Open YouTube videos in VLC.

Image from store VLC 4 YouTube (beta)
Description from store Click the extension icon when you are on a YouTube™ page to open the current video in VLC (or just hit Alt+V). Full controls and more features are on the way... stay tuned! VLC uses less resources and can boost the volume up to 200%. NB: You _NEED_ to have VLC 2.0 (or above) installed and to activate its http interface (read here https://github.com/azrafe7/vlc4youtube/blob/master/instructions/how-to-enable-vlc-web-interface.md on how to do it). You may need to restart VLC after enabling the web interface.

  • (2021-06-06) StuffJake: работает, но не хочет тправлять 1080p в плеер
  • (2020-07-12) Steven Wilson: Used to like this extension and use it from time to time, but it breaks YouTube Music Premium (makes it skip songs and play ads despite being on Premium). Had to remove it.
  • (2020-03-04) Gibby Nla: So far it works, but I can't seem to enqueue videos, it goes directly to whatever youtube page I'm on. I'd like to queue up several videos instead of having to constantly paying attention to my chrome browser surfing through youtube videos. Thanks, Update: I followed your instructions and it seems that sometimes the videos just jump to vlc and start playing while other times I am able to select enqueue from the pop up menu and send it without it starting immediately. It seems inconsistent at this point. If you can have it always pause in the pop up before we choose to enqueue it, that would be nice.
  • (2020-01-12) Андрей Б.: Ничего не появляется в адресной строке, хотя WEB-интерфейс VLC загружается и работает. Версия Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112, версия VLC 3.0, ОС Windows XP.
  • (2019-03-28) OK

  • (2017-10-13) Макс Бойцов: отличное и нужное приложение всё работает замечательно
  • (2017-09-28) Serge Goujon: Работает отлично. Правда, чтобы заработало, надо включить в настройках web интерфейс и во время нажатия кнопки этого расширения в Ютубе, VLC должен быть запущен.
  • (2017-08-27) Женя Карташов: Лажа полная, не работает, за-то проигрыватель способен сам воспроизводить видео из utuba по ссылке и без этого расширения!
  • (2017-08-25) Cuma Mahli: dsrf
  • (2017-02-07) Орлов Владимир Григорьевич: Потрясающе! Очень при очень ценная разработка! Большое спасибо!
  • (2017-01-28) Richard Chassereau: Works great! Saves you the hassle of copying the url to paste into VLC. Which I would do for videos with poor audio. It's not a huge deal, but it's very convenient. Good job!
  • (2017-01-17) qq qq: не работает. удалил
  • (2017-01-10) Ivan Gutz: karlajazminibarramolina
  • (2017-01-01) Александра Артанова: Greate! It works on linux perfectly, now i can play HD youtube on poor netbook.
  • (2016-12-02) Matt Burnham (MxMattyB): Worked right away. Only supports up to 720p30 but I know this is a problem with YouTube and/or VLC (mostly youtube) and not this extension edit why in the crap would you default the keyboard shortcut to ctrl+shift+v you insane maniacal demon edit 2 bumping down a star because I realized I haven't used it after the first time, and realized I still had it installed because I recently reinstalled chrome and it still bloody takes ctrl+shift+v by default
  • (2016-11-30) paulo miguel barreto: otimo
  • (2016-11-12) aba azizi: ok
  • (2016-09-30) Best Friend Jones: Thanks mate i like it !!
  • (2016-09-27) Daniel Argumedo: Funciona perfectamente, deben activar la interfaz web. Para eso entran en VLC -> Herramientas -> Preferencias (Ctrl+P) -> en la parte inferior izquierda en "Mostrar Ajustes" selecciona "Todo" -> Buscas Interfaz - Interfaces principales -> Activas la casilla "Web" -> Reinicia VLC y listo!
  • (2016-09-27) stephenson benjamin: love it
  • (2016-09-26) Abeer Soorma: dumb
  • (2016-09-06) Sandy Prager: Works great!
  • (2016-08-17) Arthur Moore: Works well, but I wish there was a way to push the Title/Artist to VLC
  • (2016-07-29) Radek Kapica: Doesn't work since few days (maybe since last update, idk) - the VLC icon is "grey", the program won't run even if VLC is already in the background. Any solutions?
