[vlc-devel] --ignore-config in mozilla plugin

My mozilla plugin plays video very slow and choppy, because the default VLC
settings are apparently not working for my hardware.  Changing settings in the
VLC player doesn't help, because there's hardcoded --ignore-config in line 120
in projects/mozilla/vlcplugin.cpp. The commit in question is this:

	mozilla: Use --ignore-config, we don't want local VLC to interfer with the plugin. Also support exception.

I wouldn't propose to remove --ignore-config unconditionally, apparently there
were reasons for doing so, but I'd like to ask for directions how do I
change preference for the plugin then?
