How to install
Extract appropriate plugin version (x86 or x64) to
vlc/plugins/access directory (since it is 'access'-type plugin, however you can place it anywhere under plugins directory). Well, that's it.
To ensure that it is recognized by VLC go to menu
Tools Plugins and extensions Plugins and check plugins list, '3DYD Youtube Source' should be listed there.
Note, this is not standalone plugin. It requires 3DYD Youtube Source filter to be installed in the system.
- both x86 and x64 variants (for VLC 2.2.4)
- support for DASH streams
- subtitles support
- support for the video start time. E.g. when you click in Youtube player
Copy video URL at current timeand open that URL in VLC, it will be opened at given time instead of from the beginning
- reporting the video title, description and extra metadata (which you can see, for example, in
Tools Media Information Metadata)
Also since it uses filter, filter settings are also used here. Manual quality selection when opening the video is also supported.
Filter icon is displayed in system tray (if this is allowed in filter configuration), so there is accessible all info for which the system tray icon provides access.
Tested with VLC 2.2.4, both x86 and x64 versions.
