Adding a YouTube Live Stream to VLC

This is a quick instruction on how to add a YouTube Live video stream to VLC.

First visit the site where the YouTube Live Streaming is happening.

For example:

Once on that page check the live streaming video and copy the URL. It is something like:

Open up the VLC application and select "Media -> Open Network Stream...":



Put the YouTube Live URL and start playing the video with the "Play" button at the bottom.


Maybe some security warnings may appear, just accept them.
