We use a transparent proxy, and works perfectly through it (the iptables
rules used in the proxy redirect to the real gateway all the traffic
except the traffic to the port 80 that is redirected to squid. So for
ports different than 80, we're not really using a proxy.

Only spanish portals and some international well known sites that I
guess you've already tested.

mmm, vlc didn't work very well in the past, for gtk based desktops I
think totem-mozilla is a much better option. In my last tests I used it
for a time and worked "almost" as well as mplayer-plugin, it worked in
most web pages, but I switched back to mplayer-plugin because
totem-plugin used to hide the reproduction controls and I don't like
that behaviour (even if the javascript of the page says they should be
hidden I like to have the option to show them as mplayer-plugin does)

xine, vlc, mplayer & totem. xine & totem had the same engine, but when
switching totem to gstreamer the perfomance was very similar. Vlc had
also a very good perfomance, similar to mplayer, but the quality of the
rendered video was worst. Anyway, I'm writting this email being offline
and trusting in my memory, which is not my best quality, so put take
this email just as an opinion that might be put in quarantine.
