Image from store Open in VLC™ media player
Description from store Open in VLC™ media player extension, sends video and audio links to the well-known VLC media player. This way you can directly watch online streams in the VLC media player with just one click. To send these links to the VLC media player, right-click over the video or audio link and use the context menu item or use the browser action button. If the extension only grabs a single link, the link is opened in the player. If multiple links are detected, you will get a prompt box to select media links to be sent to the player. Note: For this extension to work, you will need to install a minimal native-client application. Instruction on how to install the native client will be displayed once the extension is used. You can also watch installation instruction on the FAQs page How to use this extension: 1. The extension appends a context menu item to the browser context menu when the media element is the target. 2. The toolbar icon becomes active (colorful) when a page is supported As of version 0.2.0, there is a tool to join media files in a single media file. You can find this tool on the right-click context menu over the page action button. The output format of this tool is WAV. You can use VLC to convert this WAV file to any other audio format. --- Legal VLC is a trademark of the VideoLAN organization.

  • (2023-03-26) Dayton “daycord” Mickens: What the hell just happened?!?!? Before this morning I could open up multiple video streams, now it will only open one stream at a time. If I happen to have a video stream already playing in the vlc media player in try to send another video stream to the vlc player using the extension, it plays over the current video stream already playing. Use to be able to play multiple video streams at once. As of this morning it will only open and play one video stream at at time. What happened overnight?!?!? I did not tweak any of the settings in my vlc player or the extension. Why is it now only allowing one video stream to play at a time?!?!?

  • (2022-08-14) LuckyOd: супер
  • (2022-06-10) Jacob Schweiger: All the reveiws complaining that it doesn't work on chrome os are silly. The real issue is that the quality of the video is lower in vlc with the extention then it is normally (at least with the youtube video I tested) so unless you're really short on time and/or storage space and really love vlc then your probably better off using the sites native video player or downloading the video and running it in normal vlc.
