Actually it is the reverse, previously the whole HTML chunk was
translated: marked as translatable with N_() and translated at runtime
Now it has been split in one untranslatable HTML chunk
(no_password_fmt), and 2 translatable bits: the title "VLC media player"
which is already translated (since it's used in other files), and the 3
