I tried to open a URL in VLC. But I am getting the error that "Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=N7_EkrPJzqs'. Check the log for details.

The start pictures are running through!

not one video is played!

I followed all the instructions, but did not get the result. VLC - YouTube videos won't play anymore

You could try adding the stable daily ppa of vlc and installing the latest version if the other instructions do not work for you. See the launchpad page. –  user76204 Apr 2 '13 at 17:05
