    Sorry. but these instructions did not work for me on my RHEL7 machine. In fact they married up perfectly to the instructions on (the Provider’s website); and those instructions failed as well.

    There were some dependencies for some libraries and symbols inside those libraries and they were nowhere to be found during my installation.

    The file dependencies missing were: () (Qt_5) () (Qt_5)

    So, I tried the instructions on tecadmin(dot)net and those actually DID WORK. The difference was in the repositories being used for RHEL7.

    Your site suggest, just like, to use the two Repos of:

    So, tecadmin(dot)net suggest using these two Repos (notice what is the same and what is different!!):

    RPM Fusion is in the process to update vlc in RHEL and CentOS 7 to latest vlc 3.0.x. (along ffmpeg-3.X).

    Fixing waste of my time for 5 min, centos and rhel only 2.x.x supprted.

      Why not install from source? also CentOS and RHEL only used for server purpose, not for desktop, go for Linux Mint or Ubuntu.

      • No Name says:

        Because from source, yum (dnf) does not update it automatically… Linux Mint and Ubuntu are for Enthusiasts, Pros use RHEL/CentOS/etc. Install once and forget. Need to play, use a VM, docker, etc. Pros don’t have time to waste reinstalling or upgrading systems.

        EOL of RHEL/CentOS/etc. > EOL hardware. Any other Linux distribution EOL Linux < EOL hardware.

    give me a starting vlc player in a fedora 23 steps

  6. Nicolas Chauvet says:

    Please consider moving to use RPM Fusion for RHEL, CentOS, SL and Fedora.

    There is a maintained version of vlc (2.2.8 for EL and 3.0.0 for Fedora).

    Also please don’t mix packages for EL and Fedora, that’s completely scary
