   No: the plugin uses X11 for rendering, but it also requires the
browser to have opened an X11 window for it. The correct way to do an
OS X port is to find out what type of window the browser created, pass
the information to VLC (mozilla/vlcshell.cpp:NPP_SetWindow), and
implement a video output feature for it.
