#### Description (possibly out of sync with videolan page)
Import a youtube video / playlist into VLC.

##### History and maintenance
This is a modification of https://addons.videolan.org/p/1154080/ . The original author seems incommunicado, hence submitting this separate plugin. Please submit pull requests and issues at https://github.com/vvasuki/vlc-addons/blob/master/lua-addons/playlist_youtube.luac .

##### INSTALLATION:
- Download https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vvasuki/vlc-addons/master/lua-addons/playlist_youtube.luac or use the Download button (Some browser (Chrome...) may change the file extension for ".txt" instead of ".luac", so make sure you choose "All extensions" in the dialog box when you save the file on your computer.)
- put the file in the vlc /lua/playlist folder, by default (create directories if they don't exist):
* 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/


##### 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

The file doesn't download as easily as the one you took the extension from. Here you either end up downloading an html file if you save link as when the "follow link option" comes up or you don't get any download but just get what I assume is the code of the extension displayed in the browser
