|Description||Control VLC via a telnet connection|
The telnet module communicates with VLC over a network connection using the telnet protocol. The original module was provided until 1.1.0, when it was re-written in Lua. The old module was renamed to oldtelnet and removed in 2.0.0.
Telnet should not be used for sensitive applications.
To find module information on the command-line for VLC 2.0.0 and above, use
vlc -p lua --advanced --help-verbose and look for the Lua Telnet section.
