I have

Firefox 22
VLC media player 2.0.7
VLC Mozilla Web Plugin 2.0.6

However if I click a link to a video, it still attempts to download it instead of streaming it. It only streams it if I open VLC and

Media Open Network Stream

It appears this is a problem for files with MIME type

application/octet-stream
video/quicktime

I was able to work around this problem by installing Launchy
