Some questions to help us get to the bottom of it...

  1. Does putting the file in /usr/local/lib/vlc/lua/intf/ work?
  2. Are there any other files in /lib/vlc/lua/intf/?
  3. What directory is http.luac or cli.luac or telnet.luac located in? Does putting syncplay.lua in that folder work?
  4. What version of VLC and Syncplay are you using?

Oh, and also try putting it in ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/intf/ and let me know if that works.

Is VLC installed as a single-user or multi-user application?

Thanks for the update. It looks like https://github.com/Syncplay/syncplay/blob/master/GNUmakefile will need to be updated to work properly on systems where the relevant lib directory is /lib64/

Not fixed yet, but syncplay.lua is now updated to explain that sometimes you need to use /lib64/ (76d63c9) and the troubleshooting guide has been updated too.

I've commited change to Makefile that should ensure syncplay.lua is always seen by VLC.
