VLC media player is one of the best cross platform multimedia player that can play any music and video formats thrown at it. It is not available in Fedora software center, so one need to go command-line way to install it. Let’s get started.
Install VLC on Fedora 24
STEP 1: Click ‘Activities’ and then launch ‘Terminal’.
STEP 2: Type the following command and hit enter to login as superuser. You need to also enter root password to continue.
STEP 3: Copy and paste the following in the Terminal to add the VLC repository source to Fedora.
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
STEP 4: Finally enter the following command to install VLC.
dnf install vlc
Keep a look at the terminal as it will begin downloading VLC. You will have to enter ‘y’ when prompted.
That’s it! If everything went well you should see ‘Complete!’ in the Terminal. Go ahead and look for VLC in the ‘Activities’.
