4 most popular plugins? It's implemented using NPAPI [1], so in theory
should be supported by: Mozilla Application Suite, Mozilla Firefox,
Safari, Opera, Konqueror and some versions of Microsoft Internet

Is playlist support a must-have feature? If so, probably should be
handled by a GStreamer element. Fullscreen support should not be that
difficult, but I leave that to somebody else.
