VLC Youtube Shortcut

Support 64 bit VLC or 32 bit VLC? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I once reported "How to handle Youtube https protocol? " on March 27, 2014 for previous review.

VLC is unable to open the MRL Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=........'. Check the log for details.

But I recently found the problem is not 100% actually related to HTTPS or HTTP url differention, but with 64bit VLC.

Before I tried VLC Liberykey Portable version and installed VLC 64 bit standalone version on Win 8.1 X64. So I set VLC executable file location:
C:\Programme Files\VLC\vlc.exe
and
C:\LiberKey\Apps\VLC\VLCLKL.exe

VLC media player - http://www.liberkey.com/apps/vlc.en

Both liberkey version and standalone 64 bit version have same MRL error message when pass Youtube url to VLC and play. VLC Liberykey Portable version actually has both x86 and x64 included. On 64 bit system, VLC Liberkey version tends to run x64 by default. So I alway get the error message.

But I recently set the VLC executable file location:
C:\LiberKey\Apps\VLC\App\VLC\x86\vlc.exe

Error messay never showed up.

I try to insert Youtube url directly through VLC Menu > Media > Open Network Stream without using "VLC Youtube Shortcut" , VLC 64bit always has MRL error problem, while VLC x86 never.

So it looks like vlc X64 version has problem handling youtube url.I don't know why.

Thanks for your time.

I'd like to have a format like
"Titile - URL ",
instead of the default
"Title
URL"
Is it possible?

VLC Youtube Shortcut

How to handle Youtube https protocol? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your great add-on. It works like a charm with URL like 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=........'.

But I am wondering how to make this extension work with Youtube HTTPS. When you signed in youtube, it seems that Youtube needs CA-Certificate to validate an https connection, so VLC got an error message when you pass the Youtube https url to VLC:

VLC is unable to open the MRL Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=........'. Check the log for details.

Check Menu - Tool - message:
main error: TLS client plugin not available
main error: open of `https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=.....' failed

Any solutions?
Either remove "S" when you send the HTTPS URL to "VLC' from "VLC Youtube Shortcut" or something?
Thanks

Curious that why I don't have such problem, I have even tried the beta Ver.6.2.0a7 from author's website and works like a charm.
