      @Prakash,

      May I know on which Linux distribution version you’re trying? If yes CentOS 6.x, you need to upgrade your system to install latest version of libraries…

      @Rabbani,

      It seems two repositories EPEL and Nux-Desktop conflicting packages, better try to disable EPEL repository and install the VLC from Nux-Desktop repository, I hope it will install without any errors..

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Mike,

      Thanks for updating us about new EPEL version, yes the old EPEL link is broken, I’ve updated with new working links..
