite work right for me. What, they switched? *chuckles*

I really like VLC and hate having to install a whole other media player just to use it's mozilla plugin. I just about had every VLC related package installed trying to get it to work, but nada. Perhaps I'm missing a package I didn't realize I installed last time around?

I have installed:

vlc-plugin-alsa (just in case, even though it's a dummy package)

In the past, I believe these were all I needed. Was there an update snuck in the last few days that maybe broke something? I just don't get it, it worked last week.

Maybe you simply need to adjust the setting, like chose different codecs or so? (Settings > Preferences)

Well, I futzed about with various codec settings and whatnot, still nothing. I never had to configure anything to get it to run, in the past.. it just worked. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
