Successful Rovio Re-Install with 5.02b4 Firmware, VLC Issues

Just re-set up my Rovio (after finding a new, suitable location) and it's running great on the newest beta firmware.

I
think the support for audio in Safari and Firefox is awesome, but the
dialog box that pops up on the Rovio isn't entirely clear - it's not as

plugins, since there isn't one.

You actually have to download the browser plugins separately from this page - it's an additional package:

Testing the Rovio Installer 2.0 Beta?

A short while back, Michelle posted the 2.0 version of Rovio's software installer, dubbed the "silver bullet."  We've seen that it's being downloaded but haven't heard any feedback.  (You can download it here.)

What does everybody think of this new software package?  Does it function as promised?  The features are exciting - the automatic updates to both software and firmware is a long-needed upgrade.

Let WowWee know your thoughts, don't be afraid to chime in on your beta testing :)
