Description:

Import a youtube video / playlist into VLC.


INSTALLATION:
- 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%VideoLANVLCluaplaylist
* Windows (current user): %APPDATA%vlcluaplaylist
* 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.

USAGE:
- 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

Troubleshooting:
/! 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 FilesVideoLANVLCluaplaylistyoutube.luac)
2) get the latest version of thr "youtube" script from here:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/videolan/vlc/master/share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua
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.

.luac version of the fixed youtube.lua file, which I compiled, since newer youtube releases doesn't seem to use youtube.lua anymore (at least for me) https://www.dropbox.com/s/wuzp49xniy3baqo/youtube.luac?dl=0

Upgrade the VLC defult plugin allows play again the playlists:
eg http://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6dFtv5p3AFdo7Rf9wc30suXID3L5du8W
Restriction: the YouTube download only links of 100 videos first, so this plugin load only this first 100! (further development: it to handle this.)

+ more feature: you can use the autonextplay parameter in the video link for Play Next Video Automatically function (as neverending story! :)
eg http://youtu.be/KKLT_0qavoU?autonextplay
eg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKLT_0qavoU&autonextplay

Download the
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/l-aloha/vlc_youtubeplaylist/master/youtube.lua
... and enjoy the silence!
(Tested with current latest 2.2.6 VLC release on Win 7 x64 and Windows XP x86.)

Do I need to compile the playlist.lua to playlist.luac first?
What is the usage of youtube_homepage.luac ?

usage =
[[
To compile a lua script to bytecode (luac) run:
vlc -I luaintf --lua-intf --lua-config 'luac={input="file.lua",output="file.luac"}'
Output will be similar to that of the luac command line tool provided with lua with the following arguments:
luac -o file.luac file.lua

Hey Blueice,

Were you able to fix the "HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden" error using the updated plugin? or any other way? I am still getting the 403 error.

Thank you very much (L)Aloha!
Your plugin works on my PC!

The BIG deception is that only first 100 videos links are downloaded... :((((((

I have a playlist with more than 200 videos...
So...have to wait further development...

Unfortunately, this add-on stopped working (showing only one item).

As a workaround, you can do it manually:
1. Open your playlist page in Youtube. e.g. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=XXXX
2. Open the source code of page. If you dont know how, google "open source code of page in "
3. Select all texts (using Ctrl-A) and paste it to a text editor. Notepad ++ is a good option here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org
4. Find the line containing {"url":"/watch?v= text. If you dont know how, use the following guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3sOIqs1Ifw
5. Replace {"url":"/watch with \nhttps://www.youtube.com/watch. If you dont know how, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYzUDmBBIUY&t=108s. This step effectively makes a multiline text file. Each line contains a video URL in your playlist.
6. Now cleanup the file to have only one URL in each line and nothing else.
7. Final step is to add #EXTM3U in the first line of this file.
8. You are done. Just save the text file as My_Playlist.m3u and you can open it on VLC.

Note: Your final file should look like:
#EXTM3U
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXX1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXX2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXX3

Enjoy!

It only works for me with 64-bit version, and starts skipping videos as soon as random order is activated. What I'll try is let the entire playlist play in normal order, and activate random order when all files got loaded
