I compiled VLC 2.0.0 on Ubuntu 11.10 successfully, however I couldn't find the VLC Web Plugin for playback of video from HTML.

In referring to

I configured, compiled and installed VLC with the following commands:

./configure --enable-mozilla
Password:  [Root Password]
make install

I downloaded the VLC source code from here

So, the question is, where is VLC web plugin in VLC 2.0?

It has been split off from vlc & you'll have to build separately. Atm not sure where you'll get tarballs other than from debian or launchpad, Example -

For the latest git, After downloading cd to source & run ./

git clone git://

git shortlog page has snapshots if you don't want the latest, info on commits, ect
