Thanks levidan, but if you look at the date, that was a very old post and I've had the problem sorted for a long time now. Cheers :-) - May 10 2014
Hi there, I've never dealt with VLC addons before so can you please tell me what I do with the lua file? Cheers. - Oct 02 2012

Sorry diegofn, I replied to the wrong person. Please read my reply to Nyltino's (not very helpful) post below. - Oct 05 2012
Hi Nyltino, Thanks for the reply but it was the zip file I used. In view of the problems I'm having I have no idea what files need to go where or if they're even all necessary but I've placed the various files here:

radiotime.lua and streamtheworld.lua:
C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist
C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\sd
C:\Users\{...}\AppData\Roaming\vlc\lua\extensions

tunein.lua:
C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\sd
C:\Users\{...}\AppData\Roaming\vlc\lua\extensions

As I said earlier, TuneIn Radio will only appear in the 'Plugins and Extensions' window and 'View' menu if C:\Users\{...}\AppData\Roaming\vlc\lua\extensions is used. But selecting it in the View menu does nothing. And the entry in the Plugins and Extensions windows has no info - it just shows the 'TuneIn Radio' entry name. Hope this helps. - Oct 05 2012
Hi there, I love this idea. But I can't get it to work.

Firstly though, sorry, but is your path correct? Shouldn't this:
C:/program files (x86)/VLC/VideoLAN/lua/sd

Be this:
.../VideoLAN/VLC/...

And I'm confused by your installation instructions. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. I've put the files here:

tunein.lua - C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\sd\
radiotime.lua - C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\
streamtheworld.lua - C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist\

But nothing shows in the View menu or in Tools/Plugins and extensions. I'm not very familiar with ula files but I found that the only way to make extensions appear in these two places is to place lua files here:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\vlc\lua\extensions\

So I put all three lua files there and TuneIn Radio now appears in both locations but when I click it in the View menu nothing happens. Is there something else I need to do? - Oct 02 2012
