 Youtube playlist

Downloads:  320219
Submitted:  Apr 4 2012
Updated:  Aug 22 2015


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

/!\ Follow this steps if and only if you have already install the script and it doesn't work..
/!\ for the actual script see the "download" button (playlist_youtube.lua) below.
If the videos list appears in the Vlc "playlist" view but the videos won't start, follow this steps:
1) delete the file "youtube.luac" in [Vlc directory]/lua/playlist directory (ex: c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\youtube.luac)
2) get the latest version of thr "youtube" script from here:
3) place the file in the directory [Vlc directory]/lua/playlist (where "youtube.luac" was)

/!\/!\/!\ Please do not paste your raw error log here, use a pastebin service like pastebin.com.


- display clean video title and thumbnail
- Add support for playlist with 100+ videos
- fix change in youtube playslists

 Videos stop prematurely

I really like this addon. But...

Why in God's name is it cutting videos short?! Many, many times I'm listening to a song and before the song ends, it skips to the next one. I would love a fix.

 I am having trouble getting this plugin to work

I am on windows 10, just updated to VLC 2.2.4, and I am constantly getting these errors


http error: error: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
core error: no suitable access module for `http://www.youtube.com/list_ajax?action_get_list=1&style=xml&list=FL-N3HwrqQid-mJlx0loUkqQ&index=1'
http error: error: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
http error: error: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
core error: no suitable access module for `http://www.youtube.com/list_ajax?action_get_list=1&style=xml&list=FL-N3HwrqQid-mJlx0loUkqQ&index=1'

as near as I can tell it is dying on the line:
s = vlc.stream(playlistURL........

I tried the latest version of youtube.lua, but that does not seem to have made a difference.

 Playlist notwork

Remember if your playlist is not working from it is important that the list is at least unlisted. if it is private it wont work.

I almost pulled my hair out figuring it out.

That was it all right, thanks, would have taken me forever to figure that out.

Now my play list is skipping every other song. It throws an error on the ones it skips. I'm guessing it errors out when youtube tries to inject an ad.

i have noticed the skipping too, in the end of some of the songs.

Havent checked the log for those. Perhaps someone more knowlegde in the addon can enlighten us.

(btw again HUGE thanks for the addon it is AWESOME).
if it's "fixable" in the addon, can we have a option to just let it skip the adds and cut the sound like it works now. i don't really want the adds for when im streaming.

 Newest youtube.lua (6/24/16)Fixed skipping/mrl ETC

 by DemonicWinna on: Jul 12 2016

So I found a working youtube.lua (newer than link posted by author and countless others)
Here is direct link to copy and save http://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc.git;a=blob_plain;f=share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua;hb=feb851a03443d8f8d3068107a31995bf2158d881

and here is a link where you can see when it gets updated,with update notes etc and then download any new updates


I can recreate the problem that a lot get with videos being skipped (some did and didn't), mrl, decoding etc just by using the youtube.lua that the addon author posted, all works as expected even vids with ads for me.

After having difficulties using authors link to the old one and trying countless "fixes" that pretty much just use the EXACT same .lua, I over-looked it was a git address so it was then pretty obvious http://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc.git and just search for the lua........

I went a page back and tried the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM__lPTWThU that EdHunterMH posted and it worked, when I tried the .lua the author posted it didn't work.

I know nothing about about lua etc, but I figure if I was still getting some of the same errors that people were in march and my client is fully updated, and this fixed it (and can be re-created) then I thought it couldn't hurt. Playlists now work fantastic 100% of the time with no drops/skips/errors.
