I am trying to view a video in safari and it says there is a plugin missing. The message I get is:

This page has content that requires an Internet plug-in.
This page contains content of “application/x-vlc-plugin” type. You do not have the plug-in required to view this content.

I cannot view this video on Chrome as well. Please let me know what I can do to resolve this.

My guess is that you need the VLC plugin, available on VLC download page.

Actually I had already done that. Just needed to restart the browser. Thanks. – Viraj Nov 23 '11 at 5:29
