    Default VLC missing in OpenSuse

    Using OpenSuse 12.2 and VLC from repository Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/12.1/
    I have installed vlc-beta. When I open package manager in YAST, go to the VLC repository the stable vlc is missing/gone.
    Looking into the repository in a browser I can see that the vlc package really is there.
    http://download.videolan.org/pub/vlc...2.1.x86_64.rpm

    Anyone know why I can't see this package in YAST package manager? Yes I have refreshed all repositories.
    I also have Packman repository and vlc-2.0.3 is there, however VLC own repository has a newer version.

    I have even tried to remove the repository and then add it again. No effect.

    Those two repos are not compatible.

    I am not using any VLC packages from Packman. I want the latest VLC therefore I am using the VLC repository.
    Why should I not use VLC repository. I am not using any other media player, nor do I want to.

    This uses packman for the vlc packages, but I am using VLCs own repositories instead.

    And I don't mix this with Packman. Only using VLC for VLC and its required packages..

    because the one in there doesn't work..
    but, the one in packman does..

    (because this is *open*SUSE and the VLC in the VLC repo is crippled in
    order to meet the criteria of "open" (or something, i forgot) while the
    VLC in packman is ready to go....if you can't live without the very very
    very latest version then go fetch its source and compile and install
    it...i've never done that, so i don't know but it might be real easy, or
    *not*....the 2.0.3 i'm running is just great!!)

    and, note: if you ask for help and a guy with 32,000+ posts in this
    forum, and another guy with a @opensuse.org email address gives you FREE
    advice....you should probably consider taking their hints and say thank
    you, instead of "I am not using any VLC packages from Packman."

    so, don't take from packman, and when you can't get the other VLCs to
    run, then what??

    12.2 should be this repo, if you insist
    Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/12.2/

    I don't see what what your problem is

    Never said I disregarded your advice. I myself have never had any problem with VLC from the VLC repository. It works fine. No problem running it.

    Running the VLC from VLC repository was never my problem. I am currently running the vlc-beta from there, but wanted to go back to the stable version. My problem was that the vlc stable version wasn't there. I mean it is there in the repository, but I don't have it under available packages.

    I don't see what what your problem is
    I am still using OpenSuse 12.1. I see I have a typo in my previous post.
    As stated my problem is not with VLC itself, but that the stable version is not in the available packages list (even if it is in the repo).

    Thanks. Finally an explanation to this problem.

    Now back to VLC. Why does packman vlc work better than the one from VLC repo? Isn't it built from the same source? Wondering if this could be the cause for a problem I am having with VLC where it sometimes freezes the video for a few seconds while audio keeps playing.

    The advice to use vlc from the Packman repo, as well as the advice not to use the videolan repo, is based on experiences with the packages from the videolan repo. These packages have not been created by openSUSE, so if you insist on using packages from the vlc repo, report your issues at videolan.org
