Time2Clipboard
VLC Extensions
Description:

This extension copies the current time to the clipboard by using different hotkeys.
Windows only. VLC 2.0.x required.
Useful e.g. for transcription.

Examples:
Person A (00:12):
Person B (01:23:45):

You could use AutoHotkey for global hotkeys. E.g. to automatically copy the time and paste it in Microsoft Word:
!c:: ;use alt-c as global hotkey (change here)
SetTitleMatchMode 2
If WinExist("Microsoft Word") and WinExist("VLC media player") {
WinActivate, VLC media player
WinWaitActive, VLC media player
Send, +c ;send shift c to VLC (change here)
WinActivate, Microsoft Word
WinWaitActive, Microsoft Word
Send, ^v
}
return

Can somebody help me where can I find a keycode list for the key IDs in the code? Like what stands for shift+h etc. What can I use here?
is it possible to give global hotkeys for this? How?

How, and what should I modify to get the "video filename, return, ---" to the clipboard if its possible. ( for markdown)

You can watch key codes in VLC console (View > Add Interface > Console) after activation of Time2Clipboard extension. Then edit the script and use your desired key code there. As for the global hotkeys, please read the description of the extension here. You can install AutoHotkey and write your custom .ahk script.

Could somebody help me how can I use this extension? I've copied the file to the extension folder, and after clicking in the view menu the extension name (activating) I tried the shift+c shortcut, but there's nothing in the clipboard. Is there anybody who used this extension succesfully?

Thank you. This solved the problem. A friend searched for the solution and found that some function in the code doesn't work with versions from 2.1, as an option had been removed. With Vlc 2.0.8 it works perfectly.

in the readme file there was 2.0.x or later I think. Sorry if the version info here was already correct when I asked this question.
