It is possible that you have not undertaken the full installation procedure.
You must NOT run the plugin!
You must just click on a file with .rvf on the end and a little icon in

If you cannot see the icon, you are not running the special firmware required.
You will also want to double check that video.rock is in the
/.rockbox/rocks directory.
