Submitted:  Apr 4 2012

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.


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

Shuffle doesnt work properly, when shuffle is on, and I hit next, it just shuffles through all of the songs endlessly as if I keep hitting next.

I explain the problem; when you load a playlist this is what append:
1) this extension (playlist_youtube.lua) retrieve the list of videos from the url and set the playlist in vlc
2) when a video is loaded, the url is recognized as a youtube url, and the youtube video extension (youtube.lua) retrieve the actual video url from the video web page url
3) plays video...

I guess what's happening:
When Vlc shuffle, it takes a random url from the list and try to play directly, skeepind the 2) step.
So one solution could be to merge the 2 extensions, so it provide directly the actual video url, basically merge steps 1) and 2) into a single step. But that's probably not a good idea because the youtube's video url are temporary. So
the url could expires by the time you reach the end of the playlist and videos would not play anymore.
The other solution is to report this as a bug to the vlc tea, asking they make shuffle function goes as the same steps as a video played normally.
