What version of Puppy Linux? <edit: noticed slacko just now but still would like more details before I post a link to vlc>

2nd edit: Look through this thread. There may be instructions for vlc in there. Also this one.

I and other puppy linux experienced users can help. But not enough info yet.

1>puppy linux version and point to download page by inserting a url

2> make and model and specs of your computer. A page with a review of your computer showing the specs , another url pointing to it, would benefit your cause also.

Lastly, bookmark this sticky on this forum

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-links-457465/

The peruse it and use it.

I've used FATDOG64 Linux a like puppy linux distro but it is built to run in 64bit and not 32 bit. If I remember correctly they have their own repos have you tried googling vlc puppy linux to see if you can find it made into that package made to install other apps on its system yet?

Hope I am not jumping the gun here but one of the vlc pet files should work from here in Slack0 6.3

Answer my previous post in detail so other users can benefit reading this thread, instead of just saying. This works.

"I can not view certain videos online."

Could you mean you can't view flash or shockwave videos?

You need to find out what type of video you are attempting to view.

I downloaded vlc through package manager
It shows I downloaded vlc but when I click it, it does not load.
I fixed the online video problem by fixing click to play plugin.
Video is working.
I just needed vlc for my CD and DVD.

Thank you

Just for documenting the feature for other people, there is usually an entry on the equivalent of the start menu that lists commonly used pets though I have not looked with Fatdog64 or other 64bit ones.
