[vlc-devel] [lua] Proposal for a standard-included playlist script...

The use case is that it's easy for users to install scripts. They
merely open a URL, and click yes when it prompts. Telling users to put
magic files in what are essentially hidden directories in 2012 isn't

Wouldn't have to be link tags, but they seem like the right sort. As
for "something special"... the playlist I linked to would be capable
of installing such, but for a few disabled scripting features.
