I'm hoping to find a way in which I can automatically open a video into VLC from a browser (likely Firefox). For example I have a video at http://ip/video.mp4. And I'd like to be able to click on the video an automatically open it in VLC (the full program, not as a plugin). I was hoping for something such as VLC://http://ip/video.mp4 but it doesn't work and am having trouble finding whether this is possible or not.
The last question I found which was similar is a few years old now and didn't have the answer I hoped, so was hoping things would be different now.
Thanks for any help all.
