The 1.1 binaries are development releases and might be unstable. Currently
the libvlc API in 1.1 is in flux and this breaks the webplugins for the
development releases. Once the libvlc API stabilizes a bit more the
webplugins will be updated to take advantage of the revamped libvlc API.
Untill then the webplugins might be unstable.

If you need a stable webplugin then I advice to use the official releases
1.0.x binaries.
