 Youtube playlist

Import a youtube video / playlist into VLC.

- click on the download button below
- when the file appears click on the menu file > save as... of your browser
- put the file in the vlc /lua/playlist folder, by default:
* Windows (all users): %ProgramFiles%\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\
* Windows (current user): %APPDATA%\vlc\lua\playlist\
* Linux (all users): /usr/lib/vlc/lua/playlist/
* Linux (current user): ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/playlist/
* Mac OS X (all users): /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/playlist/
(create directories if they don\'t exist)
/!\ Some browser (Chrome...) may change the file extension for ".txt" instead of ".lua", so make sure you choose "All extensions" in the dialog box when you save the file on your computer.

- Copy the URL of the youtube video or playlist (must contain "list=PL...")
- Start VLC, press Ctrl+N, paste the url then click on "Play" (or Alt+P then Enter), the video /playlist should start

If the playlist appear but the videos don't start, you may have an outdated version of the script getting the video from youtube. You can get the last version of "youtube.lua" from here:
-> delete the file name "youtube.lua" or "youtube.luac" and replace it with the new one


- retrieve video real url
- display clean video title and thumbnail
- Add support for playlist with 100+ videos

If you use Google Chrome and you click save as you will get the full HTML data and that is why it does not work.
You should make a file in the playlist folder named "playlist_youtube.luac" (if you are not sure how to make the file a luac file, google how to edit the fileformat)
Then open the file in an text editor (like notepad) and COPY the text from the page you get into when you click "download" and paste in the playlist_youtube.luac. save it and reload VLC

 Won't play playlists

 by JpTM on: Jul 27 2014

I can't get it to work :( When I try to play a playlist (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYqfXQ-ztmZJBrH5uxs0IasF3gUhdTflO) it tells me: "Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL". When I change the https into http it doesn't give me an error, but just doesn't play. It does nothing.

I can however play https URL's of single video's just fine. (E.g. www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgIHxfvsge4)

I use the latest version of VLC (vlc-2.1.5-win32), and downloaded the script from the URL mentioned in troubleshooting. And I doubt it matters, but I use the portable version of VLC.
