I have installed CentOS 6.4 in my laptop, I want to know the method of installing VLC in CentOS 6.4, Is it necessary to download the vlc package and compile or can I use
yum install vlc to install the same ?
You can install the following yum repositories (EPEL, famillecollet, & RPMFusion) so that you can install VLC:
$ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm $ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm $ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-free-release-6-1.noarch.rpm $ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/el/updates/6/i386/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-6-1.noarch.rpm
Now test to see if you see the VLC package:
$ yum --enablerepo=remi-test info vlc Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Available Packages Name : vlc Arch : i686 Version : 2.0.3 Release : 1.el6 Size : 1.9 M Repo : rpmfusion-free-updates Summary : The cross-platform open-source multimedia framework, player and server URL : http://www.videolan.org License : GPLv2+ Description : VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player and multimedia framework : capable of reading most audio and video formats as well as DVDs, Audio CDs VCDs, : and various streaming protocols. : It can also be used as a media converter or a server to stream in uni-cast or : multi-cast in IPv4 or IPv6 on networks.
Update the system before installing vlc
