How to fix the problem?

To fix the problem, here are instructions:

  1. First, if vlc is still open, close it.
  2. Then, download this file here and place it somewhere where you can find it easily.
  3. Next, hit Windows key + R to open the Run command and then copy/paste the following text in the bold font and hit Enter: C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\lua\playlist This will open the location where all the vlc .luac files are stored.
  4. Continue by drag and drop the youtube.luac file you created earlier and confirm that you want to overwrite the one which is already present.
  5. Finally, close File Explorer and then restart EMD and try and play the videos which produced the error before.

Thanks to the whole team of the powerful VLC media player for their great responsiveness.
