[vlc-devel] Re : vlc mozilla plugin and html content

Thank you for your answer.
It seems really weird to me since for the flash plugin there exists a parameter "wmode" which allows to display the plugin in background and so to add html content above it. So if it is possible to have that for the flash plugin why not for the vlc plugin ?
Is there special features inside Firefox to handle that for the flash player ?

No, yes. In some cases (eg. xv overlay) it'll be next to impossible, or
at least require digging deep into mozilla rendering and thus break the
simple ``this part we do, that part the plugin does'' rendering model.

If there is a specific situation where you want that you could venture
to describe it in more detail.
