It can be useful to remember artists and song name while listening to webradios.


Installation:
Copy the plugin file in the folder:
On Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
On Windows or MacOSX: lua/{playlist,meta,intf}/

Restart vlc.
This plugin should now be visible as "Remember Now Playing" in the "View" menu.


Usage:
While a media is being played, click on "Remember Now Playing" from the "View" menu.

The metadata are stored in a text file: /lua/extensions/userdata/remember-playing-now.txt

I recommend you to upgrade your script to use vlc.io if it is available (introduced by VLSub included in VLC 3.0.2) instead of Lua's standard io functions. It solves the issue with non-ASCII characters in the path on some systems. This script and similar ones can work properly on all systems from now.
