Very nice indeed. I had no idea you could play YT videos in VLC.

 

FWIW, you should select the "Double Quotes" and "Backslashes" escaping options in your Script Filters or things will break if someone enters " or \ in a query.

Ah good idea, will do thanks.

 

Yeah I didn't know VLC could do that either until I found a workflow that plays Twitch Streams in VLC as well, then it got me digging.
