In the past I wrote about a add-on for VLC (VideoLan) player, that allows viewers to download subtitles from online sources directly from the player itself. I watch a lot of movies on my computer and Wikipedia is my favorite source for additional information on the movie I am watching.
I came across an add-on that allows looking up related information from Wikipedia while I am watching a movie, from the player itself.
- The latest version of VLC player can be found from here. Make sure you upgrade to it.
- Now visit Wikipedia Information add-on page and download the ULA extension.
- If only a code is shows up, copy paste it into a notepad and save the file with .ula extension.
- Save the file to this path if you are using windows.
Windows (all users): %ProgramFiles%VideoLANVLCluaextensions
Now as you can see in the image above, while watching a movie, just click on View >> Wikipedia Lookup.
