Automatically skip intro/outro credit sequences in VLC.


Download the credit-skipper.lua file and place it in your VLC extensions directory:

  • Linux
    • ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
  • Windows
    • %APPDATA%/vlc/lua/extensions/
  • macOS
    • /Users/(name)/Library/Application Support/org.videolan.vlc/lua/extensions/


  1. Queue up media items within your playlist (Ctrl+L).
  2. From the View menu, select Skip Intro/Outro Credits.
  3. If you have an existing profile, select it from the dropdown menu and press Load. This will populate the settings section with the values loaded from the selected profile.
  4. The settings section can be used to configure an existing profile or to create a new one. Click the Save button to save your changes.
  5. Profiles are saved as a file named credit-skipper.conf in your VLC config directory, alongside your vlcrc file.
  6. Press the Start Playlist button to play the playlist with the skip settings applied.
