I have a Mac across the room hooked up to a big monitor. I do a lot of programming on a Linux netbook, and have lots of terminals open. It'd be nice if I could run a script called something like "add2vlc" which would take a file and push it on the end of the VLC playlist.
Is there any way of doing this?
On Windows and Linux, you can call vlc (or vlc.exe) with --playlist-enqueue. But /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC cannot be called with --playlist-enqueue.
I see that in /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/ there is all sorts of Lua code to script VLC, but I don't really know Lua and can't seem to find documentation that describes how I might use this code to add stuff to the playlist.
If I enable VLC's RC module, VLC doesn't start. Neither does it start with the ncurses controller. Do I need to recompile VLC to get this?
