Header infomation in luac is different 32bit and 64bit, and liblua checks it.
liblua refuses when loading wrong luac like:
lua debug: Trying Lua playlist script D:\utils\vlc\lua\playlist\youtube.luac
lua warning: Error loading script
D:\utils\vlc\lua\playlist\youtube.luac: bad header in precompiled
FYI, Compiled lua scripts in win32 NB are the same as one generated by
32bit luac, and in win64 NB, same as one generated by 64bit luac.
Maybe switching luac somehow...

If it's only my particular problem, please ignore it.
