I am trying get milliseconds shown in VLC.

I read that I should download this extension

(there was a download link on that page, not sure if it's quite right, like I don't know if I downloaded some lite version that I shouldn't have but I downloaded this)

http://addons.videolan.o rg/CONTENT/content-files/149619-time-lite.lua

and put it in "VideoLAN\VLC\lua\extensions" creating the extensions subdirectory if it doesn't exist. I did that.

closed VLC, started it again.

It is listed under the View menu. I notice it doesn't get checked. even when I click it - I don't know if it should. The same is true for the VLSub extension below, it doesn't get checked when clicking it. Maybe that is normal and extensions are already enabled.

But my problem is, it doesn't show miliseconds, which is what i'm after.

I can only suggest you email them direct? I'm sorry I can't help, or tell you anything but the obvious :( – Dave Feb 10 '14 at 9:38

According to mederi, the author of the Time extension, the var.add_callback( ) and var.del_callback( ) Lua functions are no longer available in VLC 2.1.

Unless VLC is patched to add the removed functions the script will not work as written.
