I am presently just recommend Firefox over the install process of VLC.. 
Since if you have to download and go though an install process might as 
well be firefox (instead of a plugin)  But if the solution you describes 
works pretty well _in a pure in-browser sessions_  then I think it would 
be worth while integrating into the library. Or maybe give users a 
choice on mouse over?

I also had bad early experiences with VLC. Although it performs better 
than cortado in IE in terms of start up-time and overall responsiveness 
of the system. The IE activeX seems to crash slightly less than sun java 
(at least in my virtual machine instance of windows XP anyway)
