Okay I have VLC media player, I have it in Firefox and I have downloaded everything I can find for VLC, when I try to stream the video, it only gives me the option to open it with Mozilla, even if I download it. I tried to open it with VLC, but it doesn't show up as an option. FLV never gives me an issue.
I would also like to suggest you use Putlocker and/or Sockshare for filehosting. www.putlocker.com www.sockshare.com I use them when I have to go to 1channel and they load pretty quickly while streaming.
