Getting VLC add ons written in lua to work


I tried to do this some time ago without any success. More recently I installed VLC using videolans opensuse one click install. There are lots of add ons listed on the vlc add ons web page. General advice is that they should be placed in a folder called

Code:
~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
I have also tried other ~local places suggested but the add ons don't appear in the application.

Any thoughts? I do have the lua libs installed both 32 and 64bit and have recently added the front end and devel headers but adding these hasn't made any difference. I added the front end after reading a web comment that vlc wouldn't compile without it's header files.

Problem solved after a fashion. I ran vlc from the console via vlc -vvv to get debug output and found that the add on I was trying to use was faulty. It may have been ok in the past but now it seems that they must have functions named descriptor,activate and deactivate in them.
