Cannot open network stream in VLC, and cannot delete/replace youtube.luac file

th flag

Tried to follow the instructions as written here under "Updating the VLC Youtube parser": VLC - YouTube videos won't play anymore

The problem is I can't delete the youtube.luac file. Apparently it's read-only and located within the snap directory (specifically, /snap/vlc/2344/usr/lib/vlc/lua/playlist). Using sudo nautilus and removing the file per GUI failed as well, and now I'm not sure how to move forward.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
