AHA, I found a temporary fix for it!

- Navigate to the playlist folder (see the "INSTALLATION" section on the top

- Open the youtube playlist lua file in a text editor

- Search for "item.artist" (CTRL+F)

- Put "--~ " before "item.artist"
It should look like this:
--~ item.artist = video.author.CDATA

- Save the file

- Restart VLC

- And it should work!

Same here, here's the error that shows up in the messages window with debug:
