This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

Official continuation

"VLC context menu" development will be continued here in this place and there are plans for further enhancements (other than version bumps and additional file name extensions). However I am happy to see enthusiastic users refining the addon. Feuerluchs, if you are interested in contributing to the original version, please contact me (email address in the right hand side bar). The automatic version bump to FF9 is supposed to happen this week (if tests pass).

Great thing this add-on!

I extended it a little bit to recognize "asx" and "flv" files:
Link: home.arcor.de/auktbilder/vlc_context_menu-0.7.2-fx-extended.xpi

You can esily extend the add-on yourself:

1. Download this add-on as -xpi-file.
2. Rename .xpi-file to .zip .
3. Unzip file into own directory (for example "UnzipDir".
4. Using a simple text editor, edit listing of accepted media types in file "UnzipDir\chrome\content\\vlcplaylist.js" - MAKE SURE YOU STICK TO THE SYNTAX!
5. Change version name in file "UnzipDir\install.rdf" (under the <em:version>-tag). For example to "0.7.2ext2".
6. Create an new .zip-file from all files and directories in "UnzipDir".
7. Rename the .zip to .xpi.
8. Install by opening it in Firefox (remove the old version first, if necessary).
9. Publish here if it runs good!

Thanks to Helga for the great work!
