Day 6: Best extensions for VLC

VLC extensions

For our 6th day, we'd like to speak about extensions for VLC and provide a few.

Extensions in VLC are not very popular yet, because we are missing a few functionnalities.
Still, some are already cool to use.

Extensions in VLC can add new features that we don't want to support in the main core, or that we cannot.

Some extensions
