VLC Media Player 1.1.11 YouTube crashes (FIX)

In VLC Media Player Version 1.1.11 there is a bug with playing youtube videos. When you open a youtube video in VLC under Windows then the programm crashes immediately.

Solution:

– Replace the youtube.lua file in folder C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist  file with this one.

I tried this and it didn't work, unfortunately. VLC still crashes when I try to stream Youtube videos as soon as I hit Play.

Thanks a lot! It worked here on Windows XP SP3 32! Currently stable version is 1.11.1 Excellent. It crashes without this .lua change.

Thanks so much!!! I spent so much time trying to find out why vlc was crashing when I would stream a youtube video...it works great now. I deleted the youtube.lua file, downloaded your link to the same spot...that was it. :)
