I am right when I understand this is "just" a "git trick" and it should not
change much?


Will there be a separate installer for plugin only?
Will the VLC installer still install the plugin?

What about the nightly build... will there be separate compile?

How will the release number mix and match between player and plugin and will
the LibVLC version be indicate?
Are there expected problem that installation of one or the other will
disturb the installation of the other if both do not rely on the same
version of LibVLC? (If the answer seems to platform dependant... I am mostly
interested into Windows version and maybe IE plugin).

We have invested a lot of time testing the vlc plugin for particular use
case and to verify it's stability. However when facing bug or problem we
were relying on the vlc player to gather logs and such. Does this change
mean that in the futur we could have different behaviour in the player and
the plugin.

This seems a bit odd to me as the page "
http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:WebPlugin" contain many (supported in
vlc version >= 1.1.0). This did made me believe that there was a lot of work
on the plugin side of VLC. Obviously I was wrong.

PS: Maybe HTML5 will sign the end of video plugin... could this be true?
