Is there is any way to change the quality of the video from 360p to 1080p?

Do as described everything works fine. I see the playlist content and thumbnails, but when I hit play it just skips the whole list without playing anything

Does this happen with all playlists or just some playlist?

I found the solution:
The problem was that I couldnt watch any youtube videos.

After adding https://github.com/videolan/vlc/blob/master/share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua into "AppData/..." it worked even if I had it in "Program Files/..."

I had the same problem. I updated youtube.lua from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/videolan/vlc/master/share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua . Then, I was able to play most videos of https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL63uIhJxWbgg0OV_AGJ--T4nwTs8XCkX7 .

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
