Vlc context menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Here's a quick hack that made this addon from "not too useful" to "supersweet" for me:
1. Close Firefox
2. Find vlcplaylist@helgatauscher.de.xpi in your Firefox profile and unzip it
3. Inside that find the file vlcplaylist.xul and edit it:
- find the line that says <script type="application/x-javascript" src="vlcplaylist.js" /> and delete it
- find where it says oncommand="vlc.addUrl(gContextMenu.linkURL);" and change that to oncommand="vlc.addUrl(gContextMenu.onLink ? gContextMenu.linkURL : content.location);"
4. Zip the file back inside vlcplaylist@helgatauscher.de.xpi

This way the Add to VLC menu item is always there (what Yakov tried to do), and you can click the page background to send its URL to VLC. I.e. when you're browsing some Youtube channel, you can right click and send to vlc all the videos you would like to watch, and you can also send the video that you have currently opened ;-)
