Open in VLC™ is an Opera add-on that enables you to open desired link(s) in VLC (VideoLAN) application. VLC is a free and open-source media player that can play almost any types of media file (audio or video).
To operate with this add-on you need a native-client patch to connect your browser with native VLC application in your OS. When you first install the add-on, please head to the options page and adjust the path for VLC player. Depending on your operating system, the path to VLC could be different.

Please re-check this path in your OS and make sure it is correct. Once you set the correct path to VLC in the options page, please install the native-client patch.
