Thread: vlc media player 1-click install ?

  1. #1

    Default vlc media player 1-click install ?

    can i install vlc player by using this link VideoLAN - VLC media player for openSUSE

    is this safe? I'm using opensuse 11.3 and this seems to be the easiest way for me but you have to accept the key and answer any dialog

    is this ok/safe ?

    best regards alexander

    The real question is why would you want to when you can get it all from Packman? Here are the vlc files I keep installed and from where:

    vlc-mozillaplugin-1.1.5-1.pm.3.24-x86_64 -> PackMan :: Startseite
    libvlc5-1.1.5-1.pm.3.24-x86_64 -> PackMan :: Startseite
    libvlccore4-1.1.5-1.pm.3.24-x86_64 -> PackMan :: Startseite
    vlc-1.1.5-1.pm.3.24-x86_64 -> PackMan :: Startseite

    For openSUSE 11.3, add the following repository in YaST / Software Repositories:

    Code:
    http://packman.jacobs-university.de/suse/11.3/
    Then open YaST / Software Management, search on vlc and install the same files I show above. To confirm your installation, run this terminal command:

    Code:
    rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' vlc vlc-mozillaplugin libvlc5 libvlccore4

    Don't use VideoLan repo to avoid conflicts between codecs. Install vlc from packman.
